◎ Please purchase the Designated Garbage Bags in shops with “Taipei City Government Approved Symbol”, to avoid penalties resulting from buying and misusing counterfeit bags.

◎ When making purchases of garbage bags, please ensure a fake-preventing label is attached on each pack. Three ways to recognize a fake-preventing label:
1. When you touch the engraving pattern and words on the label, you would feel an obvious lumpy texture similar to bill surface.
2. Look at the label from 15∘angle, and make sure hidden “T.P” characters are revealed at the sides.
3. Illuminate the label with special UV light, and the corresponding number of the bag volume would appear on it.

◎ Please use Designated Garbage Bags when you deliver garbage. Don’t over compress the garbage bag, or it may cause tearing or leakage of bags.
