Joining hands with the Environmental Protection Department, HKFYG sets up the “Community Recycling Network - NGO Collection Points” in our Youth S.P.O.Ts for the fourth consecutive years to educate the general public in developing a long-lasting habit on clean waste recycling. At the same time, the collection points provides access for collecting recyclables with low commercial value, including plastics, glass bottles and small waste electrical and electronic equipments.
As of September 2016, thanks to support from residents and youth, we have collected 50,488.2 kilograms of recyclables, which equivalent to plant 28,901 trees indirectly. HKFYG will continue to work hard in preserving our natural environment through different environmental education programme.
