Not to derail the thread too much but the sad part is that a lot of the stuff you have carefully sorted is burned or dumped.
I believe a large part of the plastics are incinerated anyway as it has no economic value and recycled plastic has few uses in reality as its properties are unpredictable.
I heard it's also hard to recycle effectively and more expensive than just making new glass
Paper coffee cups and biandang boxes all have plastic coatings are often contaminated with food waste. I doubt more than a few % are recycled. Only one company can process paper coffee cups in Taiwan and they claim that they just process a small percentage of total.
Will try and dig out some real stats as to what happens to this stuff in Taiwan.
It seems very hard to find if one reads the Facebook post above.
Vast majority of waste by volume is probably incinerated.
Best to try and avoid using these so called recyclable products or at least use the hell out of what you have or use your own flasks, carrier bags etc.
Caveat- Taiwan at least has a great head start on places such as Singapore. A lot of food waste is recycled, that could be a good thing depending on your perspective.
