Environment is for everyone, so you can be not only "R-Walkers" but also "R-Experts" by recycling resources properly!

【EN】R-Walker#4: I have made the environment clean! Resource recycling lives on.

隨著民眾環保意識覺醒,現在,做好資源回收人人有責,只要有這份心,隨手做、隨時做,大家都可以成為「回收行家」,而臺灣最一開始穿梭在街頭的「回收行家」,你一定多多少少有聽過這熟悉的聲音。

With the increasing awareness of the public on environmental protection, it has now become everyone’s responsibility to recycle resources properly and they can do it anytime, anywhere if they are willing to. You must have once in a while heard the familiar voice of the "recyclers" who shuttled through the streets at the very beginning in Taiwan.

「酒矸倘賣嘸」是許多五、六年級生的共同回憶,在臺灣早期,不時可看到騎著三輪車的老人沿街喊著「有酒矸倘賣嘸?」(臺語,意思是有空酒瓶要賣嗎),回收空酒瓶、壞家電,當時一個玻璃瓶可換一毛錢;時至今日,回收物品從寶特瓶、鐵鋁罐到各種紙類、廢電池等13大類,做好垃圾分類已成為每個人的生活日常。

The song "Jiu gan tang mai bu (any wine bottle to sell?)" is a common memory for many people born in the1960s and 1970s and could be also heard from elderly people riding tricycles shouting along the street in the early days of Taiwan. (This sentence is a question in Taiwanese dialect, meaning if there are empty wine bottles to sell). These recyclers collected empty wine bottles and broken home appliances, for at that time, a glass bottle could be sold for a dime of NT dollar. Today, there are 13 categories of recyclable items which range from PET bottles, iron and aluminum cans to all kinds of papers, waste batteries, etc. It has been a daily routine for everyone to classify the garbage properly.

為讓臺灣走向循環經濟,將廢棄物轉換為再生資源,政府積極推動資源回收再利用,從1997年的「資源回收四合一計畫」,到2006年開始實施垃圾強制分類,使得回收率大幅提升,十多年來回收率已突破五成(2019年資源回收率達55.14%、垃圾回收率61.3%),優於歐美等先進國家,寶特瓶回收率更高達95%。

In order to lead Taiwan toward a circular economy and to convert waste into renewable resources, the government has proactively promoted the recycling and reuse of resources. From "The 4-in-1 Program" promoted in 1997 to the mandatory garbage classification implemented since 2006, the recycling rate increased greatly and has exceeded 50% (in 2019, the resource recycling rate reached 55.14% and garbage recycling rate reached 61.3%) in the past ten years, which is ahead of some advanced countries in Europe and the United States. The recycling rate of PET bottles has even reached as high as 95%.

回收行家各地綻放,做環保還能領補助

Many R-Experts have emerged around Taiwan and they can get subsidies when working for environmental protection.

為推動循環經濟,提升資收物回收再利用,環保署透過「循環經濟資收大軍計畫」,雇用從事資源回收的個體戶,協助資源回收分類,減輕清潔隊回收工作負擔與成本。以2019年來說,平均每個月僱用列冊個體戶達3,245人,每人每月工作25小時,可增加3,506元的額外收入。

In order to promote the circular economy and enhance the recycling and reuse of resources, the EPA employs self-employed individuals engaged in resource recycling through the "Circular Economy Resource Recycling Army Program" to assist in recycling and sorting resources so as to reduce the burden and cost for cleaning workers. For example, in 2019, there were 3,245 registered self-employed people who were employed by the agency every month with each of them working 25 hours a month on average and making an additional income of NT$ 3,506.

同時為兼顧資收個體戶的生計,環保署另推出「資收關懷計畫」,只要是有列冊的個體戶都可加入此計畫,將撿到的應回收廢棄物交給清潔隊,即可依重量、數量計價獲得補助,更針對回收率較低的電風扇、筆記型電腦、平板電腦、鍵盤等廢棄物品,再給予加碼補助。有了這些計畫後,「回收行家」讓環璄更整潔,也減輕經濟壓力。

At the same time, in order to take care of the livelihood of self-employed individuals, the EPA has launched the "Resource Recycling Care Program", in which any registered self-employed individual can participate so that they can get subsidies based on weight and quantity of the collected recyclable wastes that they hand in to the cleaning workers. Furthermore, additional subsidies will be provided for waste products such as electric fans, laptops, tablets, keyboards, and other wastes which are rarely recycled. With these programs, "R-Experts" can make the environment cleaner and ease the burden on their financial needs.

Any self-employed individual who has registered with the county and city governments is eligible for subsidies with a maximum of NT$ 5,000 a month per person.

今年以來,因受疫情影響,使得資源回收價格下滑,「資收關懷計畫」除將每人每月3,500元補貼上限提高至5,000元,也提供優於回收市場的價格,像是廢紙容器補助單價為每公斤18元(市場價格每公斤只有1.4元),廢玻璃容器每公斤7元(市場價0.5元),廢棄鍵盤每個30元(市場1元),協助第一線資收個體戶度過難關及提高回收成效。

Due to the impact of the COVID-19, the price of resource recycling has fallen since this year. The "Resource Recycling Care Program" has not only increased the subsidy limit from NT$ 3,500 a month per person to NT$ 5,000 but also offered prices higher than those on the recycling market, such as that the subsidized price for waste paper containers is NT$ 18 per kilogram (the market price is only NT$ 1.4 per kilogram), the price for waste glass containers is NT$ 7 per kilogram (the market price is NT$ 0.5), and the price for one discarded keyboard is NT$ 30 (the market price is NT$ 1). In this way, the EPA can help self-employed individuals overcome difficulties and enhance their recycling efficiency at the same time.

撐起臺灣高回收率的背後,除了要歸功於全民一起努力從源頭減量、落實垃圾分類,還有一群「回收行家」,如清潔隊資源回收車、各地村里資源回收站,更有一群默默付出的環保志工、資收個體戶們協助回收可用物資,讓環境變乾淨了!

The high recycling rate in Taiwan can be attributed to every citizen working together to reduce waste from the beginning and implement waste sorting. Special mention should also be given to the the "R-Experts", such as the resource recycling trucks and the recycling stations in each village, the environmental protection volunteers who contribute to this advocacy silently and self-employed individuals who are assisting in recycling reusable materials. With their efforts, the environment has become cleaner.
