Treatment of Solid Waste

68. A total of 3.4 million tonnes of refuse was disposed of at the three landfills last year. Obviously, relying solely on landfills to treat solid waste is not sustainable. In any advanced society, the treatment of municipal waste must involve waste reduction, recovery and reuse and appropriate treatment of what is left. Methods to resolve the waste problem completely include policy incentives to change people’s habits of waste disposal, the encouragement of recovery and reuse and the promotion of recycling industries. For this purpose, Phase I of the EcoPark being built in Tuen Mun Area 38, designated for the development of environmental industries, will be commissioned towards the end of 2006.
