Community Green Stations

Eastern CGS

In May 2013, the Environment Bureau published “Hong Kong Blueprint for Sustainable Use of Resources 2013–2022” (“The Blueprint”) setting out the target to reduce the per capita disposal rate of municipal solid waste (MSW) by 40% by 2022. To achieve this target, Hong Kong people should make concerted efforts to put the new green culture of “Use Less, Waste Less” into practice and treasure the resources on earth. The government will develop a Community Green Station (CGS) in each of the 18 districts, which will be operated by non-profit-making organisations to enhance environmental education and help collect different types of recyclables (especially those of low economic value recyclables including electrical appliances, computers, glass beverage bottles, compact fluorescent lamps and tubes, rechargeable batteries, etc.) in the local community, with a view to promoting green living at the community level. This is to, on the one hand encourage more public participation in waste reduction and recovery to increase the quantity of materials recovered and, on the other hand, promote the “Recycle Clean” concept to enhance both quality and quantity of the recyclables collected.
