Restaurant food waste bound for new plant
(03-13 14:11)

Food waste from restaurants will be collected once the organic waste treatment plant is built in 2016, the government said today.
Environment officials told legislators that they would launch another study next year on handling domestic food waste. The government is seeking approval from lawmakers to build the HK$1.5-billion facility near Siu Ho Wan on Lantau Island. It is designed to handle 200 tonnes of food waste a day.
Civic Party legislator, Kenneth Chan, said the government should also examine regulations covering restaurants.—RTHK
