And the trash cans that are installed in different institutions are different. This new recycling markers have pictogram, signature color, and the time of rotting garbage. And this system also applies to public institution trash can. The recycling system importantly needs the participation of citizens. So the purpose of the new recycling system is to encourage more enjoyable experiences of recycling.
