To combat climate change and to promote sustainable development of our society, we should use less, waste less to reduce carbon emissions;
The per capita MSW disposal of Hong Kong is higher than those of other major cities, and continues to increase.
In the past 30 years, the increase in MSW in Hong Kong far outpaced the population growth. Our landfills receive a large quantity of waste every day. Waste reduction has become ever more imminent and acute.
There are two charging modes proposed under the MSW Charging Amendment Bill, namely charging by designated garbage bags (various sizes available), and charging by weight through gate-fee. If you would like to know more about how to handle oversized waste and how to purchase designated garbage bags, please click Learn More for more details.
Support and promotion by the Government include our new resources for promoting waste reduction and enhancing recycling, and stepped up publicity and public education.
Public should understand the proposed implementation arrangements of the charging scheme, and enhance waste reduction at source and recycling.
