640 1Beijing will soon enforce new trash sorting rules that may call for fines of 200 yuan to individuals who refuse to properly dispose of their waste, while giving restaurants and hotels up to 5,000 yuan if they provide disposable products to customers.

According to a draft amendment to its trash management regulations released on the Beijing government's website, residents will be required to sort their garbage and place it in specified collection containers or face a fine of up to 200 yuan.

030Companies and organizations could be fined from 10,000 to 50,000 yuan if they fail to follow the new regulations, according to the draft. The draft requires residents to sort their garbage into four classifications - kitchen waste, recyclable waste, hazardous waste and residual waste.

The draft requires restaurants, catering service providers and hotels not to automatically provide customers with disposable tableware or disposable household items, and can be fined from 1,000 to 5,000 yuan if they fail to follow the rules.

032Shanghai was the first Chinese city to enforce new trash sorting rules on July 1. The city's compliance rate of garbage classification in the residential areas has increased from 15 percent at the end of last year to 80 percent in the third quarter of 2019.
