nt mechanism will be established to guide and encourage residents to separate their waste.
The comprehensive coverage pattern of domestic waste classification has taken shape, and上海千花网女神会所
more than 70 percent of residential areas achieve the set waste-classification standard.
上海千花网Shanghai has simultaneously followed the construction period of nine domestic garbage treatm
ent projects and accelerated work on three organic garbage projects and four other garbage projects.
By the end of 2019, the other garbage incineration capacity will reach上海千花网
19,300 tons per day and organic garbage capacity will reach 5,500 tons per day.
上海千花网女神会所Adhering to the four categories method and forming the Shanghai model
Shanghai’s waste classification standard has changed many times.
Today the city’s standard is set to the aforementioned four categories of waste.上海千花网
Regulations on this standard clearly categorize the whole process: units and individuals sh
ould be classified at source; property companies should be classified and transferred; receiving enterprises sh上海千花网女神会所
ould be classified and transported; and the final disposal enterprises should be classified and disposed.
上海千花网Clarifying the purpose of the four categories establishes a social responsibi
lity system so that garbage producers, government departments, managers, collection, transportation and dis
posal units and social organizations can perform their duties and responsibilities.上海千花网女神会所
This is all with the goal of putting in place the Shanghai model of Chinese domestic waste classification.
Forming a system based on the rule of law上海千花网
Shanghai in 2000 became China’s first pilot for municipal solid waste classification.上海千花网女神会所
To ensure the pilot’s success, the Shanghai Municipal Government in 2014 issued ten policies and documents.
Laws and regulations are obviously crucial to any waste management system, and on July
ntering a new era, Shanghai encountered unprecedented opportunities
上海千花坊in domestic garbage treatment, reflected in three later-developing advantages.
(1) Shanghai has the advantage of “overtaking in bends”
上海千花坊女神会所Four first-tier cities across the world established modern garbage classification systems about 50 years ago.
These systems were first carried out from the perspective of the circular economy. Shangh
ai, as a catcher, started to classify and recycle municipal garbage through comprehensive integration.上海千花坊
Today garbage in Shanghai is classified into four categories: harmful; recyclable; organic; and other.
上海千花坊女神会所This integrates waste recycling, composting, incineration and landfills, and has the advantage of overtaking in be
nds. Shanghai for example provides a fixed subsidy for the construction of wet garbage resource facilities.
(2) Shanghai has the advantage of “backward force”上海千花坊女神会所
Shanghai’s waste treatment sets the maximum capacity of landfill and incineration fa
上海千花坊cilities, reverses the front-end classification collection and resource utilization, and reduces quantity at the source.
The city encourages classification by disposing
of organic garbage for free and calculating the cost of other garbage disposal.上海千花坊女神会所
Shanghai also promotes quality control and both rewards and
上海千花坊punishes district treatment facilities through its garbage treatment fee system.
(3) Shanghai has the advantage of “governance orientation”上海千花坊女神会所
Shanghai residents participate in making waste classification a bottom-up action.
Enterprises strengthen market-oriented changes and fulfill their corporate social responsibility.
The election to Japan’s upper house on Sunday has acquired added significance because the result would be critical to the ruli
上海419论坛ng Liberal Democratic Party’s attempts to amend the country’s pacifist Constitution.
Constitutional amendment, the amendment to Article 9 in particular, has been a controversial 上海419论坛
issue in Japan since the end of World War II. Article 9 renounces war, and notes that the proh
上海419论坛品茶微信ibition on the use of force by Japan is a clear constitutional rule that the Japanese government has to follow. It also
prohibits the maintenance of armed forces and denies Japan the right of “belligerency”. 上海419论坛
And it is precisely to change Article 9-which would allow Japan to have a regular military and be
come a normal country-that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has made constitutional amendment his goal. 上海419论坛
But Abe should realize that amending the Constitution is no small feat beca
上海419论坛品茶微信use for that, the ruling coalition of the LDP and Komeito has to have a two-thirds ma
jority in both houses of parliament, and then win an absolute majority of votes in a ref
erendum. Several attempts have been made to amend the Constitution, but none has been successful. 上海419论坛
Abe should also know that the ruling LDP’s coalition
上海419论坛品茶微信artner Komeito is a conservative party which is skeptical about amending Article 9.
Differences among political parties, even within o
ne party, have made it almost impossible for the LDP to amend the Constitution. 上海419论坛
For example, there are diverse voices on constitutional amendment within the Abe-led LDP. While some support rev
ising the pacifist Constitution to allow Japan to have a regular military, others say the Japa 上海419论坛品茶微信
n Self-Defense Forces, which has constitutional sanction, should be strengthened to the level of a full-fledged military.
上海419论坛品茶微信The LDP and Nippon Ishin no Kai are in favor of a constitutional amendment. But the Constitutional Democratic Party of J
apan, Democratic Party for the People, and the Japanese Communist Party strongly oppose the idea.
d in incorporating garbage classification into the rule of law.
上海419品茶微信The regulations for example say that people can be fined up to 2,00
0 yuan for mixed garbage and 50,000 yuan for mixed transportation by units.
The regulations also hold that disposable cups and utensils cannot be used in the Shanghai Party internal office and 上海419government organs.
Hotels will no longer provide disposable household necessities or they’ll
上海419品茶微信be fined at least 500 yuan and less than 5,000 yuan. Caterers cannot provide disposable tab
leware – if they do and fail to make corrections within a time limit, they will be fined the same amount. 上海419

In an article in Arms Control Today, a monthly magazine on nonprolif

上海夜生活女神会所”Without New START, there would be no legally binding, verifiable limits on the US or Ru

New START was signed by Russia and the US in 2010 and took effect in 20

Strategic Offensive Reductions Treaty, which was terminated when New START took effect.
