The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) remarked that garbage trucks will continue to operate as usual between October 1 and 3. However, in line with the standard schedule, waste removal service will not be available on Sunday, October 4.
 
Furthermore, to provide residents with the most ideal environment for moon-watching and outdoor picnics, the agency instructed all affiliated units to strengthen environment maintenance efforts and deploy its staff to patrols major locations and venues known to attract visitors during the holidays. It also called upon the public to do their part in keeping the environment clean by not littering when they visit or utilize these facilities. 
 
According to DEP, it anticipates an influx of visitors at popular moon-watching sites such as Daan Forest Park, Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall, Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, and Dahu Park.

Also, they should sort litter and food waste accordingly, depositing them at the appropriate trash bins set up at the venues before they leave.
