1 Public Community
To promote household waste sorting through recycling organizations established by the
community. That is, to separate
recyclable resources like bottles, cans, containers, paper, and waste mercury batteries from
other household waste and
sort them into individual categories. These resource materials and wastes are collected
separately at recycling points
or by cleaning teams and private recycling enterprises. After collection, these resources
shall then be reused.
Moreover, by subsidizing private groups, through different kinds of recycling promotion
activities with the private
sector, and random inspection of the status of these activities, the goal of propagating
recycling work was achieved.
Local Authorities (Cleaning Teams)
Local authorities shall collect and dispose of resource materials and general waste
separately, the implementation
methods to be decided and stipulated by local authorities respectively. Income from sales of
resource materials from
those collected from the public or by local cleaning teams shall be fed back at a specified
ratio to the people and
workers who participated.
To encourage the private sector to join in recycling, recycling enterprises purchase waste
resources from communities,
groups, and cleaning teams at market price. In order to avoid recycling and disposal
enterprises creating pollution
during the recycling or disposal process of regulated recyclable waste, “Responsible
Enterprise Regulated Recyclable
Waste Management Regulations” and “Methods and Facilities Standards for the Recycling,
Storage, Clearance, and Disposal
of Regulated Recyclable Waste” were enacted as ordinances for recycling enterprises to
implement recycling work.
Based on the principle of “Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR)”, this fund was defined so
that recycling, clearance,
and disposal work is the responsibility of the manufacturers, importers, and vendors. These
shall pay the recycling, clearance, and disposal fees, and subsidize recycling and recycling
enterprises and local
governments to handle the recycling, clearing, and reprocessing work. With the Fee Rate
Review Committee’s oversight and
the audit and certification system, it is ensured that every recyclable item will be
adequately recycled and disposed
of. The recycling fund is the key that has made this project successful.
