NEW RECYCLING POINTS IN SEOUL


There were times when it was really hard to find a place to donate used clothes, books and other household things as this was not a very popular idea in Korea. Especially for expat community, it was a little harder to give things away to any specific organization when leaving Korea or moving to a new place, city or simply decluttering their houses because most of the informations was available only in Korean language and the locations were very far.

Then we saw, one of the pioneer orhanizations like BEAUTIFUL STORES who did an excellent job to collect the used things from people and then sell it in their store and donate the money for charitable causes. They were only a phone call away and used to come at your given address. They preferably wanted the things to be clean prior to donation and put in a carton.

A very recent addition to this noble cause is the Seoul Global Center and its partner offices. Now Itaewon Global village, Seorae global village , Yukseom Global village - all have a donation point where you can leave your clothes etc. These things are then sold at the flea markets.

Very recently, Seorae Global Village center announced that they will collect clothes and various used items until 2011 October 13 (Thursday) and the donations will be sold at the Flea Market organized on 16 October 2011 by the Korean Charity Association `AREUMDAUM`.

Venue of the Flea Market: Seoul World Cup Stadium, from noon to 04:00 p.m.
Sponsors: Seoul Metropolitan Gouvernment, Joonghang Newspaper.

By the way, if you know Korean or can get help from somebody then bookmark the following website.
