Eligibility

1. The applicant should meet the following criteria to be eligible for the Enterprise Support Programme under the Recycling Fund –

(a) Any enterprise (including but not limited to sole proprietor, partnership, private company and public company) duly established, incorporated and registered under the laws of Hong Kong or its place of incorporation with a valid business registration certificate issued under the Business Registration Ordinance (Cap 310 of the Laws of Hong Kong) for carrying on a business in Hong Kong (unless it is exempted from the requirement to apply for a business certificate under such Ordinance (where applicable)) and have substantive business operations in Hong Kong.  The applicant must provide documentary evidence proving its substantive business operations at the time of application. Such evidence can be employee records, tax returns, business transaction documents such as business contracts, invoices, etc.  Besides, the applicant should have been involved in recycling related operation with a proven track record for at least 1 year before submitting an application to the Recycling Fund, unless the applicant can provide exceptionally strong justification (e.g. companies with shorter period of establishment but have very experienced management / supervisory staff in recycling related operation)

(b) Bodies and organisations with close connection to the recycling industry including property management companies (PMC) and Owners’ Corporations (OC) registered under the Building Management Ordinance (Cap. 344).

2. At the time of application, the applicant should not be subject to any bankruptcy order or proceeding.  The Secretariat / RFAC will reject those applications submitted by enterprises deliberately using different business registrations (BRs) to circumvent the funding ceiling per enterprise (see clause 3.1 below). Applicants whose related persons have previously applied for grant under the Recycling Fund will be treated as one single entity and consequentially all applications for the Recycling Fund will be subject to the prevailing cumulative funding ceiling per entity of HK$15 million.

3. Projects which are or will be in receipt of other public funding support will not be considered.
