Recycle & Recover: Innovations and Collaborations for Our Zero Landfill Vision

Day 1 : 16:50 – 17:40

This panel will address the urgency of sustainable waste management in Hong Kong as we press to a Zero Landfill vision that was outlined in Waste Blueprint for Hong Kong 2035. After reducing wastage along the whole value, what more can we do to strengthen recycling practices in Hong Kong for residual disposal. The call for greater innovation and collaboration between stakeholders becomes more necessary as does the need for education and awareness of sustainable waste management practices. 


  • What key government regulations will affect waste management? 
  • Can we timely meet the Zero Landfill vision?  
  • How can businesses play their roles to meet such vision? How do we strengthen the recycling industry in Hong Kong? 

Post-event Actions 

  • Diversify recycling and recovery options in Hong Kong and communicate further to the public. 
  • Drive scalable recycling in Hong Kong through further discussions like stable supply of recyclable feedstock and effective land use support.
