Sanya takes measures to tackle air pollution
Sanya will take measures to control and reduce air pollution this year, according to reports.
Construction companies in Sanya will need to keep a close eye on emissions of dust and other forms of pollution at their existing construction sites if they want to bid on new projects, according to a city government official.
Control should also be tightened over all existing building sites, which are requested to reduce dust pollution during construction. Those who fail to meet the standards of environmental protection will be punished by related departments and risk being closed down.
Meanwhile, Sanya announced comprehensive restrictions on burning of household waste in order to curb air pollution in the city. All household waste is required to be processed at garbage treatment plants.
Also, outdoor BBQ’s will be strictly limited in urban areas.
