Recycling small appliances, Daegu


Recycling small appliances...

Daegu City government has started to collect unused small household electric appliances to be recycled. Cameras, mp3 players, blenders, hair dryers, etc. are normally thrown out with regular waste using standard (official) garbage bags. But now, efforts are being made to take advantage of these discarded resources with new methods of disassembling and recycling small electric appliances.

Some areas in the city provide special containers in which to place the unwanted items. If you do not see any of these special containers in your area, your discarded small appliances can be placed in a
regular recycling bin according to the material of which they are primarily composed. For example, if the appliance is contains mainly metal, it will go in the metal bin.

For larger items such as washing machines, refrigerators, etc. a disposal sticker needs to be
purchased from your local municipal Dong office. (General recycling and garbage disposal policies around Korea)
