Organized by Hong Kong Waste Management Association

With Hong Kong progressively moving towards sustainable waste management and in view of the municipal solid waste (MSW) charging scheme upcoming in due course, this One-Day Forum will focus on discussing and forecasting how this charging scheme will bring along the "temporary pain"
to Hong Kong in the short term, and how it will likely alter the landscape and ecology of the waste management practices, recycling industries and citizens' behavioural changes in Hong Kong on the long run.

Apart from key local policy makers and advocators, prestigious speakers from our neighbouring regions (such as Taiwan and Korea) as well as those from Europe will share with us their experiences on the initial formulation of policies, behavioural changes observed, difficulties encountered as well as the continual evolution of their waste management policies and practices to suit their local needs and cultures.

As one of the most devoted professional associations in Hong Kong dedicated on waste management, this Forum will be an unique and open platform to all those interested in appreciating
the in-depth changes to be brought about by this MSW charging scheme.

The Forum is broadly divided into three (3) sessions - "Policy", "Implementation" and "Recycling Industry", and will be one of the very few occasions where local government officials, policy makers, academia, community stakeholders, consultants, contractors get together to discuss the upcoming MSW charging scheme, in presence of and in support from regional and international experts who had already undergone this exercise.
