Green Service

“Hong Kong: Blueprint for Sustainable Use of Resources 2013-2022” sets out the target to reduce the per capita disposal rate of municipal solid waste by 40% by 2022. To achieve this target, members of the public should make concerted efforts to embrace the new green culture of “Use Less, Waste Less” and treasure the invaluable resources on earth. 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):
