Plastic Recycling Pilot Scheme

In order to process waste plastics more cost-effectively and raise public confidence in the waste separation and recycling system, the Environmental Protection Department is rolling out a 2-year Pilot Scheme in three different districts (i.e. Eastern District, Kwun Tong and Sha Tin), through which contractors are engaged under service contracts to provide free collection of waste plastics from registered premises for non-commercial and non-industrial sources such as public and private housing estates, schools and public institutions, Community Recycling Centres and GREEN‌@COMMUNITY in the districts, and further process the plastics collected into plastic raw materials or recycled plastic products to ensure that the waste plastics collected are properly handled.

Services under the Pilot Scheme in Eastern District, Kwun Tong and Sha Tin Districts have progressively commenced. Further information of Plastic Recycling Pilot Scheme is available at the Pilot Scheme page.
