Door-to-door fast food delivery service has become increasingly popular in cities due to the fast development of e-commerce and the fast-paced life in China. This in turn has resulted in significant environmental concerns for the waste packaging materials. We have therefore estimated and predicted the volume and composition of food delivery packaging waste in China. The results show that the total amount of packaging waste surged from 0.2 million metric tons in 2015 to 1.5 million metric tons in 2017. Accordingly, we have provided several policy suggestions to tackle this pressing issues, particularly using the Reduce, Reuse and Recycle environmental friendly practices.
