Mom, which dustbin should I choose to throw this apple core?, daily conversation like this are common for the residents living in the Dongmeng Linye Community. Since this community was chosen as one of the garbage sorting pilots in November of last year, everyone, even little kids, should choose the right dustbin.  

Based on the principle of government-leading, compulsory sorting, now a number of districts(county-level cities or counties), including Xunyang District, Lianxi District, Chaisang District, Jiujiang Economic and Technological Development Zone, Balihu New District, Gongqingcheng City and Yongxiu County, have been carried out the compulsory sorting rules of urban household waste. A so-called four-aspects classification model, dividing the garbage into four sorts (harmful waste, perishable or kitchen waste, recyclable waste and other waste), is adopted in the areas like residential districts, markets, party and government institutions, organizations, schools and enterprises, etc. While in some public places such as the airports, train stations, bus stations, bus stops, gardens and squares and commercial facilities, the three-aspects classification model will be adopted, which divides the garbage into recyclable waste, harmful waste and other waste. Meanwhile, the waste incineration power generation project with a total investment of 1.04 billion Yuan is under construction, and some other projects, like the treatment plant for urban kitchen waste, the storage field for disposal of construction garbage and the harmless treatment dump for excrement, with a budget of 280 million Yuan, have been scheduled.
