Shang­hai goes all-in for garbage sort­ing

China Daily European Weekly - - News Digest -

Au­thor­i­ties in Shang­hai are ask­ing for opin­ions from the pub­lic un­til Dec 6 on a draft reg­u­la­tion re­gard­ing garbage clas­si­fi­ca­tion. The doc­u­ment was sub­mit­ted to the city’s leg­isla­tive body for a sec­ond re­view re­cently. The draft aims to reg­u­late all pro­cesses re­lated to garbage sort­ing, in­clud­ing dump­ing, col­lec­tion, trans­porta­tion and treat­ment. It re­tained the four cat­e­gories of garbage clas­si­fi­ca­tion — dry, wet, re­cy­clable and harm­ful — which were spec­i­fied in a plan re­leased ear­lier by the Shang­hai mu­nic­i­pal gov­ern­ment. “The draft makes clear the de­tails of garbage sort­ing man­age­ment, strength­ens su­per­vi­sion re­gard­ing this mat­ter and boosts aware­ness of garbage clas­si­fi­ca­tion for mem­bers of the pub­lic,” says Ding Wei, di­rec­tor of the Leg­isla­tive Af­fairs Com­mis­sion of the Shang­hai Peo­ple’s Congress.
