Free Seedling Giveaway at Beitou Refuse Incineration Plant March 7

To promote a low-carbon, sustainable environment for the residents, Beitou Refuse Incineration Plant will be giving away free tree seedlings 9AM to noon 12 on March 7 at the square in front of its swimming pool.
A kit contains a sapling, a bottle of homemade liquid fertilizer developed by the plant, and a pack of regenerated soil from the city’s landfills. Interested individuals can bring any of the following items to exchange it for a kit: 10 waste batteries (type No.1 or 2), 20 waste batteries (type No.3), used discs, or 5 second-hand reference books. There are 500 sets available.
According to Environmental Protection Commissioner Liou Ming-long, planting trees will help green the environment, retain water, and bring positive change to the climate. A 20-year-old tree can absorb carbon dioxide at a rate of 11 to 18 kilograms per year. Afforestation effort will greatly contribute to the mitigation of global warming.
Beitou Refuse Incineration Plant hopes that the event will raise awareness on the importance of garbage recycling while serving to beautify our living environment. The first 30 people to line up for the seedling kit will receive a special gift.
