Korea / Residential area

This estate is located in the opposite in the Government Complex Buildings with mostly large size apartments between 82 m2- 150 m2 . First class living conditions with pleasant and abundant green zone is one of the special attractions in Gwacheon area.


The Residents Association in the area has involved in the planning of the reconstruction of their neighbourhood .Due to the location of collection station just right in the middle of living area, it has been planned to install the underground level and above ground is implemented as a park in harmony with living environment for this high-end residential property. The residents association is very positive with the result and their new green waste handling.  

A new type of Korean waste inlet for using authorized plastic bags is used. Apartments blocks in Gwacheon area have been built several decades ago and this new way of handing waste has been the starting concept of reconstruction projects planning in the future.

The location of Gwacheon is the south outskirt of Seoul and this advanced case has attracted lots of residents associations within Seoul territory which are in the consideration of rebuilding the apartments. Eventually, this leads and creates the trends of waste management within people as voluntary moving force to affect their opinion and desire for their own development of apartments in demolishing the old one to build into the new apartments.


The evaluation from the people in using the system directly creates lots of positive opinion and this directly affected the added value for the apartment price with sustainable living environment for daily life as well.
