While last five years (2005-2010) have registered 4.2% hike in annual average growth of wastes, the annual average growth of recycling has declined to 0.79%, which has led to the Installation and Operation of Recirculated Resource Trade Center for raising the resource recirculation rate.

The project was promoted by the Ministry of Environment in 2012, Ubiquitous Public Service Promotion Project jointly with the Ministry of Public administration and Security (November 2011 to December 2011), and was selected as one of the major government policy tasks for the second half of 2012. In July 2012, the Plan on Establishment and Operation of Recirculated Resource Trade Center was formulated, and for three months from September 2012, a trial run site was installed and operated with a view to its legitimate online operation.

With the implementation of publicity campaign and events targeting used home electronics, furniture, and baby products, and wastes, as from December 2012, 14,437 users joined the membership, registered their items in 2,252 cases, and sold items (in trade) in 1,108 cases, showing a steady growth.

Furthermore, based on the basic data of Allbaro System and transition-related information, a matching system was created, which through computerization of trades in wastes between demand and supply led to the creation of Computerized Wastes Trade System (Recirculated Resource Trade Center) in November 2012.
In the future, a legal basis will be provided in Act on the Promotion of Saving and Recirculating of Resources to push for improvement of related institutions including EPR for institutionalization and stable operation of Recirculated Resource Trade Center, while publicity will be brought to the presence of the Center to promote its use by the public and a resource recirculating society.

Growth of users and trade volume will be induced by attracting sellers of refurbished products (products with defects repaired and resold at prices lower than original market price), which enjoy active membership and trading, while a series of events are planned to help reinforce BOM marketing through social networking services, increase membership, and attract customers. Besides, the member information sharing is being pushed for between the System and the Recirculated Resource Trade Center.
