Plastic bags to be used for disposing of garbage will be environmentally-friendly and will made up of about 50 percent of recyclable contents, and will be degradable,  the Secretary for the Environment, Mr Wong Kam-sing, said today.

"We also prefer to see the recyclables to be locally available. That means those waste plastics generated locally can be used for the manufacturing of these plastic bags; even preferably, these plastic bags can be manufactured in Hong Kong. So it can reduce waste and be low-carbon.'' -The Standard
