Taiwan Quick Take: Leftovers project expanded

A spokesman at the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) said on Thursday that its newly launched "leftovers to foodstuff" project has proven so successful in a test group of 150 chickens that the number will be increased to 1,000. The spokesman said that leftovers have posed an environmental problem for some time. Several months ago the EPA decided to initiate a project to collect two tonnes of leftovers from several communities in Huatan (花壇), Changhua County, and process the "waste" into 300kg of dry chicken feed. The flock of 150 chickens were fed on recycled scraps, and were recently examined by EPA experts and found to be in excellent health, he noted.
