Glass Management

As glass is an inert material that will not degrade naturally, casual disposal of glass bottles will consume our dwindling landfill space and is a waste of the valuable resource. To achieve the waste reduction target, the HKSAR government is now actively preparing for the implementation of the Producer Responsibility Scheme (PRS) on glass beverage containers, and appointed Baguio as a qualified glass management contractor to undertake waste glass container collection and treatment services in Hong Kong Island (including Islands District) and the New Territories.

Baguio is now actively establishing a collection network covering all Commercial & Industrial Development, Food & Beverage Development, Government Development, Institutions, Private & Public Housing Estates and Public Area to collect waste glass bottles. We are responsible for waste glass bottles collection, treatment and recycling services. As the same time, Baguio will invest ample resources in public education to promote “Proper and clean recycling of glass bottle”.
