Waste Management

Resource Sustainability

141.         In Hong Kong, the amount of solid waste per capita per day is way higher than that of other advanced cities in the region. Our existing landfills will be full within seven years. It is a looming crisis. To address the problems, the Government will vigorously pursue a multi-pronged strategy. We will focus on waste reduction at source, while progressively implementing Producer Responsibility Schemes and the polluter-pays principle to boost the recovery and recycle rates of resource materials. On the other hand, with the use of the advanced Integrated Waste Management Facilities, we can turn waste into a resource. This can also reduce waste and alleviate the pressure on landfills. Expansion of landfills is an integral part of the overall strategy of waste management. To make this basket of policies a success, all of us should play our part.
