Food Waste Recycling Partnership Scheme

In order to promote good food waste management practice and to gain experience on food waste source separation and recycling, EPD launched the ‘’Food Waste Recycling Partnership Scheme’’ together with commercial & industrial (C&I) sectors in 2009.  A Working Group comprising representatives from the Government and the C&I sectors has been set up in Dec 2009 to plan and manage the operation of the Scheme.

The participating C&I sectors and organizations in the Working Group include:
  • Hong Kong Federation of Restaurants and Related Trades
  • Hong Kong Hotels Association
  • Hong Kong Estate Management Association
  • Hong Kong Food Council
  • Association of Green Organic at Living
  • Federation of Hong Kong Kowloon New Territories Hawker Association
  • The Link Management Limited
  • Vegetable Marketing Organization
  • Food and Environmental Hygiene Department

The scheme will last for 3 years and around 12 public or private corporate participants will be invited to join the Scheme each year.  The participants will practise source-separation of food waste and EPD will collect the source separated food waste to the Kowloon Bay Pilot Composting Plant (KBPCP) for recycling.  The scheme also includes formulating guidelines on food waste management, and hosting discussion sessions, visits, etc., to provide a platform for participants to share experience on food waste reduction.  To recognize their contribution to food waste reduction, commendation certificate will be presented to the participants.  EPD has commissioned Greeners Action to co-organize the publicity and promotional activities.
