English Version：Dr. R took scrap metals from recycling and went as far as to...?
R婆： Dr.R 哩後，這次收穫的是回收來的鐵罐跟鋁罐，啊因為長得都很像，R婆我吼不會分，都給你啦。
How are you, Dr. R! Since these iron and aluminum cans I recycled this time look so similar and it is hard for me to tell one from another, I will simply give all of them to you.
In fact, there is a quick and easy way to tell the difference between iron and aluminum cans. Since aluminum is much softer, when you squeeze and stamp on it, it will flatten! Then, Ms.R, it won't take up so much space next time you do the sorting! Besides, when you come across pressurized bottles, you must go out to an open space and vent the gas from them to prevent an accident. Only continue your recycling after you are sure the bottles have been completely vented.
So that's it, but Dr. R, what do you want these iron and aluminum cans for?
In fact, these bottles and cans are precious resources! Taking iron as an example, it can be regarded as the most useful, inexpensive, abundant, and most important metal in our daily life. It is the most critical yet basic structural material used in the manufacturing industry and also agriculture. It can also be made into steel. Internationally, the annual output of steel by a country also represents its level of modernization, so ‘iron’ can be considered the mother of industry.
Aluminum as an important industrial raw material, you can find this a silver-white, soft metal, easy to work into new shapes. As for lightweight aluminum alloys, they are often used to make bicycles, airplanes, boats, and other defense applications. In short, no matter if they are shipping containers or daily utensils such as bowls, pots, pans, electrical household appliances, machinery, and the like, we can't help but be amazed by the diverse uses of aluminum!
In fact, these iron and aluminum cans have already been introduced in the recycling classroom. After professional recycling and processing, the cans are converted into molten iron and aluminum at high temperatures for almost 100% reuse in all kinds of applications.
Since Taiwan recycles 4 million kilograms of metal containers every year, it sounds like these scrap metal containers are much more useful than me!
I always believe that there are no so-called waste resources, but only misplaced resources! Sincere thanks to you, for helping us do a great job of classifying recycling items every day, so we have such a successful and complete recycling system.
Hey, makes me so embarrassed! Actually, everyone has good recycling habits in their daily routine and that is why we have such good results. Let's do environmental protection and love the earth!
