Tired of noise complaints, the Nanning Dream Team ditched the speakers and added individual headsets to make sure they上海千花坊品茶微信

In a city square in Nanning, South China’s Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, nearly 100 seniors concentrated on

following the moves of their dance leader while wearing headsets to listen to the music.上海千花坊

Many passersby did a double take when they saw the dance team go through a rout

上海千花坊品茶微信ine, seemingly without any audible music blaring from loudspeakers.

When asked why they dance in this way, they said they had no other choice

.– The area where they dance is between two close residential buildings, so noise e

choed and disturbed nearby residents. Surrounding merchants and residents used to complain about the noise they m上海千花坊

ade. Some even splashed water or threw items from the upstairs floors of buildings close by.

The team leader, surnamed Yang, said the dancers didn’t want to annoy上海千花坊品茶微信

the neighbors, and that’s why she suggested the group dance with headsets.

This perfect solution has ended complaints, simply via a small tran上海千花坊

smitter which can set channels and transmit the signals, creating the music all the dancers listen to simultaneously.

“I bought the device at my own expense, while our dancers pay for their own head上海千花坊品茶微信

sets,” Yang said. “Dancers can adjust the volume of their wireless headset and select stereo mode, which is ve

ry beneficial for us to enjoy dancing and not disturb others anymore. What a win-win solution!”

ntering a new era, Shanghai encountered unprecedented opportunities

上海千花坊in domestic garbage treatment, reflected in three later-developing advantages.

(1) Shanghai has the advantage of “overtaking in bends”

上海千花坊女神会所Four first-tier cities across the world established modern garbage classification systems about 50 years ago.

These systems were first carried out from the perspective of the circular economy. Shangh

ai, as a catcher, started to classify and recycle municipal garbage through comprehensive integration.上海千花坊

Today garbage in Shanghai is classified into four categories: harmful; recyclable; organic; and other.

上海千花坊女神会所This integrates waste recycling, composting, incineration and landfills, and has the advantage of overtaking in be

nds. Shanghai for example provides a fixed subsidy for the construction of wet garbage resource facilities.

(2) Shanghai has the advantage of “backward force”上海千花坊女神会所

Shanghai’s waste treatment sets the maximum capacity of landfill and incineration fa

上海千花坊cilities, reverses the front-end classification collection and resource utilization, and reduces quantity at the source.

The city encourages classification by disposing

of organic garbage for free and calculating the cost of other garbage disposal.上海千花坊女神会所

Shanghai also promotes quality control and both rewards and

上海千花坊punishes district treatment facilities through its garbage treatment fee system.

(3) Shanghai has the advantage of “governance orientation”上海千花坊女神会所

Shanghai residents participate in making waste classification a bottom-up action.
