Environmental issues a focus

THE Bao’an delegation to the sixth session of the sixth Shenzhen Municipal People’s Congress held its group meeting at the Civic Center yesterday afternoon, where issues on environmental protection were heatedly discussed.

“On page 24 of the government work report, we can see garbage disposal and classification. I also submitted a proposal on garbage classification for the two sessions,” said deputy Wang Wenruo.

On the work report it says the government will endeavor to solve the problem of city garbage by implementing mandatory garbage classification, and improving the system for garbage dumping, collecting, transporting and disposal. It will facilitate the overall coverage of household garbage classification and will build 1,700 housing estates that meet the household garbage classification standard.

“In the former part it says ‘overall coverage’ and in the latter part it says ‘1,700 housing estates.’ I don’t know how many housing estates there are in Shenzhen, but 1,700 housing estates account for what percent of the total number of housing estates in the city?” said Wang, adding that apart from urban villages, which find it difficult to implement garbage classification, all housing estates should implement garbage classification.

Hu Ping, another deputy from Bao’an, agreed with Wang’s opinion on garbage classification. “Garbage reduction and classification is a big problem. Our current garbage disposal capacity is about 8,000 tons a day, which is far from enough. The refuse landfill that we plan to build still cannot meet our needs,” said Hu.

Hu stressed that the biggest question is how to process wet garbage. “Wet garbage imposes many problems, including leakage during transportation. And as it rots, the acidity or alkalinity that it produces eats away at the heavy metal.”

For Hu, leveraging different resources and encouraging research and development enterprises to improve garbage classification is the key.

Yang Jialu, another deputy from Bao’an, is concerned about wastewater treatment. “The government work report says it will finish laying 2,350 kilometers of wastewater pipe, and Bao’an is under stress because we account for about half of it.”

“After the management of the Maozhou River and the renovation of the wastewater treatment facilities at two water plants, our daily wastewater treatment capacity is 30 tons, which still fails to meet the demand,” said Yang.
