BEIJING -- The Palace Museum is becoming waste-free as the 720,000-square-meter structure has managed to reduce the number of trash bins to 110 sets in areas open to the public.

It is a decrease from 310 sets logged in January 2020, when a zero-waste campaign was launched, said the museum.

While protecting features of the six-century-old historical relic, the action also helps visitors and tourists get into the habit of creating less waste, said the museum.
