HONG KONG-SOCIAL-ENVIRONMENT-ELDERLY-CARDBOARD-COLLECTOR

This picture taken on July 24, 2018 shows a worker lifting compressed cardboard out of an industrial compactor at a recycling depot in the Wan Chai district of Hong Kong - Cardboard collectors pick up discarded packing boxes from shops, markets and residential buildings, selling them for a few dollars to recycling depots, where cardboard is more valuable than plastic. The depots then ship it abroad -- up to 95 percent of it to mainland China in 2016, according to local authorities -- as Hong Kong has no recycling plants of its own to convert it into usable materials.
