The 2022 Garbage Sorting Index evaluation covered a total of 100 cities. The average score is only 15.07, with more than half of the cities scoring below 10, indicating that garbage sorting is still at a low level. The evaluation shows that the three key measures required by the 14th Five-Year Period Urban Domestic Waste Separation and Disposal Facilities Development Plan, namely "removing bins and building stations, regular drop-off, and supervision and guidance", have not yet been effectively implemented in most cities. There remains a lack of capability in food waste treatment yet at the same time, there is more capacity than the amount of food waste treatable. Garbage incineration capacity has shown signs of surplus in many regions.
