In order to drive efficient use of waste resources and recycling, the Beijing Municipal Administration Committee has developed work plans to promote proper waste disposal and management, and train all walks of life in efficient waste management practices.
Prior to May 31 of this year, the Beijing Municipal Administration Committee held 15 training seminars attended by over 1800 individuals from more than 800 work units. The Committee also published and distributed 10,000 promotional guidebooks, 2000 training manuals, and produced a 22-minute communications program on CD, introducing efficient waste management.
Recently, the first household waste management team was officially established in Dongcheng District, Beijing. The team has officially commenced its pilot waste management training program, providing 10 demonstrations to local communities in the district since May 31, 2004.
