Financial support will be provided for the construction of inf

f infrastructure to dispose of domestic waste and hazardous solid waste. State-owned banks wi

ll contribute some of the funding needed as the two-year pilot program moves forward, Zhuang said.

“We hope governments of provincial regions enhance their support of these pilot areas a

nd also encourage them to launch their own pilot programs if their conditions permit,” he said.

The State Council unveiled the “no-waste city” pilot plan in January, aiming to minimize gen

eration of waste, maximize its utilization, safely dispose of solid waste and reduce landfills.

It also pledged to establish an index system for “no-waste cities” and

an institutional and technical system for the management of such cities by 2020.

By that time, it’s hoped the pilot cities will see th

eir industrial waste storage stop growing and their agricultural waste fully used, it said.
