Legislation to hold Garbage Classification Hearing among Residents
The garbage sorting legislation will be holding a hearing tomorrow and are inviting participants ranging from the city political advisers, representatives of property management companies and residents. The legislation is to follow up on the practice of classifying garbage collection during fixed periods of time which is intended to further reduce garbage and increase resource utilization and boost efficiency in recycling.
A drafted law that went into discussion is requiring the classification of garbage into three types namely harmful garbage, recyclable items and other trash. The law requires residents to place garbage into different trash cans at fixed time periods which is from 7 am to 9 am and from 7 pm to 9 pm. This type of garbage classification practice could definitely reduce the use of garbage bags.
Several residential areas that piloted garbage sorting have gathered good results using the practice. But those living in old residential areas still remain slow in classifying their garbage and the law is not being fully implemented even when in areas that classified trash bins were placed. A residential complex said that the practice is poorly implemented and only a handful of households are sorting their garbage will most of the residents just throw their trash into this bins unsorted.
