"The market has filled the gap in Tibet in recycling renewable resources to change the current situation," said Zhai Xincheng, Secretary General of Tibet resource recycling association.

Currently, Tibet generates 350,000 tons of renewable waste and recycles only 200,000 tons annually, while most waste generated in Tibet is transported to other regions and recycled there, a news agency reported.

"Inadequate and disordered recycling in Tibet has seriously affected the urban environment," Zhai said.

According to Li Zhiqing, manager general of a local recycling company, with a total investment of USD 8.16 million, the market is designed to recycle 200,000 tons of resources annually, which includes metal, plastic and paper.

Li said that the recycling would be done in an enclosed warehouse to avoid secondary pollution.
