personal note: I have been talking about land pollution in China ever since I was a visiting professor in China 20098-2014. Especially when you visit small towns, trash is everywhere…somehow Chinese have no sense of Property and its worth or value when you see so much trash thrown everywhere near they live! Students who visited USA love our beautiful cities and places where we live…so nive, they said! Because the value of my house is dependent on the environment…clean, neat and organised…that adds value to my house. China must learn that, also. steve, peace, usa June 6, 2019 firstname.lastname@example.org blog – https://getting2knowyou-china.com

chinadaily.com.cn | Updated: 2019-06-06
About 92.2 percent of Chinese people consider trash sorting important to protect the environment, while only over 30 percent of respondents said they were doing “pretty good”, or “relatively well” in sorting the trash, as per a recent survey by the Ministry of Ecology and Environment.
According to a government’s plan, all major cities in China are expected to initiate garbage classification this year, and the system should be completed and functioning by the end of 2025.
With the help of effective supervision and guidance, a growing number of people will cultivate the good habit of garbage classification and take action to improve their living environment, contributing to a green and sustainable society.
