Australian rubbish color science: “zero waste” lead environmental protection trend
Sydney, April 21 People in Australia rank among the top 10 cities in the 2016 Global Livable City Ranking published by the Economist Intelligence Unit. Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth rank among the top 10 cities in the world. This is not only due to Australia’s unique natural scenery, but also with the Australian scientific classification, recycling of waste brought about by the environmental benefits are inseparable. In Australia, throwing rubbish is also an art, and the concept of “zero waste” is leading the environmental trend.Australia’s latest report on the state of the environment shows that the resource recovery rate in Australia has been increasing by 60% in the past few years. The Australian Government Department of Environment and Energy said that the waste separation not only recycles and regenerates resources, but also prevents the emission and pollution of harmful substances. Therefore, the Australian government attaches great importance to the implementation of relevant policies.Color classification to throw garbage to deepen the concept of great benefitIn Australia, rubbish is mainly divided into three categories: recyclable rubbish, domestic rubbish and non-renewable rubbish. Each house of a single-family house or townhouse has yellow, green and red three-color roller plastic buckets, each household should consciously classify the rubbish and place it in different color trash bins, and arrange according to relevant departments Recycle Time Drop the trash can to the specified location for recycling. Resident apartment buildings are arranged with garbage room, all kinds of waste also need to be classified into the corresponding color of the trash.How to find out the appropriate “place to live” for different types of rubbish according to “garbage color science”? According to the relevant department regulations, recyclable rubbish packaging usually has triangle recyclable signs, such as waste paper, glass bottles, cans, aluminum cans, etc. should be placed in the yellow trash, except the old clothes, mirrors, pottery, etc .; leaves, scissors Grass and other garden organic waste should be placed in a green plastic bucket; red plastic bucket corresponding to put non-renewable waste, such as household waste.For large wastes that can not be placed in trash, they are sorted by metal, plant and household waste and placed on the curb. They are collected by three trucks equipped with compression equipment. The government provides regular recovery services. Many abandoned items are attached with small pieces of paper, suggesting that items can be used normally and can be taken away by those in need. At the same time, the government also urges those in need to remove the remaining items and continue using them.
Various local governments in Australia have different arrangements for recycling waste. Sydney Mayor Crawford Moore told reporters that the municipal government, mainly through the waste recycling agencies to sign contracts, the garbage, waste recycling. Recycling categories include household chemicals, batteries, light bulbs, landscaping waste and all types of domestic waste. Recycling areas include houses, parks, public spaces, office buildings and other municipal buildings, while businesses handle their own waste and waste.Targeted publicity to promote strong environmental awareness of all peopleVarious levels of government in Australia are strengthening public awareness of environmental protection in various ways, including public consultation and design of relevant government websites, and other means of publicity and promotion.In New South Wales, for example, the state government set up community recycling centers for residents to solve the problem of refuse collection. They also conducted surveys on residents and introduced data and reports to improve the communication of information through feedback.Sydney Mayor Moore also said the Sydney City Government will popularize knowledge for all through the issuance of leaflets, hotlines and social media platforms to encourage effective waste recycling. For example, the issuance of the municipal green briefing “Green Villages” has publicized the waste management and recycling initiatives of other independent operations. The government will conduct targeted publicity if there is an incorrect recovery method. However, heavy penalties will be imposed on the illegal dumping of waste.A Chinese who has lived in Sydney for many years told reporters that Australians have high expectations for a good natural environment and a strong environmental awareness. Many people who just came to Australia often can not correctly classify and recycle rubbish. Therefore, it is helpful to understand government regulations and policies to enhance environmental awareness and regulate environmental protection.According to local conditions and policies of scientific management Chenghua dialectAustralia attaches great importance to waste treatment and reuse. The state governments have proposed a number of waste disposal programs for their own situation. New South Wales, for example, has proposed a “waste reduction, recycling increase” environmental protection program that addresses weak infrastructure and inadequate innovation. The NSW government said economic investment in the related projects will continue to increase. In the next four years, the government will spend an additional 333 million Australian dollars on environmental projects that “reduce waste and increase recovery.”Recently, the Sydney City Government has set a series of waste disposal targets through the new “Green Initiative 2016-2021” project, including the end of June 2021, the domestic waste recycling rate of 70% and so on. In response to how these goals are met, the City of Sydney is also actively developing and improving its waste management strategy to meet its “zero waste” philosophy.Scientific waste separation and recycling can not only generate environmental benefits, reduce harmful gas emissions, save energy, but also create social benefits, provide energy for industrial use, and create more employment opportunities than landfill disposal. Australia’s art of throwing garbage in the next effort, it is worth learning from.
