Kwun Tong Community Green Station

Kwun Tong Community Green Station

To strengthen the support for waste reduction and recycling at the district level, the Environmental Protection Department continues its effort in establishing a network of Community Green Stations (CGSs) across the territory to instill a green living culture in the community. 

The plan is to set up one CGS in each of the 18 districts. The first one was set up in 2015.  With government funding, CGSs are operated by non-profit-making organisations engaged through open tenders.  The CGS operators, through different recycling programmes and educational activities, proactively connect with housing estates and property management companies in their districts to establish the service network.

 

They also set up public place collection points and deploy collection vehicles in their districts to collect recyclables, including paper, plastic, metals, electrical appliances, glass bottles, fluorescent lamps and tubes, rechargeable batteries, etc.  The recyclables collected will then be sent to suitable recyclers for subsequent processing.  Moreover, the CGS operators organise free-of-charge swap events from time to time for members of public to promote the reuse of used items such as old books, clothes and toys, etc.
