1.Permanent Recycling Bank
We offer recycling banks and provide logistic support for the collection of used clothes. Frequency of collection depends on the amount of recyclables collected. FoE(HK) has paid for the third-party and fire insurances for all recycling banks.

2.Short-term Cooperation
If permanent placement of recycling banks is not possible, you may also consider a short-term recycling programme of a few weeks to be managed onsite by your property management department or administration department. We will arrange collection at the end of the programme.

3.Door-to-Door Collection (In light of the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, we are putting the safety of the public and our staff first. Therefore, the door-to-door collection is now suspended until further notice.)
