    A lot of money gets funnelled to the poor. I am not sure how efficient it is.

    As for recycling we will soon get the government trash can bags at $XX each which should drive the population to reduce the waste they trough in landfill and increase the amount that goes into streamed recycling bins.

    There's a whole bunch of separate bins where I live but most residents throw regular trash into the recycle bins (particularly if someone has jammed a sofa or some other huge item into the general waste bin). And then I lost all hope when I saw the pickup people chucking all the sorted waste into one truck... I bet it all goes straight to landfill anyway

    Regrettably I'm therefore falling into line with Ellena on this... always makes me a bit sad about the futility of all those years washing out yoghurt pots in the UK when you see what goes on here. When I leave I'm throwing everything into the harbour en route to the airport

    This was the case for the MTR. They had streamed recycle bins but no contract to take streamed waste away. The public segregated their waste then the MTR unsegregated it for them.

    Because there is no money in this business and since China stop taking trash for recycling, there is no real monetary incentive to bother with recycling...

    The biggest thing we could do for the environment is encourage the Guangzhou authorities to hurry up with the nuclear plants they are building up the coast so we can gradually deprecate the coal fired nightmare that is HK electricity

    Yeah…. No. Will just ensure people have a supply of normal rubbish bags they’ll dump in communal rubbish areas without any accountability. Or recycle bins will be filled with normal rubbish.

    Very positively surprised by this recycling bin notice. In my neighborhood, the cum recycling bins were just removed without any notice or advise what to do with the recyclables instead.

    But that of course doesn’t solve the issue that the recycling centers are to far away for some people.

    Who got the contract to run the what must be a much much more expensive method of recycling?
