Towards Plastic-Free Eateries: How Will Hong Kong Phase Out Plastic Tableware?
Members exchanged views with Government officials on the proposed Scheme on Regulation of Disposable Plastic Tableware (Regulation Scheme) at a Chamber webinar on 19 August.
In connection with an ongoing public consultation on the Regulation Scheme, Fong Kin-wa, Assistant Director at the Environmental Protection Department, explained that the Government’s proposals to prohibit the sale and use of single-use plastic tableware were intended to help Hong Kong transition to a “plastic-free” city. His colleague Joanne Yung, Principal Environmental Protection Officer, explained in detail the intended scope and features of the Regulation Scheme, which will be implemented over two phases as from 2025.
