Wong calls for funding to expand landfills
(04-15 12:46)

The Secretary for the Environment, Wong Kam-sing, said on Tuesday that all items in the plan to expand Hong Kong's three landfills and to build an incinerator were indispensable.
He made the remark in a newspaper article ahead of a Legislative Council's Public Works Subcommittee meeting on Wednesday that will discuss the government's request for HK$20 billion to carry out the projects.
Wong said lawmakers' approval for the funding request was urgently needed because the landfills will reach capacity over the next five years and an incinerator will take eight years to build. --RTHK
