To say that Hong Kong has a waste problem is an understatement. We dispose over 2.36 million tonnes of household waste in 2015 alone, our city recycles less each year, have no composting facility, while our landfills is predicted to be full in 2019, and mainland China will ban imports on unprocessed recyclables starting at the end of this year. Faced with such challenges it's easy to be disheartened, but in fact living without waste is possible. Dramatic waste reduction is something each one of us can do - and fast!
