To be sincerely speaking in my humble opinion without being sentimental and of course without offending anyone who thinks differently from my opinion but rather looking into this serious matter with perspective distinction and without condemning anyone's point of view, i honestly think and believe that i have nothing to say.
Thank you….

the issue with all of this is collection, if you have a big factory using durian creating tons of waste then it has chance if its just the market stalls shown then collect will never be cost effective
