Objectives

The primary objective of establishing the Recycling Fund is to promote the recovery and recycling of waste by facilitating the upgrading of the operational capabilities and efficiency of the recycling industry for sustainable development in order to achieve the policy objectives of waste reduction in Hong Kong as pledged in the Blueprint and to address some of the bottlenecks / constraints in the recycling industry. Specifically, the Fund aim to support projects which can –

  1. Raise the quantity and quality of recyclables recovered from the waste stream as well as those of recycled products from their treatment, thus reducing disposal at our landfills;
  2. Promote markets for recycled products, thus providing greater impetus to local landfill diversion; and
  3. Enhance the overall capability, capacity, efficiency and skills as well as market information of the recycling industry, thus facilitating its sustainable development.
