Environmental protection is inseparable from the proper disposal of waste. The UK is a country with a strict waste classification system. Living here means doing it properly. In China, many

英国的垃圾回收系统

做好垃圾分类回收,为了自己,为了他人,为了社会,为了地球。   环境保护,离不开妥善处理生活垃圾。英国是一个垃圾分类制度严格、循环利用程度很高的国家。在英国生活,熟知怎么扔垃圾是一门必备的生活技能。 在中国,由于很多住宅区都设立了公共垃圾回收点,所以居民每天下楼的时候把垃圾丢进公共垃圾回收点就好了。但是,在英国是没有公共垃圾回收点的。通常,英国人的家门口都会有几个大垃圾箱,居民需要把垃圾分好类丢进特定的垃圾桶里,再等专门的工作人员定期来收走垃圾。 我刚刚住进公寓的时候得到了当地政府部门给我发放的一些食物垃圾塑料袋(food waste bag)和小回收桶(kitchen caddy),从这些地方就可以看出英国对于垃圾分类十分用心。英国的垃圾分类系统真的非常棒,一般放在家门口的垃圾桶分别是绿色,蓝色和棕色,每个颜色的垃圾桶都用来装不一样种类的垃圾。 绿色垃圾桶用于回收各种食物垃圾,除了日常的厨余垃圾,茶包和咖啡的残渣也必须丢进这个绿色的垃圾桶里。你可以往绿色垃圾桶里扔任何生、熟、过期的食物,但是扔到回收桶里之前一定要去除掉包装才行。 蓝色垃圾桶用于回收纸类垃圾,像纸板、纸箱等,直接扔进蓝色垃圾箱即可,不需要放入塑料袋内再扔。棕色垃圾桶则用于回收玻璃瓶、易拉罐和塑料瓶等。这些包装盒垃圾在丢进垃圾桶之前,一定要把里边的食物倒干净,最好用水冲一下,再放到回收桶里。 相比之下,尽管中国很多城市的马路边上、小区里的垃圾桶都分成了可回收和不可回收两个垃圾桶,但是还有不少市民做不到分类投放垃圾。 以上说的都是些小型的垃圾,对于大型垃圾包括各种废弃的家具、电器、建筑材料等就要直接送到当地的大型垃圾处理中心了。 英国的垃圾回收系统非常严格,如果不好好分类,垃圾有可能会被拒收或者被邻居投诉。我刚到英国的时候还不太了解英国的垃圾分类,也不怎么关心这个问题,于是就遇到了垃圾被拒收的情况。 那是在某个收垃圾日的第二天,我去街边想把拖出去的垃圾桶放回家门口——拉的时候明显感觉垃圾桶非常重。掀开盖子一看,才发现所有垃圾都原封不动地待在桶里。咨询了才知道是因为我丢的包装盒上面还留了一点食物残渣。 拒收垃圾的后果非常严重。因为英国每个地区回收垃圾的时间和频率都有所不同。我住在考文垂,这边收垃圾的工作人员两周才来收一次垃圾,相当于一个月才来收两次垃圾。如果被拒收垃圾,垃圾桶就不能被清空,一下就会被塞满。最后,有新的垃圾只好堆在家门口,对房子的环境也有影响。错过了这一次收垃圾的机会的话,就等于接下来的两个星期都要被一堆垃圾包围了!冬天还好,到了夏天,垃圾放的太久,味道真的很刺激。所以,为了你自己和他人的生活环境和生活质量,一定要认真进行垃圾分类。 虽然我没有遇到过因为垃圾分类问题被罚款的情况,但是我有听说过有学生因为垃圾没有准确分类被罚了大概300镑(人民币约2700元),真的是非常严格了。相比之下,尽管中国很多城市的马路边上、小区里的垃圾桶都分成了可回收和不可回收两个垃圾桶,但是还有不少市民做不到分类投放垃圾。分类垃圾桶几乎形同虚设。究其原因,无非是市民们的参与性不强,环保意识和垃圾分类知识相对薄弱,缺乏践行的积极性、主动性。 不管在英国还是中国,希望大家都努力做好垃圾分类回收,保护环境,人人有责。相信,随着我们环保意识的不断增强,中国的垃圾分类回收利用的效率也会越来越高。垃圾分类不是小事,需要循序渐进,也需要社会各方共同努力,以切实改变我们的生存环境。 Read in English
