Some 6,935 notices have been issued to rectify garbage-sorting irregularities since the implementation of the garbage sorting regulation Sept. 1.
A reporter with Shenzhen Special Zone Daily found that the majority of problematic residential communities have rectified their wrong operations during a revisit Sunday.
Yinlong Garden in Luohu District is the first residential compound in Shenzhen that received a notice to rectify irregularities on garbage classification.
Problems found at that time included bulky waste not being handled in a prompt manner and garbage bins not being placed as required.
Now, the bulky waste was handled according to requirements. The property management office also collectively placed bins for different types of trash. The kitchen waste bin was also removed during the day time when kitchen waste disposal is prohibited.
Hu Tieqing, head of the law enforcement team in Qingshuihe Subdistrict, said that the housing estate’s current operations are in line with standards.
A staff member surnamed Wang with the Yinlong Garden management office said that they immediately moved to rectify behaviors after receiving the notice.
A resident surnamed Wang living in the Yinlong Garden said that the hygiene environment in the community has been improving. Posters have also been placed to remind residents of the garbage sorting rules.
Changes were also seen in Dongcui Garden, another residential community in Luohu that received a notice during the previous law enforcement campaign.
In the past, the community only set up a narrow space for residents to dispose of waste. At present, the community has relocated the disposal site to an area near the entrance of the community to make it more convenient.
According to Zhang Hua, deputy director of the law enforcement supervision office of the city’s urban management bureau, most problems had been addressed at problematic residential communities by the second visit.
The transitional period in September for residents and related management units to adapt to the new rules of waste classification will end soon. In October, punishments will be doled out to those resisting garbage-sorting regulations outright.
