​EPD conducts technical trial to prepare for implementation of municipal solid waste charging

To prepare for the implementation of municipal solid waste (MSW) charging, the Environmental Protection Department (EPD) is conducting a technical trial to retrofit three refuse collection vehicles (RCVs) of the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) with an automated bin-counting system for charging on the basis of "by volume of waste disposed of by building". The trial commenced on 1 July 2015 and is making good progress.
 
Perfect Green was invited to visit the operations trial of automated bin-counting system at one of the Government Estate in Kwai Chung in March 2016. We are glad to share the views with the stakeholder and EPD in the briefing session.
