ALBA Integrated Waste Solutions (Hong Kong) Limited (ALBA IWS) is pleased to announce that it has recycled four million pieces of regulated e-waste, including appliances such as air conditioners, refrigerators, washing machines, televisions, computers, printers, scanners, and monitors since October 2017 at the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Treatment and Recycling Facility (WEEE · PARK). This has contributed significantly to waste reduction and carbon reduction efforts in Hong Kong.
On 15 June 2023, ALBA IWS held a celebration ceremony at WEEE · PARK. The event was attended by Mr. Bruno LUK Kar Kin, JP, Deputy Director of Environmental Protection (Waste Reduction) of the Environmental Protection Department, representatives from ALBA Group Asia and Integrated Waste Solutions Group, who witnessed the processing of the 4 millionth piece of collected appliance.
Mr. GUO Yi, Chief Financial Officer of ALBA Group Asia said, “Over the past five years, ALBA IWS has successfully recovered tens of thousands of tons of secondary materials such as iron, copper, aluminium, and plastic through recycling and remanufacturing. Through these recovered materials, ALBA IWS has indirectly helped Hong Kong reduce about 350,000 tonnes of carbon emissions and promote the goal of achieving carbon neutrality. However, we don’t just stop here, we also donate refurbished appliances to community in need. This project is a perfect showcase of sustainability, setting an exemplar for Hong Kong and the world.”
