Does this colorful, interesting looking container catch your eye? Several years ago we wrote about Hong Kong’s used clothing recycling program, and stumbling across this next-generation container shows that the movement continues to advance.

One interesting feature of this ‘recycle train’ container is that it is segmented into a multi-purpose collection box. By compartmentalizing the container itself, it brings added efficiency by pre-sorting the donations, thereby freeing the workers from that task.

Instead of just throwing away old clothes we no longer use, this is an option that might help someone in need.

The collection bins are eye-catching!

The fun, colorful, kid-friendly containers also provide a great way to enlist the young, and teach them about recycling.

By making it enjoyable for children to participate, it helps train them to integrate recycling into their lives and gets them thinking about the concept as they mature. It’s a major win for Hong Kong and a smart way to invest in the future of our city.

Let’s hope that this type of progressive urban planning begins to take hold in other areas of Hong Kong as well.
