More than 40 percent of residents used the smart recycling bins under the food waste collection trial scheme in public rental housing estates since last October, with over 400 tonnes of food waste collected.

The 18-month trial scheme, launched by the Environmental Protection Department (EPD), covered about 30 blocks in five public rental housing estates in Aberdeen, Ngau Tau Kok, Tseung Kwan O, Kennedy Town and Chai Wan in the first phase.

The scheme aims to encourage the practices of food waste source separation, collection and recycling, which can mitigate environmental hygiene problems and reduce the burden on landfills.
