Frustrated with the government’s recycling services, Hongkongers are taking matters into their own hands
It is great to see young people becoming actively involved in recycling as reported in a recent SCMP article. The fact that the rate of recycling in Hong Kong is currently at a 10-year low shows the need for everyone to try to do more to help with recycling efforts.
It appears that communities are taking action on their own, to supplement efforts by the government. This is the type of community response that should be applauded. Given the amount of waste we create in Hong Kong — “According to the latest official figures, in 2017, Hong Kong generated 5.75 million tonnes of municipal solid waste” — any efforts to reduce the negative effects are a good thing.
