According to the new garbage sorting regulations, Kunming and other 45 cities will be also involved in the classification, and a system will be supposed to set up by the end of 2020.

Xishan District of Kunming city has become a pilot area since last November. However, due to the lack of related experience and appropriate garbage disposal, there are only two kinds of bins in communities. 

Some residential quarters in Chenggong District have already implemented the incentive system to motivate citizens to sort out household waste. For instance, people who carry on a right garbage classification can get electronic cash as rewards. Thousands of families have started garbage sorting. 

Next year, Kunming and other cities of Yunnan may introduce an application to assist citizens with recognizing the category of garbage. Not only online serves, specially-assigned person can come to your house and help to sort garbage. To be sure, Kunming will draw on the experience of Beijing, Guangzhou and Shanghai and accelerate the regulations of garbage sorting.
