Integrated Waste Management in Hong Kong

An effective waste management strategy comprises three key elements:

  • waste avoidance and minimization; 
  • reuse, recovery and recycling; and
  • bulk reduction and disposal of unavoidable waste in a sustainable and environmentally sound manner.

The comprehensive strategy has been set out in "A Policy Framework for the Management of Municipal Solid Waste" published by the Government in December 2005. Details of the strategy can be found at the EPD's website http://www.epd.gov.hk/epd/msw/.
