In order to get prepared for the Municipal Solid Waste Charging, HKFYG cooperates with EPD for the project of “Community Recycling Network”, and sets up the collection outlets in the youth space. Public can recycle plastic wastes, glass bottles and electronic products through the collection outlets, thereby reducing the amount of municipal solid waste.
HKFYG encourages the public to form a habit of waste reduction and recycling through the collection outlets of the youth space, so as to reduce the usage of landfill.
Through the promotion of the youth space and the support of the youth and public, we collected a lot of recyclable material, and the weight of them as of July 2017 was 59,892.2kg which are equal to the weight of 37,432 large dictionary books.
