Hello friends! your travel south korea moderator here! so I know a lot of people don't just want to visit south Korea but also they want to live here... you know what threw me off when I first came to this amazing country? this you might or might not know about...
today I would like to teach you guys about the garbage system! hum yeah it might not seam very interesting but ever since I came here I was blown away by the way korean government works the garbage system and for some this might be hard to adjust to. so stick with me it gets interesting!
This is my apartment complex and the garbage area. Regular garbage is to be put into a special bag that you buy for about 5 cents at your local grocery store ( this is a big way that garbage guy gets payed as well) also every region has a different bag logo etc
this is the food compactor, yes you put your food waste here.. yuck right?
and this is where things get divided.. yes that right.. everything gets divided! this drove me nuts at first! really it did! In the U.S I was only used to recycling cans and plastic and not necessarily all the time either!
ok guys so at first I was like why do I have to throw this food here? this is gross! especially the part where we have to put food into the big machine ( which by the way it's also a system to weigh how much each house holds puts in it by using a key card) this system charges you about $10 at the end of the month for single home- meaning not apartment complex etc because landlords pay for the fee .
and this is how it's done inside the home, you already have boxes or in my case nice bags lol with already separated items so I don't have to do it later.
like I said before, at first it was a pain in the butt, but now I'm just like wow this is awesome! sure it's a little more work than usual but this system is so awesome! it saves money and the earth in the process!
what do you guys think about this? I really wish they did this in all the countries! it would help so much with landfill. Many countries would be a lot greener if they did this... Also here we have no choice because you will get fined if you don't recycle as according lol
