提提大家♻️ #西貢不是垃圾站 又嚟啦!

♻️乾淨回收=清潔=乾爽=分類

✴️11月3日

西貢市@街市外(9:30am -12:30)

南圍@市公所(9:30-11:30am)

可回收以下:

1. 乾淨塑膠製品#1#2#4,5,6,7

2. 乾淨玻璃樽

3. 乾淨發泡膠及生果網

4.剪開咗的紙包裝飲品盒

5. 充電電磁

♻️【我們收Tetra pak紙包飲品盒】

🙏🏻一定要根據我們要求的規格才收啊🙏🏻

1. 一定要完整剪開(見附圖)

2.一定要清洗乾淨、乾淨、乾淨

🤔點解呀?現在香港本地是未有回收商會收tetrapak的。因此,我們義工計劃將紙包飲品盒Upcycle, 剪成條狀再做手織收納籃,現在仍屬物料收集階段。盼這社區實驗能成為tetrapak 在香港回收的其中一個出路,更希望有一天tetrapak能在本地回收循環再造。
