DAXING DISTRICT IN BEIJING has established a disposal and recycling system for construction waste, which could be promoted nationwide to protect the environment and increase the reutilization rate of resources. Beijing Youth Daily comments:

To avoid the random dumping or piling up of construction garbage, Daxing district in Beijing has been exploring a disposal and recycling system for construction waste over the last year. It has built one fixed and 27 temporary construction waste disposal and recycling sites. Since these facilities were introduced, the district has produced 47.88 million tons of recycled materials, and 43,52 million tons of them have been sold. The utilization rate of the recycled materials is as high as 90.89 percent, which has effectively helped protect the environment and saved resources.

Some buildings in China have a relatively short life span, which results in repeated construction and huge amounts of construction waste. Statistics show that every year China's construction industry accounts for half of the total global consumption of steel and concrete, and it produces 1.8 billion tons of construction waste.
