E-waste Collection

Proper Recycling of Regulated Electrical Equipment Turning Waste into Resources

 

Introduction

The Producer Responsibility Scheme on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WPRS) covering the eight types of regulated electrical equipment (REE) (including air-conditioners, refrigerators, washing machines, televisions, computers, printers, scanners and monitors) came into effect in 2018 and marks another important milestone in Hong Kong's waste reduction and recycling efforts. Through the WPRS, relevant waste electrical and electronic equipment must be directed to licensed recycling facilities for proper treatment and recycling, turning waste into resources, thus offering a long term solution to potential land contamination and environmental problems arising from mishandling during transfer, storage and dismantling processes.

To underpin the WPRS, a Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Treatment and Recycling Facility (WEEE·PARK) developed by the Government has commenced its operation since October 2017. The annual design processing capacity of WEEE·PARK is 30,000 tonnes of regulated WEEE, which adopts advanced technologies to turn regulated WEEE into valuable secondary raw materials through a series of detoxification, dismantling and recycling processes.

Statutory Free Removal Service

Statutory Free Removal Service

The WPRS provides a convenient recycling channel for the proper collection of used equipment requiring disposal. Upon purchase of a new REE item, members of the public are entitled to a statutory free removal service arranged by the seller to collect a used item of the same class. For details, please contact REE sellers.

 

Collection Hotline (2676 8888)

Collection Hotline (2676 8888)

Apart from the statutory free removal service, the Government also introduced a new and free collection service. Members of the public not purchasing a new REE item can make an appointment with the operator for the Government for a free collection service through the recycling hotline 2676 8888. This service will not only promote recycling, but it will also save members of the public the burden of disposing the used REE on their own or at a cost. The collection service will serve mainly residential users. Non-residential users, e.g. commercial organisations, may also use the collection service. In general, non-residential users have more storage space and, in most cases, have several old appliances that need to be recycled. In order to make good use of logistics resources, the WEEE‧PARK operator will normally request non-residential users to have 4 or more old appliances for making a request for recycling.

 

Community Green Stations (CGSs)
