垃圾 is pronounced "lājī" in mainland China, "lèsè" in Taiwan.

I always thought it had different characters, e.g. 勒色. Any idea why there's a different pronunciation for the same characters only in Taiwan?

According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taiwanese_Mandarin#Differences_from_Mainland_Mandarin

"lèsè" came from Wu, and was the standard pronunciation in mainland Mandarin until 1949, when the ROC government fled to Taiwan.

If you're British you call it a rubbish bin: the container that you put garbage in.
