SHANGHAI, Feb 11 (SMM) - The National Development and Reform Commission and other departments have recently issued the Guidelines on Accelerating the Construction of a Recycling System for Waste and Used Materials, proposing that by 2025, China's policy system for recycling waste and used materials will be further improved, and the level of resource recycling will be further raised.
According to the guidelines, by 2025, the waste material recycling network system will be basically established, and more than 1,000 green sorting centres will be built. The "scattered and polluted" situation of the renewable resources processing and utilisation industry will be significantly improved, and the level of agglomeration, scale, standardisation and informatisation will be greatly improved.
The recycled volume of 9 major renewable resources including iron and steel scrap, copper scrap, aluminium scrap, lead scrap, zinc scrap, paper scrap, plastics scrap, rubber scrap, and glass scrap will reach 450 million mt by 2025. The circulation order and transaction behaviour of second-hand commodities will be more standardised, and the transaction scale will increase significantly. About 60 large and medium-sized cities will take the lead in building a basically perfect recycling system for waste materials.
