To enhance the public awareness in the recycling of computers and communication products, EPD has launched a Helpdesk with Hotline (5575 4068).  Service Hours: 8:30 am – 6:30 pm, Monday to Friday.  We operate the Hotline and help the public if they would like to recycle computers and communication products.  Property management / representatives of housing estates and buildings interested to participate in the Computer and Communication Products Recycling Programme are welcome to call the Hotline to enquire for more information and register.

 

 

Introduction

 

Launched in January 2008, The Computer & Communication Products Recycling Programme (CCRP) is the second voluntary Producer Responsibility Scheme in Hong Kong. It has been set up and funded by the computer trade to provide a mean for the public to manage their used computer equipment and communication products in an environmentally sound manner.  Another goal of the CCRP is to raise public awareness of the need to reduce, re-use and recycle computer and communication products. With the extension of the programme in October 2015, general communication products can also be recycled.

The CCRP collects used computers and computer parts for refurbishment and recycling. The CCRP has lined up a charitable organisation to help refurbish computers that are still in working condition and donate them to the needy, and appointed a commercial recycler to dismantle the remaining used computers and recover useful parts and materials.

What to recycle

The CCRP accepts:

  • •   Desktop computers
  • ​​•   Laptops​
  • •   Computer monitors (both cathode-ray tube and LCD types)​
  • •   Printers​
