The Environmental Protection Department has prepared a series of animation videos with subtitles in Bahasa Indonesia, Hindi, Nepali, Punjabi, Tagalog, Thai, Urdu and Vietnamese regarding the Municipal Solid Waste Charging in Hong Kong.

Quantity-based waste charging aims to create incentives to drive behavioural changes in waste generation and hence reduce overall waste disposal. With reference to the experiences of other major cities, quantity-based waste charging is an effective tool to achieve waste reduction. For the implementation of municipal solid waste (MSW) charging in Hong Kong, the Waste Disposal (Charging for Municipal Solid Waste) (Amendment) Bill 2018 (Amendment Bill) was introduced to the Legislative Council for scrutiny on 14 November 2018. MSW charges are proposed to be levied through two modes, namely charging by designated garbage bags/designated labels and charging by weight-based “gate-fee”.
