Only the top layer is uncovered and consists of empty plastic bottles, mostly cooking oil, and some Coca Cola.

Transporting any materials in this way is officially very forbidden in Beijing, but in reality nobody cares, not at least the police. A few other recycling examples: bottles, tricycle, and a blue truck.
