To strengthen the support for waste reduction and recycling at the district level, the Environmental Protection Department (EPD) is actively building a new community recycling network, including Recycling Stations, Recycling Stores and Recycling Spots, and promoting different initiatives across the territory with a view to gaining more support from the public to go green and instill a green living culture in the community.


GREEN @ COMMUNITY has been rebranded to become a new community recycling network. It uses the word "green" as the concept and the homophonic number "6" in Cantonese as the logo. Its design is also consistent with the prefix "G " of “GREEN” and its form is similar to the common recycling symbol, with meaning of going green in endless cycle.

GREEN$ Smart Card

To facilitate and encourage the public to use the community recycling facilities, the EPD introduced the GREEN$ (Greeny Coins) smart card on 16 November 2020, for the public to earn electronic bonus points and redeem gift items. Members of the public bringing not less than 2 kg of recyclables to the new community recycling network can register to get a GREEN$ card. By showing the Green$ card or the QR code image printed on the back of the card in subsequent submission of recyclables, the public can earn Green$ for redemption of gift items.
