Do you find yourself tossing beer bottles, dead batteries and empty shampoo bottles in the rubbish bin at home? Do you also find you hate yourself for it later? If you’re nodding in shameful agreement, then we have an event for you: Global Friendship’s Recycle Collection Zone on September 9.
The sustainability-focused event is the third of its kind in Guangzhou, and is jointly organized by Global Friendship, Eco Canton and Canton Residence.
At the recycling drive, volunteers will be available to help you organize your recyclable items from 10am-1pm at the south gate of The Canton Place.

What kinds of rubbish will be accepted at the Recycling Collection Zone? Below is the full list:
Plastic take-out containers
Plastic tea cups (not the lids)
Batteries and power banks
Toothbrushes and empty toothpaste tubes
Shampoo/shower gel bottles
Global Friendship’s first Recycling Collection Zone event was held this year on Earth Day (April 22) and over 200 kilograms of recyclable items were collected, according to organizers.
So, from now until September 9, be sure to save your recyclables, because the eco-lovin’ folks at Global Friendship and Eco Canton are keen to ensure that your rubbish is dealt with in an environmentally-friend manner.
