Abstract

The goal of this project was to recommend a framework for a producer responsibility system (PRS) to address the sustainable waste management of glass beverage containers in Hong Kong. The objectives we created to accomplish this goal were to identify the scale of beverage container waste; the mechanics, costs, and difficulties of recycling; and examples of PRS around the world. Results were obtained through interviews, tours, a focus group, and literary searches. From our conclusions, we generated a framework.
