Officials gave the cafe two days to fix its infractions or face a fine.

The chain should install four bins for different types of waste and sort its garbage accordingly, officials said.Wednesday also marked the establishment of the city's first comprehensive urban management and law enforcement working station, which is located in Meilong area. The station is meant to enhance community management and raise enforcement efficiency. The station covers 10 villages, 20 residential complexes and several business areas.

"Meilong Town is big, covering 28 square kilometers, and such stations significantly cut the distance for inspections, allowing officials to arrive at the scene as quickly as possible after receiving complaints and tips-off," said Yang Yifan, a member of the Meilong Town urban management and law enforcement team.The station will collect public opinions, solve complaints and promote garbage sorting. Such stations will be established at more residential communities citywide, said Yan Yongkang, deputy director of the Shanghai Urban Management and Law Enforcement Bureau. The stations will also tackle irregularities related to unauthorized structures in apartment blocks and damage to load-bearing walls.
