Green Services

The medium-term goal set out in the “Waste Blueprint for Hong Kong 2035” is to gradually reduce the per capita MSW disposal rate by 40-45% and raise the recovery rate to about 55% by implementing Municipal Solid Waste Charging. To achieve this target, we have to make greater efforts in mobilising the entire community to practise waste reduction and implement measures for achieving waste reduction and recycling on a considerably larger scale. Event organisers should donate or recycle the surplus materials as far as practicable to reduce waste generation.

Planning large-scale events requires a comprehensive and detailed waste management plan to reduce waste generation and collect useful materials for reuse, recycling or upcycling. Event planners can contact and arrange for the suppliers/social enterprises/charities to implement relevant waste reduction measures before, during and after the event. For details, please refer to the following information (names are in no particular order):

During the Event

Event planners can contact suppliers to arrange for the provision of waste separation facilities for recycling recyclable materials during the event so as to increase the recycling quantity.

 

 

After the Event

Event planners can contact recyclers/recycling institutions and social enterprises to arrange for donation,reusing and upcycling/recycling of materials after the event.

 

 

(I) Recyclers

Individuals and organisations who are interested in promoting and organising materials recovery and recycling programmes can look for suitable recyclers in the “Hong Kong Collector/ Recycler Directory” for collecting recyclables such as food waste, glass bottles, wood, waste paper, metals, plastics and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) banners for reuse, upcycling/recycling. For details, please refer to the “Hong Kong Collector/Recycler Directory”.

Regarding the leftovers, event planners can donate the food to the recycling institutions. In addition, if the event is a running race/marathon, the organiser can donate the surplus running T-shirts.

 

 

(II) Social Enterprises

The Government is committed to promoting the development of social enterprises (SEs) to create employment opportunities for the disadvantaged to help them to be self-reliant. It provides a new channel for people from different sectors and organisations to meet the needs of different community groups with innovative approaches, with a view to fostering a new caring culture and enhancing social harmony. The table below shows the social enterprises which are engaged in recycling and second-hand store businesses and interested in receiving donations of materials. Event planners can contact suppliers/social enterprises/charities to arrange for donation, reusing or recycling of the materials after the event. For details, please refer to the information on SEs.
