According to report of HCMC People’s Committee, collection, transport and treatment rate of urban solid waste reached 100%, 100% for health care waste. Rate of health care waste water treatment stayed at 99,7%, far behind the planned target because 3 hospitals under the Central Government have not completed their wastewater treatment systems in accordance with environmental standards regardless of regular inspection or reminding by documents of HCMC and of relevant ministries and departments.
Wastewater treatment situation at industrial parks-export processing zone reached 100% as planned. 35/37 establishments completed pollution treatment thoroughly (95%), the rest of 2 establishments under the Central Government’s management need to solve the problem.
