Chinese government to take the lead waste-wise

China – The Government Offices Administration (GOA) of China’s State Council has unveiled a new recycling system covering all government offices, which have been called upon to play a more active role in conserving the country’s resources.

Following an agreement signed at the event, China Recycling Development Corporation and a GOA department will work in tandem with central government departments to realise this goal. Together, they will attempt to build a network for sorting and recycling waste paper, plastic, hazardous waste and discarded electronic devices.

China aims to recycle up to 70% of all recyclable waste by 2015, in line with a national target set out in an earlier State Council circular.
