About 92.2 percent of Chinese people consider trash sorting important to protect the environment, while only over 30 percent of respondents said they were doing "pretty good", or "relatively well" in sorting the trash, as per a recent survey by the Ministry of Ecology and Environment.

According to a government's plan, all major cities in China are expected to initiate garbage classification this year, and the system should be completed and functioning by the end of 2025.

With the help of effective supervision and guidance, a growing number of people will cultivate the good habit of garbage classification and take action to improve their living environment, contributing to a green and sustainable society.
