CE visits EPD’s green facilities

Chief Executive Carrie Lam today visited the green facilities run by the Environmental Protection Department in Sheung Wan, Lantau and Tuen Mun.   Mrs Lam first visited GREEN@SHEUNG WAN, a new Recycling Store set up by the department, to learn more about its work in recyclables separation.   The department’s 22 Recycling Stores form part of a community recycling network and have received over 50,000 visitors in less than three months since their operation began.   Mrs Lam said she believes that such initiatives encourage more people to integrate the practice of waste reduction and recycling into their daily lives.   She then visited O.PARK1 at Siu Ho Wan on Lantau Island, which is the first organic resources recovery centre in Hong Kong for converting food waste into electricity.   As the daily food waste treatment capacity of O.PARK1 is only about 200 tonnes, the department is constructing O.PARK2 to meet additional needs.   The Chief Executive also visited another waste-to-energy facility in Tuen Mun, namely T•PARK, where she was briefed on the technology of turning sewage sludge generated from sewage treatment facilities into electricity. Nearly 280,000 people have visited the park since its opening.   Upon concluding the green tour, Mrs Lam emphasised that various government bureaus and departments will fully support the Environment Bureau to promote the Waste Blueprint for Hong Kong 2035 to realise the vision of waste reduction, resources circulation and zero landfill.   She added that she hopes the Legislative Council can finish scrutinising the bill on charging for municipal solid waste and pass it as early as possible to assist in waste and carbon reduction to combat climate change and create more job opportunities.

Where is Hong Kong?

Positioned at the mouth of the Pearl River Delta on the coast of southern China, Hong Kong’s geographical position as a gateway between the East and West has made it an attractive centre for international trade. As a reflection of this, the heart of Asia’s world city has always been the bustling and beautiful Victoria Harbour. Hong Kong’s 1,104-square-kilometer area comprises Hong Kong Island, which lies to the south of the harbour, the Kowloon Peninsula, which forms its northern shores, the New Territories to the north of Kowloon, which stretch all the way to Mainland China, and more than 200 outlying islands, including Lantau Island, where Hong Kong International Airport is located.
