Recycling Raw Material Packaging in Hsinchu 

In Hsinchu, Taiwan, most of the waste generated during the production process comes from the packaging for raw materials, including bags, wrapping, pallets, and metal drums. As such, the site implemented a process for collecting, sorting, and recycling these materials, and now requires raw material suppliers to use recycled materials in their packaging wherever possible. As a result, in 2016, the plant reduced solid landfill waste by 38.7 percent.
