The Mainland authorities have introduced more stringent requirements on the import of recyclables from around the world including Hong Kong. Starting from January 2018, waste plastics and unsorted scrap paper, among other types of solid waste, have been banned from being imported into the Mainland. The Government is rolling out a host of measures to assist the local recycling industry and the community as a whole to better grasp the emerging opportunities brought about by the challenges, including mounting a new round of clean recycling campaign, planning the establishment of new outreach teams to help the community practise source separation of waste and clean recycling through strengthened field support, planning district-based pilot projects to collect and process waste plastic bottles, and incubating a local manufacturing industry using domestically recovered recyclables.

The Deputy Director of Environmental Protection, Mrs. Vicki Kwok, will update AmCham Members on the Government’s waste management policy, the implementation progress of various measures, and the challenges and opportunities in nurturing a circular economy in Hong Kong.
