A day in the life of Taiwanese Rubbish

July 8, 2008

My sister spent most of this year living in a small village in Taiwan.  I had no idea that rubbish in Taiwan is so progressive!


I thought that the Australian method of waste disposal – with 1 bin for glass, 1 bin for plastic, 1 bin for paper and 1 bin for regular waste was pretty advanced.  The Taiwanese method is even better!


One day I was chatting with her on the phone when suddenly she said “I hear the music! I have to go”

Music?  To say I was perplexed would be an understatement.
