Companies rectify garbage oversights

Businesses that were issued rectification notices on July 1, the first day of domestic garbage regulations, have made improvements.

Urban management and law enforcement authorities issued 623 rectification notices on July 1 and conducted return inspections yesterday.

The Teppanyaki Xiang, a restaurant in CapitaLand Hongkou Plaza in Hongkou District, was warned after failing to have the right trash bins with the right signs on them.

Yesterday, four bins for wet, dry, recyclable and hazardous trash were in place at the restaurant.

The Pankoo Korean restaurant inside the same shopping complex, which was also issued a rectification notice on July 1 for similar problem, had also fixed the irregularity, urban management and law enforcement officials found.

Chain restaurant Chamate which lacked a bin for hazardous waste had a new bin in place yesterday.

The director of the Pizza Marzano outlet inside the mall surnamed Zheng said: “We conducted training on service persons and chefs in late June, and we conduct second-time sorting if diners put garbage into the wrong bins.”

The outlet passed both inspections on July 1 and yesterday.

The Guangzhong Subdistrict urban management team covers about 800 eateries, with 200 in the mall. Since July 1, the team has issued more than 70 rectification notices and made 17 fines. 

“Mixed dumping and failure to install the right bins are the main problems so far,” said Zhang Liming, with the team.

Around 200 businesses were fined or warned in the first week of the new regulations in the city. Shopping malls and companies were worst, followed by residential complexes. Hospitals, schools and government authorities performed best.

Public areas with big footfall also needed to improve, the city urban management bureau said.

The next targets for urban managers will be garbage-sorting containers and transportation of garbage.
