Environmental Groups Urge the Use of Effective Per Household Model Pilot MSW Charging Scheme
Greeners Action and Friends of the Earth (HK) cooperate to launch a pilot scheme to test per household municipal solid waste (MSW) charging. The decrease of of waste of participating residential buildings reached 30% and the amount of recycled materials increased 50%. The effect of the test scheme is profound. Both the Greeners Action and Friends of the Earth agree that per household municipal solid waste (MSW) charging is more effective to encourage citizens to reduce waste. As the test scheme has proved that per household municipal solid waste (MSW) charging is feasible, the government should conduct legislation as soon as possible in order to achieve an effective waste reduction.
