Forum on Source Separation of C&I Waste cum Certificates Presentation Ceremony 2008

Program on Source Separation of Commercial and Industrial Waste

The Forum on Source Separation of Commercial and Industrial (C&I) Waste, together with a Certificate Presentation Ceremony, was held by the Environmental Protection Department (EPD) on 20 Feb 2008, receiving an encouraging response from over 200 participants.

The Source Separation Programme for C&I waste was launched in Oct 2007, aiming to recruit C&I buildings with "source separation" mechanisms in place that enable the tenants or occupants to take part in waste recovery and recycling in their workplace. As at Jan 2008, some 350 C&I buildings, including commercial and government office buildings, shopping arcades, industrial buildings, warehouses and car-parks, had signed up to the programme. The initial results were encouraging.
