HCM CITY — HCM City has set a goal of ensuring all supermarkets, commercial centres, convenience stores and bookstores use eco-friendly packaging by the end of 2020.

The city also said market stalls needed to cut the use of plastic bags by 50 per cent this year.

The city's People's Committee said it wanted to provide information services for all residents about the importance of protecting the environment, while making them foot the bill for collecting, transporting and treating solid waste by the end of this year.

By 2020, the city wants at least 50 per cent of rubbish to be classified to facilitate recycling, while 50 per cent of solid waste should be treated by hygienic landfill technology. — VNS
