Food waste

About 3,300 tonnes of food waste were disposed of at landfills each day, of these about 30% were generated from commercial and industrial (C&I) sources. The current practice of disposal of food waste at landfills is not environmentally sustainable. We would invite C&I organisations to join the "Pilot Scheme on Food Waste Collection" launched by the Environmental Protection Department to convert food waste into useful resources.

Introduction of Pilot Scheme on Food Waste Collection

The Environmental Protection Department launched a larger scale “Pilot Scheme on Food Waste Collection” in 2021, mainly to focus on private (commercial and industrial sector) and public premises with larger quantities of food waste generated in various districts of Hong Kong. Source-separated food waste collected under the Pilot Scheme is transformed into energy and compost at O · PARK1.

Food Waste Recycling Tips

Food packaging must be removed before recycling
General waste and other recyclables (e.g. glass containers, cans) should be handled separately
Excessive water contained in food waste should be drained off as much as possible
Oversized or hard materials should be avoided
Food waste can be temporarily refrigerated to reduce odour, if needed
