Recycling Infrastructure


Over the years, we have met the HKUST 2020 Sustainability Challenge targets on reducing waste going to landfill by 50%, over 200 new recycling bins and collection stations have been installed around the campus. Now over 15 different materials are separated and collected. New recycling bins with tailor-made designs on “Smart People…Recycle” were installed in key common areas, office pantries, hall common rooms and staff quarters. There are wide range of collected recyclables including paper, plastic, metal, glass, styrofoam, food waste, electronic waste, beverage carton, wood, clothes, landscape waste and animal bedding etc.
