Relevant Legislation and Guidelines






Good Site Practices

Good site practices during the construction activities include:

·         Nomination of an approved personnel, such as a site manager, to be responsible for the implementation of good site practices, arrangements for collection and effective disposal to an appropriate facility, of all wastes generated at the site.

·         Training of site personnel in site cleanliness, appropriate waste management procedures and concepts of waste reduction, reuse and recycling.

·         Provision of sufficient waste disposal points and regular collection for disposal.

·         Appropriate measures to minimise windblown litter and dust during transportation of waste by either covering trucks or by transporting wastes in enclosed containers.

·         Regular cleaning and maintenance programme for drainage systems, sumps and oil interceptors.

·         A Waste Management Plan shall be prepared in accordance with ETWB TCW No. 15/2003 and submitted to the Engineer for approval.

Waste Disposal Ordinance (Cap.54), ETWB TCW No. 15/2003


General Refuse

General refuse shall be stored in enclosed bins or compaction units.  A reputable waste collector shall be employed by the contractor to remove general refuse from the site.  An enclosed and covered area is preferred to reduce the occurrence of ‘wind blown’ light material.

Chemical Wastes

If chemical wastes are produced at the construction site, the Contractor would be required to register with the EPD as a Chemical Waste Producer and to follow the guidelines stated in the Code of Practice on the Packaging, Labelling and Storage of Chemical Wastes.   The Waste Disposal Ordinance (Cap 354) and its subsidiary regulations, in particular the Waste Disposal (Chemical Waste) (General) Regulation, should be observed and complied with for control of chemical wastes.  The Contractor shall use a licensed collector to transport and dispose of the chemical wastes, to either the Chemical Waste Treatment Centre at Tsing Yi, or another licensed facility, in accordance with the Waste Disposal (Chemical Waste) (General) Regulation.

Disposal of chemical wastes should be carried out in compliance with the Waste Disposal Ordinance. The Code of Practice on the Packaging, Labelling and Storage of Chemical Wastes published under the Waste Disposal Ordinance details the requirements to deal with chemical wastes. General requirements are given as follows:

·          Suitable containers should be used to hold the chemical wastes to avoid leakage or spillage during storage, handling and transport.

·          Chemical waste containers should be suitably labelled, to notify and warn the personnel who are handling the wastes, to avoid accidents.

·          Storage area should be selected at a safe location on site and adequate space should be allocated to the storage area.
