Vấn đề rác đô thị vẫn phụ thuộc vào sức chịu đựng của những “chị lao công như sắt như đồng” mà Tố Hữu mô tả 60 năm trước.
Anh Minh sống ở Hà Nội đã 10 năm, nhưng vẫn chưa nói sõi tiếng Kinh.
Công việc chính của Minh không cho anh nhiều cơ hội để học tiếng Kinh: anh là một công nhân dọn rác dưới hầm chung cư. Ngăn cách giữa người đàn ông dân tộc Tày và đời sống xã hội là những tấm bê tông dày trên đầu. Kết nối đáng kể nhất giữa anh và những cư dân thành phố này là một chiếc ống rác thông tầng. Người ta ném rác vào ống, Minh thu dọn ở phía dưới, cho lên xe và đẩy đi.
Anh Minh trong xóm trọ tại Trung Văn, Hà Nội Continue reading “Rác đô thị Việt Nam – 60 năm trông chờ ‘tiếng chổi tre’”

In the first weeks of 2018 there were (for me) unexpected announcements from both the EU and the UK Government on the urgent global issue of ocean plastic pollution. The EU intends to make all plastic packaging on the European market recyclable by 2030 and in her speech announcing the UK’s 25 Year Environment Plan, Prime Minister Theresa May committed the UK to eliminating all “avoidable plastic waste” by 2042. The Prime Minister also said it would direct UK aid to help developing nations reduce plastic waste, which could indicate a new direction for the UK’s and other countries’ aid programmes.

scidev.net_[NEW DELHI] Humans generated a staggering 44.7 million metric tonnes of electronic waste (e-waste) in 2016 — the equivalent of 4,500 Eiffel Towers, and five per cent more than the electrical and electronic goods discarded just two years earlier, says a new study.
The trend is set to continue, with volumes of e-waste expected to rise to 52.2 million metric tonnes by 2021. Continue reading “Forty per cent of global e-waste comes from Asia”
The volume of discarded electronics in East and South-East Asia jumped almost two-thirds between 2010 and 2015, and e-waste generation is growing fast in both total volume and per capita measures, new UNU research shows.
Driven by rising incomes and high demand for new gadgets and appliances, the average increase in e-waste across all 12 countries and areas analysed — Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Province of China, Thailand and Vietnam — was 63% in the five years ending in 2015 and totalled 12.3 million tonnes, a weight 2.4 times that of the Great Pyramid of Giza.
China alone more than doubled its generation of e-waste between 2010 and 2015 to 6.7 million tonnes, up 107%. Continue reading “E-Waste in East and South-East Asia Jumps 63% in Five Years”
