(Your incorrect choice of the word "fulfill" has confused your readers and renders your lead ambiguous. People can reject or disagree on a plan but not "cannot fulfill" a plan. You should always address the name of a nation or a city correctly by its official term. It is therefore "Taipei" instead of "Tai Pei" and "Taiwan" instead of "Tai Wan". I am sure you don't like people call you Ms Yim, or do you?)

“How can we give up the waste charging plan only because 20% of the people cannot fulfill it while the rest can?” Bernard Chan, the Chairman of the Council for Sustainable Development, said in Hong Kong Shue Yan University today about the topic of domestic waste problem.

Seeking for a solution between the differences

Chan mentioned that during the consulting time, different parties and stakeholders have expressed their views. They came to agreements that the needy should be considered and received help in the waste charging policy. Plus, the charge ought to be based on each unit or family. However, they failed to reach a consensus on the price: some parties insisted to charge under $30. Chan suggested that Hong Kong government considered Tai Pei and Seoul as role models; they had a report system that encouraged the neighbour to monitor each other.

Other ways than landfill

Since the landfill districts are going to be full in the next 8 years, Chan urged the government to provide subsidy for the recycling business. “The rubbish has no value now, so no one is willing to recycle it”. He also suggested that, the rubbish in Hong Kong transferred to Tai Wan or Guangdong to incinerate because they have the spare facilities to do so. Nonetheless, the citizens there were likely to opposed the idea, so it may not be a possible solution.
