Feature: Hong Kong faces up to the pressure

Hong Kong’s waste is well managed and has a number of unique features. There is no gate fee for waste at landfills and anyone can deliver any waste for disposal — even hazardous waste for treatment at no cost to them at present. Hong Kong landfills most of its waste and is reliant purely on market forces for recycling. Transfer stations are open 364 days a year.
