Choose to Reuse The FIRST Reusable Packaging Programme in Hong Kong

Cornerstone Smart Recycling with speciality in reuse system and recycling platform has been transforming our smart recycling bins into smart return stations for collecting loaned reusable containers since 2022. Echoing the upcoming implementation of MSW charging in April 2024, we believe reusable containers go through the process of repeatably use and end-of-life recycling which will divert large share of single use disposables away from landfills.

What is the reusable packaging pilot program about?

The reusable packaging pilot was launched in September 2022 in partnership with foodpanda HK and the World Wide Fund for Nature Hong Kong. As part of the reusable packaging pilot, Cornerstone Smart Recycling is the supplier of smart return station (“Station”) that collect loaned container from diners and circulate them within the close-loop system after centralised washing by third party.
