Making great efforts to sort garbage out
From:Shanghai Daily  |  2019-03-12 07:29

SHANGHAI aims to have standardized garbage sorting in more than 70 percent of local residential communities by the end of the year.

The Shanghai Greenery and Sanitation Administration Bureau will also construct garbage sorting demonstration zones. Eleven districts are committed to building such zones.

This year the city will build 8,000 service sites for garbage sorting and recycling, as well as 170 waste transfer stations.

The bureau will put more garbage trucks into use, increasing the number of wet waste trucks to 924 and those for hazardous wastes to 17.

It will push ahead with construction of nine waste disposal terminal facilities, and strive to launch three new wet waste disposal projects in the first half of next year.

It will make efforts to start four new dry waste programs in Fengxian, Jinshan and Baoshan districts as well as the Pudong New Area during the first quarter of next year as well.

The Laogang Ecological and Environmental Protection Base in Pudong is a key area for disposing of city household waste.

Its waste incineration plant can burn 3,000 tons of waste each day to produce electricity. Two landfills can handle 9,900 tons of waste every day.

A second-stage waste incineration program will be put into use at the end of June, to dispose of 6,000 tons of waste per day.
