June 29,2020 -- Lhasa, capital of the Tibet autonomous region, has been continuing its efforts on garbage sorting and sorting quality, with the city's waste incineration rate hitting more than 80 percent in the first half of the year, according to the city's environment sanitation and protection authorities.
The city's waste collection, transportation, disposal system, Waste-to-Energy Plant, landfill, waste transfer and treatment systems are all operating normally.
By the end of July, the city will ensure its 348 residential communities are covered by waste sorting treatment facilities and dustbins.
In addition, all the city's government institutes will be covered by waste sorting treatment facilities, and most schools, hospitals and township governments will be provided with waste sorting treatment services. 
For harmful waste disposal, the city has entrusted qualified professional companies to transport and treat the waste harmlessly at the region's designated treatment center for hazardous waste.
The city also plans to make a survey of trash-recycling capacity in urban towns to improve recycling and utility rates, including plastic bags, paper, cans, used electronic appliances and discarded glass.
In addition, the city is in the process of constructing a kitchen waste disposal plant. The plant's support facilities are all set and it is expected to be put into service by September.
