TUYEN QUANG (VNS) — The northern province of Tuyen Quang plans to construct 20 solid-waste treatment systems by 2020 to safeguard local public health, use environmentally sound sanitation systems and encourage sustainable development.
The solid waste will be collected, sorted, recycled, and fully treated, using the facilities' advanced technology. This will help mitigate environmental pollution in the province, particularly in urban areas and industrial parks.
Local authorities also plan to issue policies to improve waste management in the field, launch campaigns to raise public awareness on the issue, and improve the capabilities of urban companies handling waste treatment by 2015. — VNS
