     An EPD spokesperson said, "We have received a very positive response with over 180 stakeholders from various sectors attending the first two sessions. Participants have not only acquired a better understanding of the recommendations of the Council for Sustainable Development on the implementation of MSW charging, but have also exchanged views and shared experience on enhancing community participation in waste reduction and recycling so as to get themselves better prepared for the implementation of quantity-based MSW charging in Hong Kong."
