Waste Disposal in Beijing
(Beijing Committee, China National Democratic Construction Association)
The proposal focused on waste sorting, collection and scientific treatment. It said burning or burying solid waste was an inefficient way to treat waste, while the scientific way was to sort waste, and send recyclable items to factories to be reused, non-recyclable organic items to treatment facilities to produce methane or fertilizers, and non-recyclable inorganic items to trash incinerators. The ultimate goal of waste disposal was to reuse as much waste as possible.
