Shanghai gears up for garbage sorting

June 19, 2019

The daily amount of recyclable waste collected in Shanghai last month exceeded 3,200 tons, 15 times more than 2017, the government said on Tuesday.

Also in May, the daily amount of wet waste was 6,220 tons, a 77 percent rise from 2017.

With the first garbage-sorting regulation in Shanghai set to take effect on July 1, residents and companies are getting ready to meet the legal requirements. City legislators made a tour to several locations for an inspection on Tuesday afternoon.
