What is your impression about the village resource recycling stations?
The village resource recycling stations not only assist recycling but also play a particularly important role as a link in the three major chains in the recycling system: the public, education, and environmental protection!
By recycling properly, we give back to the society at the same time.
To encourage the public to recycle properly, the government has promoted the local village resource recycling stations! All local environmental departments have also offered rewards such as instant gift exchange or points collection.
For example, by bringing items to the resource recycling stations, you can collect points to exchange for toilet paper, dish soap, soap and other articles for daily use; moreover, according to the type of items brought in for recycling, you can accumulate points and exchange it for credits to top up your Easy Card or Taoyuan Citizen Card with iPass, which can be conveniently used to take public transportation or to shop in convenience stores.
On the one hand, it benefits the people, and on the other hand, some of the income by selling the recycled items can also be used for the environmental maintenance and environmental protection activities in a community, and even for the care of the elderly and the vulnerable so that we can achieve the function of environmental sustainability and creating a community spirit.
Environmental classrooms hidden in the village resource recycling stations
The village resource recycling station can also be fun.
For example, the resource recycling station in Sankuai Village in Pingtung has worked together with the local community to create a demonstration teaching station and set up environmental protection facilities in the community, experiential teaching and other courses to successfully promote the concept of resource recycling and environmental protection.
Resource recycling cannot only protect the environment but also show respect for life on earth.
Village resource recycling stations are also adapted to their respective local conditions. For example, the marine recycling stations are located near the sea so when the local environmental departments have implemented the environmental protection policy of "Wastes should not be left in the sea but kept on board", they are encouraging the general public and fishermen to recycle "paper, iron, aluminum, plastic and glass," the five categories of waste.
Fishermen will be rewarded with special gifts or points. When the fishermen return from working on the sea, the wastes will be effectively recycled, and the marine environment can be protected as well!
Have you learned sufficiently about the three major links in the village resource recycling stations which include the public, education, and environmental protection? Next time just bring your recycled items to the village resource recycling near your house. Maybe you will find something different!
