EcoPark

In 2005, the Government published "A Policy Framework for the Management of Municipal Solid Waste (2005-2014)" that sets out strategies on waste management putting emphasis on waste reduction and recovery. In operation since 2007, EcoPark provides long-term land at affordable costs and a whole package of amenities for use by the recycling industry with a view to alleviating the expenditure of recyclers on infrastructure, thereby encouraging their investment in advanced technologies and value-added recycling processes. EcoPark endeavors to promote the recycling of waste into resources, and by returning recyclable materials to the production line and the consumption loop, it aims to promote the development of the circular economy.

Introduction

Currently, only a portion of waste is recycled and recovered into useful products locally. Thus, a robust recycling industry is needed locally to handle the increasing demand of recycling and recovery. The development of the EcoPark is one of the Government’s initiatives to provide long-term land at affordable rent for the development of the recycling industry in Hong Kong with a view to encouraging investment in advanced technology and value-added recycling processes.
