【中/英】Dr.R拿了回收廢金屬容器竟然是要!?

 English VersionDr. 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.

Dr.R:其實有一個方法能快速分辨鐵罐跟鋁罐,鋁罐的材質較軟,一捏、一踩就扁掉了!這樣R婆你下次再整理的時候也比較不佔空間喔!還有這種氣壓瓶啊,為了以防萬一,建議到空曠的地方,確認瓶內「完全洩氣」,才能回收喔。

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.

R婆:(臺灣國語)西吼,是說Dr.R,你要這些廢鐵鋁罐做什麼?

So that's it, but Dr. R, what do you want these iron and aluminum cans for?

Dr.R:這些瓶瓶罐罐,都是非常珍貴的資源!以鐵來說,在日常生活裡,鐵可以算是最有用、最廉價、最豐富、最重要的金屬。他在工農業的生產中,是最重要的基本結構材料;還可以做成鋼鐵,在國際上鋼鐵的年產量也代表一個國家的現代化水準,所以「鐵」被稱作工業之母。

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.

而鋁的特性:白色、軟、易加工,是重要工業原料。鋁合金,更因為質輕,常被拿來打造單車、飛機、船隻,與其他國防用途;總之不管是在貨櫃、鍋碗瓢盆等日常用品、家用電器、機械設備,兩者的應用,可說是多到令人目不暇給!

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!

其實這些鐵罐、鋁罐之前的回收小教室中就有介紹到,再經過專業的回收處理後,再高溫熔成鐵水、鋁水,幾乎是可以百分之百回收再利用。

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.

R婆:臺灣每年回收四百萬公斤的金屬容器,這樣聽起來這些廢金屬容器比我這個R婆還有用捏!

Since Taiwan recycles 4 million kilograms of metal containers every year, it sounds like these scrap metal containers are much more useful than me!

Dr.R:我一直都相信沒有廢棄的資源,只是這些資源放錯地方!但是也要謝謝R婆,每天幫助我們做好資源回收的分類,才有這麼順暢完整的資源回收體系。

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.

R婆:唉唷,把我講那麼偉大!都不好意思了啦!大家一起從生活中有正確的回收習慣,才有這麼好的成果,做環保,愛地球!
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!
