Waste Recycling

Waste management is an important social issue. Facing thousand tonnes of solid waste treatment per day, all three strategic landfills in Hong Kong are nearly saturated. Despite of landfilling, we promote the 5Rs principle of recycling in order to reduce waste at source.

It is advisable to draw lessons from the strategies of Taiwan and the UK. Restriction on disposable goods, offering economic incentives are some ways to advocate recycling and reducing waste at source. This helps alleviate resource depletion and pressure of landfills.
