Opening Ceremony of the EcoPark WEEE Recycling Centre
 

The grand opening ceremony of the EcoPark WEEE Recycling Centre was launchedon 27 January 2011. The event was officiated by Mr. Edward Yau, JP, Secretary for the Environment. Mr. Yau remarked at the opening ceremony, “The WEEE Recycling Centre combines the elements of environmental protection, social service and education. Not only will it ensure the proper disposal of used electrical appliances and reduce the pressure on our landfills, but also create employment opportunities for workers of low technical skill, so that they can learn a trade.”

The 5,000-square metre EcoPark WEEE Recycling Centre is Hong Kong’s best equipped centre for recycling used electrical and electronic appliances. Through donation, refurbishment and dismantling, used appliances can be recycled or put to second-hand use to help the needy.

The Centre has also won the sponsorship of China Light and Power Hong Kong Limited, devotee of environmental protection, to establish an Education Centre which aims to promote the new recycling culture in the community and advocate reuse and enhance environmental protection education.
