DEP Announces Trash Collection Schedule for CNY Holiday

With the upcoming six-day-long Chinese New Year holiday, the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) published the trash collection schedule to help residents welcome the Year of the Goat with a cleaner environment.

According to the agency, with the exception of bulk waste, garbage pick-up will continue to run on Chinese New Year’s Eve (Wednesday, February 18) across all districts in Taipei City. From February 19 through 21, garbage collection is still available at 49 specified collection points across the city. With the exception of “Wenshan District Bojia Squad” collection site (which is open from 8 AM to 8:30 AM), all collection points will be available between 6 AM and 11 PM.

Please refer to the following link for more information on the collection points: http://english.dep.gov.taipei/ct.asp?xItem=91869405&ctNode=15277&mp=110002.

Following a short recess lasting from the first day to the third day of Chinese New Year, garbage collection service (with the exception of bulk waste pick-up) will resume on Sunday, February 22. All trash collection services will return to normal on Tuesday, February 24.
