Living in a city where 13,800 tonnes of waste are sent to landfill daily, we were excited to receive a donated solution for managing Crossroads’ own waste. Every day, as we receive donations, we handle cardboard, metal and plastics: all an abundant by-product of goods donations. With the compacting machine (above), donated by Ladies’ Circle Hong Kong, our environmental staff can compress all of this waste to a tiny 1/4 of their original volume. That means we can load four times as much waste onto a truck for recycling, giving four times the new life and purpose to something that could have been filling dump sites.four times the new life and purpose to something that could have been filling dump sites.
