Confronted with the growing garbage output and deteriorating environment, Chinese government spares no effort in implementing the policy of garbage classification. Garbage sorting means dividing garbage into recyclable and unrecyclable, and requires people to sort out waste materials which may be directly used for the production of organic fertilizers, building materials, fuel oil, metal recycling and other aspects.
Compared with the traditional way of collecting waste, the new method has brought with it a variety of benefits. First and foremost, wastes are sent to different factories according to their classification rather than landfills, where they would be simply burnt and buried. What’s more, garbage classification not only cuts the spending on treating waste, but generates some handsome interest. Recyclable wastes, such as paper, glass and plastic, can be reused after being processed in related factories, while other wastes can be turned into the valuable. In a word, garbage classification is both vital and necessary to environmental protection as well as our life.
In my personal opinion, I maintain that it is imperative for our citizens to support garbage classification and strictly abide by the classification system. Government should take effective action as soon as possible, such as popularizing the awareness of garbage classification in the whole society, especially in primary and secondary education. With these measures taken, our society would be more harmonious, and we, as individuals, embrace more promising future.
