SHANGHAI, April 29 (Xinhua) -- Medical waste disposal has become a challenge for the Chinese megacity Shanghai, which has been battling against a new round of COVID-19 resurgence.
The output of Shanghai's household garbage, especially medical waste, has increased dramatically.
More than 100 special vehicles for medical waste have worked day and night to collect and transport medical waste and household garbage from quarantine sites to cope with the rising volume of epidemic-related waste disposal every day.
Large dump vehicles and loaders were used to improve the loading efficiency. The total collection and transportation capacity increased rapidly from 370 tons per day to 1,500 tons per day, more than four times as much as usual.
