HCMC – The government of Thua Thien-Hue Province in central Vietnam on March 28 approved a program to treat solid medical, domestic and commercial waste in the province. The VND1.9-trillion program will be carried out in two phases.

The first phase will require an estimated VND706 billion and start from now to the end of 2025. The second phase is slated to begin in 2026 and end in 2030, with a budget of more than VND1.2 trillion.

According to the program, domestic hazardous solid waste will be classified, collected, transported by special-use vehicles and processed separately.

It will also upgrade solid waste treatment plants in the province to reduce environmental pollution and close overloaded landfill sites.

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment’s 2019 data showed that Vietnam generated around 65,000 tons of domestic waste annually, with HCMC and Hanoi City accounting for 16,000 tons.
