The objective of educating and promoting recycling has been achieved in the community. The limitation is that the tech-empowered regeneration causes barriers for those who are not adept at new technologies such as the use of smartphones, apps, etc. Another barrier for the project was the lack of involvement of Jiulong Residential Community Committee in the initial stage of the project makes the Recycling Club not the priority for the village-level government.
