Wong Kam-sing releases rubbish warning

CTA: so where would we put the bottom ash and where we would we treat the 7% fly ash (30% ash daily by weight of what they intend to incinerate ??)

Wong Kam-sing releases rubbish warning


The Environment Secretary Wong Kam-sing has warned that it won’t be long before Hong Kong is “surrounded by rubbish” if landfills are not expanded.

The current three landfills, in Tuen Mun, Ta Kwu Ling and Tseung Kwan O, are expected to be full by 2020.

Mr Wong described such facilities as indispensable and said the territory needed to expand the current three before an incinerator is ready.

Speaking to reporters after taking part in a RTHK programme, Mr Wong called on residents living near the landfills, who are opposing the expansion, to consider Hong Kong’s overall interests.
