【EN】R-Walker #02: Those village resource recycling stations have linked local cultural characteristics and the passion and spirit of the residents

你記得自己家附近的資源回收車星期幾有服務嗎?

這個問題,一定考不倒經常追著垃圾車與資源回收車的民眾們。

Do you remember which days of the week when the recycling vehicle in your neighborhood is in service?

This is not a difficult question for those people who often chase garbage trucks and recycling trucks.

每天在巷口等待垃圾車、人人大包小包手提資收物的街角風景,儼然成為臺灣人的特色文化之一,而這些場景,更反映出我國積極做好環境保護,創造資源循環再利用的生活足跡。

People waiting for garbage trucks at the street corners and holding several bags of recycled items at the alleys have become a common scenario. These also reflect that our country has done a great job in environmental protection with active engagement by the public in reusing and recycling resources.

在臺灣,資收文化不僅只有「等待資收車」,還有與村里居民緊密扣連的「資源回收站」(以下簡稱村里資收站),此舉開創「一兼三顧」的資收新世代,讓村里居民可以透過作回收、賺取福利,創造資源零浪費。

In Taiwan, the resource recycling culture is not only "waiting for the recycling vehicles", but also the "resource recycling stations" establishing close links with the village residents. This policy has created a new generation of resource recycling by killing two birds with one stone, allowing village residents to earn by recycling and generating resources with zero waste left.

成功的村里資收站,對於村里民來說是不可或缺的存在,在這裡,鄰里居民可以透過各地方的回收機制與獎勵回饋措施,提高民眾資源回收意願,另一方面更可有效利用資源回收後的獎勵金,做為社區營造經費等。這在資源回收體制裡面也是非常重要的一環。

A successful village resource recycling station plays an indispensable role for village residents. Here, their willingness to recycle resources can be increased through local recycling mechanisms and a rewards system. On the other hand, they can use the incentive from resource recycling more effectively as community construction funds, which is an important part of the resource recycling system.

別具特色的資收站  里民服務三贏局面

A unique resource recycling station can work well in three parts including village resident service.

以結合回饋獎勵金的制度為例,鄰里居民只要依照資源回收九大分類,將回收物清洗後分類,再拿去村里資收站回收,工作人員就會在現場協助將資收物秤重分類、計算可換取的點數。這些點數累計之後,可以兌換民生用品,例如:洗碗精、肥皂或垃圾專用袋等,商品多元且實用性高,是每個家庭都用得到的商品。

We can take the system of combining incentives as an example, in which all the village residents need to do is wash and then classify the recyclables according to the nine major categories, then take them to the village resource recycling station, after which the station staff will help them classify and weigh the recycled items and convert into  exchangeable points. The resident can then exchange these accumulated points into household goods, such as dishwashing liquid, soap, garbage bags, etc., which are diverse and highly practical, and often used in every family.

此外,村里資收站變賣所得的費用,可成立公益專戶創造鄰里經費,用來支付資收站支出及回饋鄉里所需。舉例來說,有些鄉里將這筆資金用以補助弱勢里民的喪葬費用、低收補助或成立獎學金等等,或是在防疫期間,提供弱勢里民防疫抵用券,一同度過生計難關。

Moreover, the income from the sale of the recycled items from village resource recycling stations can be used to set up a public welfare account to create neighborhood funds, which can be used to pay the expenses of the resource recycling stations and to give back to the village. For example, in some townships, this fund is used to subsidize the funeral expenses of the disadvantaged residents, provide subsidies for low-income families, provide scholarships, etc., or during the epidemic prevention period, to provide vouchers for the vulnerable sector so that they can overcome the challenges with regard to their livelihood.

這種「結合回饋金與兌換商品」的做法,不只可以鼓勵居民做回收,也讓鄰里長主動帶領一群志工熱心推廣清運及資源回收活動,讓整個村里「活起來」,更串聯了厝邊隔壁的好感情。

By adding incentives to recycling, not only can the residents be encouraged to recycle, but also the village and neighborhood heads can make the community invigorated and even create harmony and teamwork among the residents.

Volunteers are helping residents with cleaning, transporting, and recycling resource, thus creating harmony and teamwork among the residents.

村里資收站與生態結合  環境教育從小紮根

With the implementation of the village resource recycling station project, care for the environment can be inculcated in children.

村里資收站發揮在地創意,借社區發展與地利之便,順勢推廣環境教育。在資收站點外圍建設自然生態池提供居民作為休憩觀賞之用,有時志工看見附近遊玩的孩童,還會即興發揮來堂環境解說,讓孩子在生活中認識自然與家鄉。

The village resource recycling stations can take advantage of the local creativity, community development and their geographical position to promote environmental education at the same time. A natural ecological pool is built outside the resource recycling station to provide residents with a place for recreation. Sometimes volunteers can use the time spent by the villagers here to explain nature and environment to the children playing.

靠「山」的村里資收站介紹山區景觀特色,靠「海」的則進一步推廣海洋環境教育。像是「海」線村里資收站,就想出淨灘資收2.0版,結合淨攤活動與資收行動,讓民眾藉由撿拾沙灘上可回收的廢棄物換取當季水果、民生用品,不只可以鼓勵居民定時定點加入淨灘行列,連外地來的觀光客,看到這樣「一舉兩得」的活動,也常常自動自發的撿起海灘上的回收物,為自己換得一份好吃的水果下午茶。

Village resource recycling stations near "mountains" can introduce mountain landscape features, while those near the "sea" can further promote marine environmental education. For example, the village resource recycling stations near the “sea” can combine the activities of cleaning the beach and resource recycling to enable the public to gain points to exchange for seasonal fruits and livelihood supplies by picking up recyclable waste on the beach, which not only encourages residents to regularly clean the beach, but also even motivate tourists from other cities or countries to automatically pick up the recyclables on the beach in exchange for a delicious fruit or afternoon tea for themselves when they see such an event.

靠「山」的資收站,則是延伸資收站功能,以社區經濟發展為出發,與鄰近大專院校合作,用當地特產例如檸檬、香茅研發檸檬酵素與香茅防蚊液,並在資收站內銷售販賣,逐步建立相關產業特色,活化社區經濟,為長期留守家鄉的青年或主婦們開闢新的工作出路。

The resource recycling stations near "mountains" can extend their function as a resource recycling station by aiding in economic development by working with neighboring colleges and universities in developing lemon enzymes and lemongrass anti-mosquito spray or lotion for sale in the resource recycling stations by using locally grown plants such as lemon and lemongrass. Through such activities, relevant industry characteristics can be gradually established, and the community economy can be activated so as that more and new work opportunities will be created for young people or housewives who have long stayed in their hometowns.

「資源回收」對於臺灣民眾來說,早已不再只是個動作或是觀念,更連結著我們生活的每個點到點,而「村里資收站」的設置就是最具代表的資收例子,不僅凝聚著眾人間的情感,兼顧環保、活絡經濟、教育等目標,更達成鄰里建設與互助的功能。不如就從現在開始,留心家中附近的村里資收站在哪裡,下次帶著可回收的資源回收物到現場貢獻一己之力,說不定也有意想不到的收穫喔!

"Recycling resource" no longer pertains to just a concept for Taiwanese but a link to our lives. The establishment of "village resource recycling stations can achieve the following goals: environmental protection, economic stimulation, environmental education, etc. It also realizes the functions through the support and cooperation of the residents. Let’s try to learn where the village resource recycling stations near your home are and then bring recyclable resources to these stations next time. Maybe there are some good stuff awaiting you!
