Japan helps Hoi An deal with garbage

Tuesday - 28/08/2012 09:47

Authorities in the central province of Quang Nam, city of Hoi An and the Japanese city of Naha, on August 25 signed an agreement on applying the latter’s model of reducing and managing waste for the future.

The agreement, funded by the Okinawa Citizens’ Recycling Movement, is part of the framework of the ongoing Hoi An-Japan cultural exchange.

The Japanese side will dispatch a group of Japanese experts to Hoi An to conduct surveys, hold a seminar and receive Vietnamese trainees who will learn about waste recycling, treatment and management process in Japan. 

Hoi An is finding it difficult to deal with solid waste, including poor public awareness on separating the different types and a lack of land to build suitable disposal grounds. 

So far, the locality and relevant agencies have completed the classification of waste for the precincts of Minh An, Son Pho, Tan An and Cam Pho. A waste treatment plant using bio-technology is also due to commence operation in the Cam Ha commune in the near future.
