The volume-rate garbage disposal system, which was implemented nationwide in 1995, was aimed at achieving 100% level of self-reliance on waste disposal costs by 2001 but due to a national economic financial crisis IMF in 1997, it was repressed to suppress increasing cost of utilities and resolve the inconveniences in the lives of people, then in order to solve the problem of poor local finances due to the chronic deficit in waste disposal costs, the price of government issue waste bags was increased to raise self-reliance from 35% to 47.4% in November 2000, but it is still far off from 100% reliance on causing persons.
