Taipei Garbage Truck Routes

In Taiwan, garbage truck is a big deal for local neighborhoods. The truck comes everyday at specific time to pick up house trash and recycling materials. This has been Taiwanese’ everyday routine for decades, and became a critical moment for neighborhoods to come out of their own houses, gather at some street corner, chatting and greeting each other while waiting for the truck. In another words, the garbage truck routes generate the micro-socializing moments for the local residents.
