Our reporter Cai Xiaoling reported: for Zhuhai, an environmental protection model city, what will be the situation if there is no place for nearly 1000 tons of domestic waste produced every day? Yesterday was the first day of the new year. Wang Shunsheng, deputy secretary of the municipal Party committee and mayor, Huo Rongyin, deputy mayor, and the heads of relevant municipal departments came to Lixi waste treatment plant, waste incineration power plant and the newly-built Xikengwei landfill to coordinate and deploy the construction of the new landfill.
It is reported that our city produces 1300 tons of domestic waste every day, including nearly 1000 tons in the urban area and more than 300 tons in the western area. At present, there are three waste disposal sites in our city: Lixi waste disposal site, Doumen Huangyangshan waste disposal site and waste incineration power plant in the urban area. Lixi landfill, located in the urban area, can be used for up to one and a half years; The waste incineration power plant with a daily treatment capacity of 600 tons has been operating at nearly full capacity; The Huangyangshan garbage dump located in Doumen will be difficult to meet the needs with the economic development and increasing population of the western district. The construction time of the new waste dump is at least 1-2 years. Therefore, the construction of Xikengwei waste treatment plant under planning is imminent.
Yesterday, Wang Shunsheng and his party made an on-site investigation on the waste treatment plant in the urban area of our city, and studied and discussed the construction of the planned Xikengwei waste treatment plant. Wang Shunsheng pointed out that the treatment of municipal solid waste in Zhuhai has become a very serious problem, which is related to the environmental protection of the city and the optimization of the investment environment, the development of the city and the vital interests of Zhuhai citizens. It is an important work of the government and must be highly valued by all relevant departments. All departments should pay close attention to this issue with great enthusiasm. First of all, we should have a good plan for the construction of waste disposal site, but the key is to implement it. At the same time, the planning of waste disposal sites in the western district should also be carried out quickly. While building a waste disposal site, we should start to consider how to consider waste disposal as an environmental protection industry as a whole, and gradually push it to the market when conditions are ripe. Wang Shunsheng also asked all departments to do a good job in the publicity of waste classification, called on the whole society to care about and support the environmental protection industry and improve citizens' awareness of environmental protection.
It is reported that the Xikengwei waste treatment plant to be built has been included in the national key project of the tenth five year plan by the State Environmental Protection Administration. At the same time, it is also the "popular project" of Guangdong Province. The total investment of the project is about 180 million yuan, with a total storage capacity of 9.5 million tons, which can be used for 18-20 years.
