Plastic Resources Recycling Centre (Not in operation)
Plastic Resources Recycling Centre
Plastic Resources Recycling Centre (PRRC) Project Concluded Successfully at the end of 2016.
The PRRC, located at the EcoPark in TuenMun, was commenced in 2010 and had been operated and managed by a non-governmental organization (NGO), Yan Oi Tong (YOT), under the funding support of Environment and Conservation Fund (ECF). The PRRC aimed to conduct public education and promote recycling through on-site demonstration of turning waste plastics into reusable materials. It also assisted the local community to establish a stable recycling network for waste plastics to alleviate pressure on landfills.
The PRRC project was concluded successfully at the end of 2016. The promotional role of the PRRC will be shared by the GREEN@COMMUNITY and projects funded by the ECF and the Government, including the Community Recycling Centres. And the collection and handling of waste plastics will be taken up by the existing community network through market mechanisms.
