Do you recycle your newspapers, plastic, clothes? Yes, most people will send old clothes to the Salvation Army bins. For paper, plastic, etc, you might have the local council collecting them by putting them in special bins or bags.
In Singapore and Malaysia, there's always this Karang Guni man. (Rag and Bone Man) For our home, every other weekend, there would be this man who would be shouting Karang Guni or Siu Gu Boh Zhua (Colleting old newspaper in Hokkien, a Chinese dialect) If you have clothes, newpaper etc to sell, just shout back whatever they shout. They will stop and you can pass what "junk" you have to them. Newspaper cost 7 cents a kilo.
This picture is the collection van that has collected all the "junk" for the day.
Just last week, my sis sold 90kg (according to the weighing machine of the karang guni man) of old newspaper from our home. Haha. WHAT? you said, yeah, that's how much newspaper we have in our home. It's around 2 months worth of newspaper. The money went to a local charity :-)
