    An average person in Hong Kong disposes of about 1.3 kilograms of waste a day. As a city, that is over 9,000 tonnes- every day. Can we Use Less and Waste Less? The HKSAR Government has set a target to reduce our waste volume drastically. It will rely on a sustainable waste management system and a rigorous strategy to achieve that target. We need to reduce, reuse, and recycle. For example, we have to reduce food waste. Whether as groups or as individuals, all of us need to take action and change our behaviors in order to make a difference. We will also strengthen recycling programmes and work to make this a habit for everyone. Our Community Green Stations are hubs for clean recycling and environmental education.

According to the Environmental Protection Department, about 3,300 tonnes of food is thrown away daily. That means each person on average wastes about half-a-kilogram a day. Because food waste is non-recycable, it is dumped into our rapidly filling landfills. Along with the 9,300 tonnes of municipal rubbish produced every day, the city's landfills could reach capacity as soon as 2013. The government plans to build more incinerators but is facing opposition due to its hazardous effects.

  • A waste-to-energy journey in Hong Kong

    Hong Kong produces approximately 1,200 tonnes of sludge daily. “Sludge” is a term used to describe the semi-solid by-product of sewage treatment. Previous to the opening of the T Park sludge treatment facility located at Tsang Tsui near Tuen Mun, Hong Kong only had 11 sewage treatment works, with sewage treatment byproduct going directly to landfill. T Park’s advanced sludge incinerators help reduce the sludge by 90% thereby disposing only 10% of the remaining sludge into the adjacent West New Territories landfill.

Up to 99% of local solid waste that is recycled is then exported for further processing overseas. The problem is even worse than usual this year as torrential rainstorms have led to Hong Kong’s beaches being inundated with marine waste from the mainland. And then there’s the issue of electronic or e-waste, not all of which is our own. Also with us to talk about these issues is Christine Loh, acting Secretary for the Environment.

We will build more to have one in each of the 18 districts. We will advocate for a shared responsibility of handling post-consuming products and establish treatment facilities to properly recycle precious resources. By creating economic incentives, we can further reduce waste at its source. For instance, we will count on everyone to help and participate in waste charging programs. Separately, we will also help the recycling industry upgrade and expand their operations. Our goal is to minimize the use of landfills and turn waste into a resource. Using advanced technologies, we can reduce the volume of waste and generate energy. A brand-new waste-to-energy facility has been generating energy since April 2015. There will be more similar facilities to come. So when we Use Less and Waste Less, we can actually do more. With your participation, we can build a more sustainable Hong Kong.

A room is stocked full of flammable pellets used for heating and mounds of mulched wood litter the grounds of the first and only wood recycle company in Hong Kong.

Wong, 25, said currently the company has suspended operations for two months because "there is little space for the newly-arrived wood waste." "The space is being filled up with wood pellets" Wong said. "Few people in Hong Kong want to buy those wood pellets." Fees to transport the recycled pellets out of Hong Kong are too expensive, Wong said. To cut the company's budget, Wong reduced his workforce to 10 employees. Although the company has been losing HK$50,000 per month since he took over a little more than three years ago, Wong said he still strongly believes in wood recycling and hopes the city's government won't let his business eventually rot away.
