The city government will be putting up a waste market on April 22 in line with its celebration of Earth Day this month, according to the city’s Environmental Protection and Waste Management Department (EPWMD).
Andrea Po, acting chief of the Plans and Programs Development Division of the EPWMD, said the waste market would be located near the underpass fronting city hall.
The waste market is an incentive to get local residents into the habit of recycling to minimize the garbage generated by residents, she added.
