WASTE

WHAT WE BELIEVE

 

We believe in "full recycling and zero landfilling" by applying a management hierarchy starting with waste avoidance and reuse, followed by waste recycling, and having incineration and landfills as the last resort.

WHAT WE DO

 

The key approaches FoE (HK) takes are to:

Lobby the Government to legislate on Producer Responsibility that obliges producers to shoulder their proportional environmental responsibility and this is exemplified by the taking back of used products and simplifying of packaging. We urge the Government to take on the measure of Waste Charging as an effective means to reduce overall solid waste.

Engage the public and organizations through our Food Waste Campaign which prompted the private sector, such as supermarkets, to stop wasting food and distribute edible items to the needy.
