District leader urges carrying garbage sorting forward
03/13/2019

Changning will strive to become the best performer throughout the city or even the country in garbage sorting, district Party secretary Wang Weiren pointed out during a recent conference.

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of the tasks this year is to implement garbage sorting and fixed-time collection of household waste in over 90 percent of local neighborhoods while grassroots cadres, urban management officers, neighborhood committee personnel, community property management staff as well as volunteers ensure fulfillment.

 

 

 

Sorting waste properly is being promoted throughout Changning. Waste dumpsters in different colors are being installed around the district.

 

 

 

 

In Chengjiaqiao Community, garbage sorting and fixed-time collection of household waste is in practice every day, involving every neighborhood, business and resident.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Residents at Hongchu neighborhood have their own “green account.” They will get 10 points as a reward each time they sort garbage properly. They can exchange the points accumulated for items such as a bottle of soy sauce or 10 kilograms of rice.

 

 

 

 

At Deluxe Family Gubei Garden, previously every two households shared a public trash can installed in the apartment buildings. Hence, only 60 percent of residents at the international neighborhood supported garbage sorting initially as the policy would change their habits.

 

 

 

Through the neighborhood management’s effort, all 230 trash cans were removed from the apartment buildings and since then local residents throw their garbage into new recycling bins.

 

 

 

More than 90 percent of them abide by the new rule and separate garbage in four categories - dry, wet, recyclable and hazardous - before throwing them in different bins.

 

 

 

 

 

 

At Linkong Economic Demonstration Zone, all the enterprises have started sorting garbage.

 

 

 

The demonstration zone management has installed facilities with clear signs to help companies and office workers in the zone to dispose the waste correctly.

 

 

 

Urban management officers, neighborhood committee personnel, community property management staff as well as volunteers in Changning have been trained to promote waste sorting among the public.

 

 

 

Specially designed garbage bags and waste bins recommended by the government are available at local markets, such as Carrefour.

 

 

 

Black bags for dry waste and brown transparent ones for wet. There are small holes on the bottom of the black bags and hence make them for dry waste disposal only.

 

 

 

Landfills and incinerators are the last stops for most of the waste after they are put into the right bin by residents.

 

 

 

 

By the end of last year, garbage sorting had involved more than half of the neighborhoods in Changning. The practice will spread to over 90 percent of the neighborhoods this year.
