On January another event in the remarkable replication process towards ‘Cooperation between Local Governments to Address Shared Needs’ of the DELGOSEA pilot city took place in Chiang Rai.

Mobile community services have been conducted in another one of the 62 communities within the administrative district of Chiang Rai municipality. As recently introduced, the ‘exchange recyclable waste for eggs’ campaign have been implemented into the mobile community services framework.

Success can easily be measured by the huge amounts of recyclable waste collected by the community clerk. Residents, especially children, were able to drop off more than half a ton (586 kilogram) of waste. The waste has been collected and exchanged for eggs.

Less garbage and more eggs in the community as well as a lot of recyclable material - for further processing by the community - leaves everyone happy. At the end of the day, especially the children are the beneficiaries. Not only will they be able to enjoy some nice egg-based dishes but they will also grow up and live in a clean environment.
