Perfect Green Arranged the Donation of Food Waste Compost from Stanley Prison to YWCA Farm for Healthy AgeingPerfect Green Arranged the Donation of Food Waste Compost from Stanley Prison to YWCA Farm for Healthy Ageing
Perfect Green supplied and installed a high-efficiency food waste decomposer for Correctional Services Department (CSD), HKSAR Government at Stanley Prison in March 2015. The decomposer can handle 100kg of food waste generated every day. With this high decomposition rate, the compost converted from food waste can be stored in the machine chamber for up to 6 months.
The compost converted from food waste has been collected recently. Perfect Green arranged to donate part of the compost to Hong Kong Young Woman's Christian Association (YWCA) "Farm for Healthy Ageing" located in Fanling. The farm covering 30,000 square feet, being used for organic farming. It is managed and run by a group of elders, through putting their expertise in farming into practice, these elderly people have also established a positive and healthy self-image. Moreover, during varies visiting activities, the elderly enjoy more intergenerational interaction opportunities.
We will work together with CSD and YWCA to promote food waste management, waste separation at source and organic farming to different stakeholders.
