Recently, the Suzhou pilot project of "Remodeling packaging: China-EU cooperation enabling recycling value chain" jointly carried out by China and Germany was launched, and the new model of "full recycling of plastic waste" was piloted in Jinchang Street, Gusu District, which became the first street in the city to carry out the soft bag recycling project, and the garbage classification was continuously promoted in the direction of refinement.
The harmonious coexistence of man and nature is one of the five characteristics of Chinese path to modernization. The special chapter of the report of the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) deploys "promote green development, promote the harmonious coexistence of human and nature", and points out that it is necessary to implement a comprehensive conservation strategy, promote the conservation and intensive use of various resources, accelerate the construction of a waste recycling system, advocate green consumption, and promote the formation of a green and low-carbon production and lifestyle. We often say that "garbage is a resource in the wrong place". The implementation of garbage classification is an important measure to implement the comprehensive conservation strategy, and also a powerful guarantee to reduce pollution and protect the environment. At the same time, it is also an effective way to promote resource conservation and intensive recycling.
Suzhou's waste classification work started early and went steadily. After more than 20 years of exploration, a "Suzhou Road" for garbage classification and treatment has been found. In particular, the Suzhou Municipal Regulations on the Classification and Management of Garbage was promulgated and implemented, and the working method of "three fixations and one supervision" was established and widely covered. The domestic garbage classification and treatment system was basically completed in the built-up area, forming a classification closed-loop of four links, namely, putting, collecting, transporting and treating. All parts of the city have continued to increase publicity and guidance, and created many characteristic work brands that are grounded and the masses are willing to participate in, so that the concept of "garbage classification is a new fashion" has been deeply rooted in the hearts of the people and become the daily habits of the general public.
The garbage classification work involves a wide range of contents and requires intensive cultivation. The waste plastic soft bags involved in this pilot project refer to the waste such as the air column bag of the express buffer bag, the washing liquid packaging bag, the plastic tray of the dumplings, and the fast food box, which are generally considered as low-value recyclables. According to statistics, the overall recycling rate of plastic products in China is less than 31%, and the recycling rate of low-value plastics is very small. With the rapid development of packaging, express delivery and other industries, the output of these plastic wastes is increasing day by day. 425kg of low value plastics, cardboard, foam and other low value plastics have been collected from the classified recycling point of No. 25 Community, Tongjing North Road, a single pilot street within one month. Among them, low value plastics such as films and other plastics account for nearly a quarter. If they are not effectively disposed of, environmental pollution and resource waste will result. The pilot implementation of recycling and recycling of plastic waste is an intensive promotion of waste classification and further improves the waste recycling system.
The waste classification work involves a long chain, and the pilot needs the joint efforts of all parties. As a new recycling category, the solution to the terminal outlet is the key. From the designated garbage classification supervisor to the transfer vehicle, the treatment terminal should be in place. When the residents throw garbage, the supervisor can accurately sort out the low-value recyclable materials. After reaching a certain amount, the transfer vehicle will be collected and transported regularly, and the terminal treatment unit will recycle, truly forming a recycling closed-loop. At the same time, as the starting point of source classification, residents should also get familiar with the new classification and delivery methods as soon as possible, further deepen the concept of resource conservation and utilization, and develop good green living habits.
Everyone participates in garbage classification and benefits from green life! Let's join hands to practice the concept of "garbage classification is a new fashion", and start from every move to fight the battle of protecting the blue sky, blue water and pure land!
