This report, completed for Greenpeace China, critiques plans to build a waste incinerator in Hong Kong and presents a more rationale non-burn discard management strategy. It provides a blueprint for moving toward zero waste policies and programs in Hong Kong. The report presents zero waste as a philosophy and a design principle for the 21st Century that goes beyond recycling to include product redesign and manufacturer responsibility. Zero waste is a system that aims to eliminate rather than manage waste.
