The bulky wastes include couch, bed, table and chair, closet, bicycle and tree branches left after garden-trimming. Those wastes are not easy to collect or clean up at fixed time and location since their sizes are gigantic. Taiwan does not have well-found recycling system; therefore, the local governments usually bury or incinerate the garbage directly, which leaded to waste of precious resources. Sometime the bulky waste, such as furniture or bicycle, are barely seen any breakage on their exterior; hence, it is acceptable to continue using them. If the quality is definitely below people’s standard, there is a professional system to collect valuable parts from the waste for regeneration; on the other hand, those useless things will be classified and shredded first. Secondly, the plastic, metal and wooden materials in them will also be collected for regeneration, which will greatly minimize the size and cost of waste processing. Moreover, it will save the abuse of natural resources and alleviate the burden we cause to the environment. Eventually, we hope to reach the goal of “All Classified, Zero Waste” and establish a society with sustainable resource regeneration system. The regeneration system also means positively on the issue of decreasing social unemployment rate and the education of environmental protection. In recent years, the bulky waste shipping and valuable furniture maintenance and fixing services provided by the environmental protection bureau have been deeply appreciated by citizens; it becomes one of the most citizens supported policies
The Tao-Yuan County is producing 41 tons of bulky wastes daily. About 21 tons come from sweeping team’s collection and other 20 tons are from furniture company. The Tao-Yuan County regenerated station is currently located at Sa-Lun Village, Da-Yuan. Unfortunately, not every town or city in Tao-Yuan County ship their bulky wastes to the station, which is not efficient. In the year of 98, the Tao-Yuan County, under the bulky waste regeneration policy guidance project, established its debut bulky waste repairing and selling station. This project, under the guidance of Tao-Yuan County bulky waste recycling and set up of regeneration station, further extended the concept to better level; we established achievement inspection and rewarding system on private regeneration stations in Tao-Yuan County. Through the inspection system, we select good site private stations to join us. Currently the project supports seven regeneration stations and will be able to educate community citizens the concept of bulky waste regeneration, which for sure will enhance the policy of regeneration station establishment.
