South China's island province Hainan has completed the drafting of the plan to implement garbage sorting in 2020, the provincial department of housing and urban-rural development said.
The plan includes the goals, responsibilities of concerned parties and requirements for garbage sorting, according to the department. It aims to recycle over 35 percent of the province's domestic garbage by 2021.
Currently, the province mainly adopts the modes of landfill and incineration for garbage disposal.
So far, a total of 21 domestic garbage disposal facilities have been built in Hainan, including 16 landfills and 5 waste incineration power plants. Some 250 garbage transfer stations and 12,500 garbage collection points have been built.
An integrated urban-rural garbage disposal system has also been established as 95 percent of the villages in the province have facilities for garbage collection and transportation, while the village cleaners in Hainan totaled about 19,000.Responsible editor： 陈书敏
