To facilitate the Government's initiative of expanding the food waste collection network, the Environmental Campaign Committee (ECC), through funding from the Environment and Conservation Fund, supported the Environmental Protection Department (EPD) to roll out the "Pilot Scheme on Food Waste Smart Recycling Bins in Private Housing Estates". The Scheme provides eligible large private housing estates with food waste smart bins (FWSBs), including installation and maintenance services, for a period of two years free of charge.
All private housing estates in Hong Kong that fulfill the following requirements are eligible to apply for the Scheme:
The ECC will centrally procure FWSBs, as well as cover the related rental expenses (including repair and maintenance fees), for appropriate distribution to the applying housing estates. Under normal circumstances, one FWSB will be allocated for every 500 households, while a maximum of 20 FWSBs can be granted for a private housing estate.
Resident's organisations or property management companies representing them can complete the application form below and submit it to the ECC Secretariat, on behalf of eligible private housing estates. Please refer to the Guidance Notes for the details of application.
