The new coronavirus cant stop the process of garbage sorting in Beijing, and the whole work is being effectively promoted.
Every one of us throws out a lot of garbage every day. In some countries with good waste management, most of the garbage will be disposed by sanitary landfill, incineration and composting. In some parts of developing countries, the garbage is often simply piled up or landfilled, which leads to the spread of odor and pollutes the soil and groundwater.
The cost of harmless treatment of garbage is very high, which is also the weakness of many countries. People consume a lot of resources, produce, consume and produce garbage in large quantities. The more developed countries, the more garbage per capita.
According to its own situation, Beijing has studied the classification methods of domestic waste in foreign cities and formulated its own classification scheme. It is generally classified according to the composition and quantity of garbage, combined with the resource utilization and treatment methods of local garbage. For example, Germany is generally divided into paper, glass, metal and plastic; Australia is generally divided into compostable garbage, recyclable garbage and non recyclable garbage; Japan is generally divided into plastic bottles, recyclable plastics, other plastics, resource waste, large-scale garbage, combustible waste, non combustible garbage and hazardous waste, etc.
Garbage classification is also an economic activity, the purpose is to improve the resource value and economic value of garbage, and strive to make the best use of it.
The classified collection of garbage can reduce the amount and equipment of garbage treatment, reduce the cost of treatment, and reduce the consumption of land resources. It has social, economic and ecological benefits. With the promotion of waste classification in Beijing, we believe that in the near future, the whole system will be more perfect and humanized.
