The Environmental Protection Department (EPD) launched the territory-wide waste paper collection and recycling services programme for the first time by engaging contractors through service contracts to collect waste paper (including cardboards, newspapers and office papers) from the street corner recycling shops/ mobile recyclers/ frontline collectors across the territory for further processing. After collecting the waste paper, the contractors would carry out processing work, including screening, sorting and baling, etc. locally, and then delivering the waste paper to various markets for recycling into paper products, thus turning waste into resources. We hope that this service programme could maintain or even enhance the quantity, quality and value of local waste paper, promote the sustainable development of local waste paper recycling industry and act in concert with the green recovery in Hong Kong, support the circular economy and relevant employment opportunities as well.
Through open tendering exercise, we have engaged 17 contractors under service contracts (see the list below). The contractors have commenced the services progressively from September 2020.
The contractors and associated partners (including street corner recycling shops and mobile recyclers, etc.) are required under the contracts to provide economic incentives during the Service Period to purchase waste paper that meets the specified quality standard, i.e. not contaminated by water, other impurities and waste, etc., from frontline collectors and other waste paper producers at a price which is not less than the designated recovery price of waste paper (the price will be adjusted regularly according to the actual selling price of waste paper in the market). We hope these contracts could encourage clean recycling and enhance the overall quality and market competitiveness of local waste paper, thereby providing support to the entire waste paper recycling industry with stabilisation of employment opportunities in the industry, including frontline collectors. For enquiries about the Incentive Scheme, please call EPD’s designated hotline at 2872 1818.
