To strengthen on-site recycling support at community level, the EPD set up the Green Outreach to provide outreaching services at the territory. Through on-site guidance and hands-on demonstrations, the Green Outreach regularly educates the public about the importance of waste reduction at source, encourages and facilitates the pubic to practice source separation of waste and clean recycling, promotes GREEN@COMMUNITY services, and disseminates the latest information on waste management. The Green Outreach also assists housing estates/residential buildings under the "Programme on Source Separation of Waste" to improve their recycling practices, and to arrange trainings for property management staff and frontline cleansing workers on proper handling of recyclables. In addition, the Green Outreach also conducts promotional and educational activities on waste reduction and clean recycling in the community, in order to encourage the public to incorporate source separation of waste and clean recycling in their daily lives. To facilitate the implementation of Municipal Solid Waste Charging (MSW charging), the Green Outreach has further strengthened the promotion of MSW charging from August 2023 by providing support on waste reduction and recycling in the community, deepening public's understanding on MSW charging through promotional activities and on-site demonstrations at various locations, educating the public and frontline staff of housing estates/ residential buildings to comply with the legislative requirements, and actively practicing waste reduction and recycling to prepare for the implementation of MSW charging.
