Electrical appliances re-energised

     Hong Kong people dump more than 70,000 tonnes of electrical appliances in local landfills each year. Most of them are still working or easily repaired.

     Since 2010, the Environmental Protection Department has teamed up with St James' Settlement on the WEEE Go Green project. Each month, project staff collect 3,800 electrical appliances which are repaired and donated to those in need.

     Staff members describe the cycle from collection through repair and redistribution in a story that appears today (February 17) on the website in both text and video versions.
