The "Green in Kwun Tong" operating group collected 3 tons of paper-wrapped beverage boxes last year and handed them over to Baguio, the waste disposal contractor, for transfer to the recycler "Mil Mill". However, Miaofang said that it has never received the batch of paper Beverage boxes and paper boxes are missing.

Liu Zhifeng, chief executive of Green Earth, said on a radio program today (25th) that if the Environmental Protection Agency carefully examines the documents, it should be able to find the root of the problem, so he urges the authorities to thoroughly investigate the incident and severely punish the wrongdoing organization to restore the public's confidence in recycling .


Liu Yaocheng, president of the Hong Kong Environmental Waste Recycling Industry Association, said that it is a common practice for downstream contractors to centralize recycling waste to save costs. According to his understanding, recycled paper-wrapped beverage boxes cannot be exported to the mainland or other places, so they can only be sent to Miaofang At this stage, I dare not speculate on the whereabouts of the three tons of recycled drink boxes involved.

Liu Yaocheng said on the Hong Kong and Taiwan program "Millennium" in the morning that "Green in Kwun Tong" took many months to collect three tons of recycled paper-wrapped drink boxes, which may only be 100 kilograms per month. The cost of transporting to Miaofang each time It may reach 1,400 yuan. Therefore, the common practice of "green in the district" is that upstream contractors will drive away together with other recycled items to save costs.

Regarding Baguio’s reply claiming that the recycled paper-wrapped beverage boxes have been exported to the mainland or outside for recycling, Liu Yaocheng analyzed that the mainland and Southeast Asia have classified paper-wrapped beverage boxes as household waste, so the relevant recycled materials cannot be exported to the relevant regions, even if Broken recycled paper-wrapped drink boxes cannot be exported to the mainland. Therefore, under normal circumstances, the recycled paper-wrapped drink boxes are handed over to the local Miaofang for processing. At this stage, it is difficult for him to estimate the whereabouts of the three tons of recycled drink boxes involved.

According to Miaofang Facebook, Green did not deliver any recycled paper packaging boxes in Kwun Tong in the second half of last year.

Liu Zhifeng, chief executive of Green Earth, said that the three-ton beverage boxes involved in the incident had been collected by the contractor of "Green in Kwun Tong" for more than half a year. They are large in size and will not be easily lost.

He continued to point out that the contractor of "Green in Kwun Tong" should have kept the data and handed over the receipt to Baguio, and Miaofang should also have a receipt stating that the recycled beverage box has been received after receiving the recycled beverage box. I believe that As long as the Environmental Protection Agency checks carefully, it can find out which link is wrong and who is responsible.

Liu Zhifeng mentioned that this incident will weaken the public's confidence in recycling waste, and urges the Environmental Protection Agency to thoroughly investigate and explain to the public which link is wrong, and to punish the wrongdoing organization with deterrent penalties instead of fines of thousands of dollars. , to ensure that similar incidents do not recur.

Green’s 3 tons of paper bags in Kwun Tong have not been handed over to Miaofang’s whereabouts are unknown. Environmental Protection Agency: Do not hand over to Baguio Port waters and other areas with 90% less microplastics. Environmental Protection Agency: Plastic bag levy far below the potential ecological risk level|12.31 cases Can merchants charge more than 1 yuan for price increase?

The new case deconstructs point by point. Last year, an average of 15,000 tons of garbage was sent to landfills per capita. The per capita waste was 1.53 kg, the highest level since the reunification.
