January 6 was the first day that Qingdao Household Refuse Sorting Management Measures officially came into effect. In response to the call of the higher authority, the Publicity and Education Center of Qingdao has actively carried out a series of activities to popularize the Measures.
The center held a launch ceremony to popularize related law regulations. At the ceremony, the staff members distributed the Proposal of Household Refuse Sorting and the Guide Manual of Household Refuse Sorting of Qingdao High-tech Zone, and invited the public to sign on the banners.
"I think the implementation of the garbage classification policy can better motivate everyone to effectively implement the garbage classification and contribute to the environmental protection,” said Zhao Lijia, a local resident.
"If there are regulations in these areas, they must be implemented. After all, protecting the earth and the environment is everyone's responsibility," said Ma Ning.
According to the Measures, household garbage includes recyclable materials, hazardous waste, kitchen waste and other waste, consistent with the national standard. Individuals who do not distribute household waste in accordance with the measures will be fined less than 200 yuan.
