Suggestions of the Office of Wuxi Municipal People's Government on the Management of the Recycling of Urban Construction Waste(Trial)

 

Xi Zheng Ban Fa [2012] No. 35

 

Municipal and district people's governments, municipal committees, municipal departments and their subordinate units,

 

With the rapid development of our economy and urbanization in the recent years, an increasing number of construction waste is produced by urban reconstruction and infrastructure construction. (Construction Waste means the spoil, the rejected materials and other waste produced by new construction, reconstruction, extension, maintenance, decoration and dismantlement of all kinds of buildings, structure and pipe network.) The traditional way of landfill not only takes up a lot of land but also pollutes urban environment and somehow impacts the water quality of surface water and deep water. Recycling of construction waste is an inevitable requirement for establishing a resource-saving and environment-friendly society. It is of great significance for reduction of land use, purification of urban environment, resources save, energy conservation and emission reduction and recycling economy in construction materials industry. In order to carry out the requirements of municipal committee and government establishing ecological civilized pioneer city, to strengthen management of the recycling of construction waste, to impel the resource utilization of construction waste, the following suggestions are put forward to promote further recycling of the whole urban construction waste.

 

1. Guiding Ideology

 

Guided by Scientific Concept of Development, according to Recycling Economy Development Idea, we shall stick to the following principles: overall planning, policy guidance, enterprise operations and standard management. The aim is to improve the utilization of recycling of construction waste. Take full advantage of the support and the guidance from our government. We shall realize the bio-safety disposal, the reduction, the recycling and the industrialization of construction waste, in order to establish a resource-saving and environment-friendly society.

 

2. Target Tasks

 

We shall construct departmental coordinating and cooperating mechanism, implement supporting policy considering the supply , market access and the recycling, etc. We shall lead the enterprise to accelerate the progress of recycling the construction waste. The recycling rate was over 20% by 2015 and is increasing by years. We have gained achievements in land saving, proper place for construction waste and pollution abatement.

 

3. Work Demands

Departments at all levels shall list this work into schedule, take their responsibilities and have a greater sense of urgency to work out effective measures to promote a smooth development of the recycling, so that we can realize the promoted harmonious development of economic benefit, social benefit and ecological benefit.

 

Recycling of the construction waste takes advantage of the mode of operation of market-oriented operation and standardized management.

 

We shall implement the routine management of basic construction. The implementation plan for recycling of construction waste shall be made in the feasibility study report or project application report. The environmental impact assessment report (sheet) of construction project should clear and definite the disposal of construction waste. The related department shall not handle relevant licensing procedures of those that don't meet the requirement.

Any bid that does not manage the removal of construction waste, or will pollute environment, shall be treated as failed bidding.

 

After demolition bidding, demolition tendering units (demolition salvage charging units) shall give part of demolition salvages to related municipal department as the earnest of recycling own construction waste and standardized engineering. The standard of payment shall be in line with the specifications of related department. The earnest will be returned in proportion after transporting produced construction wastes to appointed sites or recycling enterprises.

 

(7) Construction wastes produced by construction, reconstruction or extension of various kinds of architectures or pipe networks shall be disposed in a recycling way by construction units. Any unit without standard disposal procedures shall be punished by municipal construction department, city administration department or other departments according to related specifications.
