The Environmental Protection Department said veterinary clinic Kadoorie Animal Hospital was fined HK$30,000 at the Kwun Tong Magistrates' Courts today after it was caught mixing clinical waste with general refuse for illegal disposal on a pedestrian walkway.

Including today's conviction, there were four convictions on illegal disposal of clinical waste last year while the prosecutions of a further two suspected cases are under way, an EPD spokesman said.
