Garbage Classification Accumulates Credits

In order to motivate communities to reduce household garbage, classify garbage, recycle resource and reduce waste pollution, Wuxi city promoted an activity of Build Beautiful Home Together, and spread the zero waste card program.

Ms. Li is charge of this program; she told the journalist that zero waste card is a kind of IC card. People can send recyclable garbage to recycling factory and accumulate credits in the card. The credits can be used in certain supermarket to buy things.


According to credit rules, 10 waste tubes can accumulate one credit, 1 kg clean milk bag equals to one credit.


In this way, we can better classify garbage and reduce waste. This method can be spread to other cities.
