2022 Peach Blossom Trees Recycling Programme

2022 Peach Blossom Trees Recycling Programme Poster

The Environmental Protection Department (EPD) will collect peach blossom trees (PBTs) at designated locations after Lunar New Year holiday this year and recycle suitable PBTs collected into various recyclable products via Y‧PARK contractor in order to promote recycling of yard waste in the community and reduce yard waste disposal at landfills. Members of the public can also join “GREEN$ Electronic Participation Incentive Scheme” after recycling of PBTs. Details of the Programme are as follows:

Collection Period: 7 to 14 February 2022 (total 8 days)

Collection Points: A central collection point (CCP) at Y‧PARK, Tsang Tsui, Tuen Mun and 54 district collection points (DCPs) distributed over the territory. Please refer to the Annex and the following location map for details.

Members of the public can deliver their PBTs to CCP or DCPs within the opening hours, while the commercial and industrial (C&I) organisations can only deliver their PBTs direct to CCP. If members of the public and C&I organisations need to recycle PBTs from 15 to 21 February 2022, please deliver the PBTs to CCP within operation hour (9:00a.m.- 6:00p.m., Monday to Saturday, except public holidays). Please note that DCPs will neither receive PBTs heighted above 2 metres nor from C&I organisations.

An e-certificate will be issued to the participants who deliver PBTs to CCP or Recycling Stations for recycling. The participants will also receive a gift for delivering PBTs to Recycling Stations while stock lasts.

GREEN$ Electronic Participation Incentive Scheme

Besides, there is still collaboration between PBTs Recycling Programme and “GREEN$ Electronic Participation Incentive Scheme” this year. Participants who recycle PBTs at Recycling Stations within the collection period can register to become a GREEN$ member after which the member can earn GREEN$ for redemption of gift items upon submission of recyclables. For details of the “GREEN$ Electronic Participation Incentive Scheme”, please visit Hong Kong Waste Reduction Website at www.wastereduction.gov.hk/en/community/crn_intro.htm.

Recycling Tips

  1. The programme is limited to PBTs only. We encourage members of the public to replant other small potted plants such as tangerine trees and keep festival decorations for reuse to help reduce waste and conserve resources.
  2. Prior to delivery of PBTs, please remove all decorations, fai-chun and tapes etc. to facilitate subsequent recycling processes.
