The name of the project is “Dandenong Regenerator”. This factory is designed to recycle and reuse some recyclable wastes, in order to solve the problem of waste material recycling and reusing in the neighborhood and city. The factory not only collect the waste materials from nearby factories and warehouses in the neighborhood by garbage trucks, but also encourages people bring their recyclable wastes to here and get cashback rewards, improve the recycling rate and cultivate people's awareness of the need for environmental protection.
