A win for recycling on Lantau.
These glass and electronics waste recycling bins (above left) were installed in Tong Fuk earlier this month, adding to those already in place in Mui Wo and Pui O. Their arrival follows some persistent lobbying by LIM and GALa (Glass Lantau Action group) .
The bins are next to the ‘three-colour’ (paper, plastics and metal) recycling containers at the Tong Fuk
But this is still part of a pilot programme. LIM’s goal is to have the government set up permanent glass recycling at all recycling stations on South Lantau and ideally across the whole of the SAR.
LIM calls on members to encourage other Lantau residents to use these pilot glass recycling bins and also write or call to the government 1823 hotline thanking them for the current bins and requesting bins near their home. For the location of all Lantau recycling bins, click here.
