A take-away food, which contains in the general packaging materials? Reporters asked a network platform ordering takeout food that in addition to two or three plastic lunch boxes, one to two layers of plastic bags, there will be disposable chopsticks, plastic spoons, plastic and other soup cup. Chinese Association of renewable resources recycling plastics Branch Secretary Sheng Min explained that this material itself does have a recovery value, but the recovery price is not high. Currently, main material of lunch boxes with transparent plastic material of high quality is using pure polypropylene (PP), the recycle price is just 2,3 RMB per kilogram. At the same time, as using of a take-away cutlery, it has been basically unable to enter the recovery chain.
Sheng Min introduced, because it is installed after the restaurant food (contaminated) are generally not recycled into the system, as there will be with oil, soup, rice, these attachments which can only enter the waste disposal system. (Recovery situation) either scavengers or recycling business, he usually only choose such a relatively simple type of product like Coke bottle, so lunch boxes cannot be recycled.
Installed with food lunch boxes must not be recovered yet? Sheng Min said, if we can be clean enough and strict separation and recovery, it is possible. For example, in Japan, for the front-end processing takeaway plastic lunch boxes, are borne by the ordering person. They have to clean the boxes after using and then sent to designated collection points. And now, hundreds of one million domestic take-away meals are difficult to complete the above requirements in a short time each day, but also a lack of specialized enterprises engaged in the front end of the recovery work.
Thirteen Five "Plan has made that it will restrict the use of disposable supplies, sound renewable resource recycling network, strengthen the interface garbage classification and recycling of renewable resources recovery. Some places have begun to try to recycle the new garbage classification recycling site Director of publicity Department of Hefei urban Management Bureau Li Dayong said that this year in March (beginning) they have done recycle and classification of plastic waste. And they will initiate the people who is classifying and recycling .In this way, we want to effectively utilize the actually misplaced resources. Enterprises should accelerate the pace of polystyrene recycling to deal with the polystyrene lunch boxes.
