Bernand Chan, the chairman of the Council of Sustainable Department, was invited to Hong Kong Shue Yan University to talk about the waste charging policy that will soon be practiced in Hong Kong. Chan said, the direction of the waste charging policy has already constructed, the focus of the issue for now on is to figure out what kind of pattern it is going to carry out.


The consultation period of the Waste Charging Policy will be ended by the early April, different aspects of people still have a lot of opinion about this policy. Chan said that the main idea of the policy has already been constructed. Different types of rubbish would be charged respectively. The Commercial Waste would be counted by the unit of weight, and the domestic waste would be counted by the unit of volume. “ By following Taiwan and Seoul’s method of collecting waste in a fixed plastic bag was a good idea also for us to practice in Hong Kong,” said Chan.

However, he said that it is a bit difficult for the government to cut and diminished the number of rubbish bins on the street suddenly because tourism in Hong Kong is flourished, 40 million of tourists come to Hong Kong every day, and it may be difficult to tell the tourist not to throw the rubbish. The main problem for that was the education. He realized that supporting is really needed for practicing the scheme in 2016 since this will disturb many of the citizens, but he hopes that all people should share the responsibility of waste charging and it is time for people to change their attitude of lifestyle.


Chan also added that the most important thing for the whole policy was to reduce the source of waste. He said the policy would also include the Responsibility of Production Scheme, in order to reduce the source of waste at first by collecting suitable amount of money. He said that if this can really being practice, there will be less rubbish collected finally.
