Once You Are in Taichung - Daily Information

▶ Waste | ▶ Recycling | ▶ Phone | ▶ Post


Taiwan has been implementing waste reduction and waste sorting for many years. Please sort your waste in accordance with the administrative regulations. If your residential area does not have a centralized waste disposal area, please throw your waste into a garbage collection truck stopping by your residential area after sorting and wrapping your waste well.



Wastes that need to be sorted include paper, glass containers, paper containers, plastic containers, and metal containers.
If you stay in the South District in Taichung City, you can recycle paper and glass containers on Mondays; paper containers, plastic containers, and metal containers on Thursdays, and all types of recyclables on Saturdays.
*Paper containers need to be recycled separately from ordinary paper as special treatments need to be performed on the inner layers of paper containers.
**You can visit the resource recycling website set up by the Environmental Protection Bureau, Taichung City Government to confirm what are the recyclable materials.

The Taiwan national who acts as a guarantor (and must be at least 20 years) is required to bring his/her National Identity Card and another identification document with a photograph.
