Abstract

Construction and demolition (C&D) waste is a major contributor to the high volume of refuse in Hong Kong. A critical review of Hong Kong's C&D waste management was carried out using information gained from interviews, observations, and policy analyses. Based on the acquired data, the team determined that the situation required attention and repair. In order to remedy the problems, recommendations including instituting tipping fees, creating recycling plants, employing environmentally friendly deconstruction methods, developing waste minimization programs, and increasing communication were provided.
