Official data showed that only 449 Smart Food Waste Bins were installed across the city as of mid-December last year, serving approximately 1,000 buildings. There are no smart recycling bins in Wan Chai District and Yau Tsim Mong District, while all private estates in Central and Western District, Southern District, Sham Shui Po, and Tai Po also lack such facilities.

The Environmental Protection Department previously announced that Smart Food Waste Bins would be installed in all public housing estates within this year to collect food waste. As for private housing courts, subsidy schemes are available to help them install food waste collection facilities.
