“Take Away Your Rubbish” Country Park Cleanup and Survey

Hiking is getting more and more popular in Hong Kong in recent years. At the same time, the amount of rubbish generated in country parks has been increased. We strongly recommend hikers to reduce waste generation and not to leave your trash behind in the parks.

FoE (HK) has organised a country park cleanup and survey to investigate the cleanliness of country parks, as well as to clean up rubbish from some popular hiking trails in country parks. We sincerely invite your organisation to join this meaningful event to convey the message of "produce less waste".

Registration is now open on a first-come first-served basis. For details and registration, please email
