Hong Kong, China


Twenty-five percent of waste tires in Hong Kong are not recycled in spite of a vigorous recycling industry and landfills nearing capacity. The goal of this project was to identify possible solutions to the country's waste tire management. To accomplish this goal, we interviewed influential members of the waste tire community, conducted library research, and researched current waste tire statistics. Through analysis of this data we developed a set of recommendations for Hong Kong to accomplish complete waste tire recycling.
