In 2008, the per capita disposal rate of municipal solid waste was as high as 1.35 kilograms per day. Especially when people can afford greater convenience and more purchases tend to throw away more rubbish. Among the local waste, some of them are recyclable materials so that a proper waste management can turn the waste into gold through the waste-to-energy incinerator technology and also reducing, reusing and recycling.
