With the gradual improvement of China’s economic development, residents’ household garbage increase with rapid growth, which not only endangers the environment and people’s health, but also poses a major threat to the social and economic development. The management of “garbage besieged city” is urgent, and it is the premise to deal with the problem of “garbage besieged city” to conduct household garbage classification and recycling. Garbage classification and recycling is a specific operation to improve the efficiency of resource utilization. It not only effectively improves the environmental quality, but also conforms to the concept of circular economy and realizes sustainable development. The classification and recycling of household garbage is a comprehensive interdisciplinary subject, which must combine the theoretical knowledge and practical experience in multiple fields. As a famous tourist city and Yangtze river delta center city, Hangzhou actively works on household garbage classification and explores the point system with innovation, which can stimulate the enthusiasm of the residents and set up the awareness of garbage classification, in order to promote the development of circular economy and to achieve the goals of sustainable development at last. The paper chooses this proposition to explore the significance of the point system of garbage classification and recycling in Chinese cities.
