HK must speed up roll-out of food waste bins at private housing amid residents dropping off scraps at public estates: lawmakers


Hong Kong must speed up the installation of food waste collection bins in private residential buildings as some residents are disposing of their scraps at public estates, lawmakers have said, after authorities vowed to introduce more of the facilities.

A green group also raised concerns on Wednesday about whether the city’s infrastructure could cope with increased demand for the recycling of food scraps ahead of a separate waste-charging scheme set to be rolled out in August, despite the government plan to install more dedicated bins.
