Do you remember what day of the week the recycling truck near your home has service? This question will definitely fail the people who are often chasing garbage trucks and resource recycling trucks. Every day, the street corner scene where people are waiting for garbage trucks at the alleys, and everyone is carrying a lot of bags and small bags to collect things has become one of the characteristic cultures of Taiwanese. These scenes also reflect that my country is actively doing a good job in environmental protection and creating a new environment for recycling and reuse of resources. life footprint. In Taiwan, the culture of capital collection is not only "waiting for the collection car", but also the "resource recycling station" (hereinafter referred to as the village collection station) that is closely linked with the residents of the village. For generations, village residents can recycle and earn welfare, creating zero waste of resources. A successful village resource collection station is an indispensable existence for the villagers. Here, the neighbors can increase the willingness of the people to recycle resources through the recycling mechanism and reward and feedback measures in various places.

The recovered rewards will be used as community building funds, etc. This is also a very important part of the resource recycling system. A unique three-win situation for the service of the people in the collection station Taking the system of combining rewards and rewards as an example, residents in the neighborhood only need to clean and classify the recyclables according to the nine major categories of resource recycling, and then take them to the village collection station for recycling. , Calculate the number of points that can be exchanged. After these points are accumulated, they can be exchanged for daily necessities, such as dishwashing detergent, soap or special bags for garbage, etc. The commodities are diverse and highly practical, and are commodities that every family can use. In addition, the fees from the sale of the collection station in the village can be used to set up a special public welfare account to create neighborhood funds, which can be used to pay for the collection station and give back to the village. For example, some Raster to Vector Conversion villages use the funds to subsidize the funeral expenses of the disadvantaged residents, provide low-income subsidies or establish scholarships, etc., or during the epidemic prevention period, provide the disadvantaged residents with epidemic prevention vouchers to tide over the difficulties of livelihood together. This approach of "combining cash back and exchanging commodities" not only encourages residents to recycle, but also allows the head of the neighborhood to actively lead a group of volunteers to enthusiastically promote cleanup and resource recycling activities, so that the entire village can "live" and connect the house.

The village capital collection station and ecology are combined with environmental education from childhood. The village capital collection station gives full play to local creativity and promotes environmental education by taking advantage of community development and geographical advantages. A natural ecological pool is built on the periphery of the collection site for residents to enjoy and enjoy.

Not only can residents be encouraged to join the ranks of beach cleaning at regular and fixed points, but even tourists from other places, seeing such a "two birds with one stone" activity, often automatically pick up the recyclables on the beach to exchange for a delicious fruit for themselves. afternoon tea.
