Where Can I Recycle?
Before you start separating materials that you can recycle, it is important to be pragmatic in what items can be recycled. Once you segregate them, you can either reuse the ones that can be functional as household items and DIY crafts. The rest of the materials can be donated, dropped off or even sold to the “saleng people”, who ride through the streets in their tricycle-wagon, or “saleng”, often rummaging through Bangkok garbage to find things that they can sell to earn money. You can sell newspapers, cans, glass, metal, old clothes and many items to them for a nominal amount. The “saleng” usually weigh these materials by kilograms and will pay you in cash.
In order to recycle effectively, there are lots of efficient ways you can do it. One way is to look for drop-off points, shops and organizations that allow you to donate or sell your recyclable materials.
