30% of garbage from bin bags are packaging materials

Prepare for a better 100 years / Now Green Action!

Plastic kimchi container, disposable container with tteokbokki remaining, beer can, plastic bag…

These are the materials collected from Seoul resource recovery faculty on the 20th of January. Picking something that should not be put in a bin bag quickly piled up. A Seoul city official said, "If you filter out food waste and recycled goods that need to be discharged separately, garbage in the pay-as-you-go bag will be reduced by 20-30%."

Starting this year, the Seoul Metropolitan Incheon initiated the 'Capital Reclaimed Landfill System.' Garbage-filling space in the metropolitan landfills is shrinking faster than expected. As a result, domestic waste discharged in bin bags should be reduced by 10% (about 70,000 tons) compared to 2018.
