Y·PARK

After the onslaught of Super Typhoon Mangkhut in 2018, the Government established a temporary yard waste recycling site to recycle the fallen trees generated and other general yard waste. To rachet up the scale of yard waste recycling and diversify the types of recyclable products, the Government develops Y·PARK, a yard waste recycling centre, based on the past experience.

 

Y·PARK is located in Tsang Tsui, Tuen Mun and adjacent to West New Territories (WENT) Landfill. Its aim is to promote recycling of yard waste into useful materials, reducing disposal at landfills and relevant carbon emission, realising “zero landfill” and facilitating carbon neutrality in the long run.

 

Y·PARK is equipped with various installations, including wood shredders, wood cutting machine, drying and sterilisation unit etc., which can transform suitable yard waste into various useful materials such as wood boards, wood beams, wood chips and sawdust etc.

What is

Yard Waste?

Yard waste is also known as green waste or garden waste, which consists of all types of vegetation waste. This type of waste decomposes gradually in nature. Woody material is also combustible. The major sources of yard waste in Hong Kong include construction works and clearance works arising from regular vegetation maintenance. Clearance of fallen trees from emergency incidents (e.g. super typhoon) will also increase the quantity of yard waste.
