Food Waste Collection Competition 2.0: Encouraging tenants to turn waste into energy
Every day in Hong Kong, up to 15,533 tonnes1 of urban solid waste are discarded, of which over 30% is food waste. This not only places a significant strain on local landfills but also consumes vast amounts of natural resources required for food cultivation. Last year, Fu Tung Market in Tung Chung spearheaded a food waste recycling pilot scheme, which was met with robust support and active participation from various tenants. This year, Link is reintroducing the “Food Waste Collection Competition”, extending its reach to two of its major fresh markets: Lok Fu Market and Tai Yuen Market. The initiative aims not just to engage a broader category of tenants, but also to engage residents from different districts, make them aware of the benefits of food waste recycling, and promote a sustainable eco-friendly lifestyle.
Market expert June Chan Kei launches challenge: Promoting the Green Tenant Reward Scheme
From 1 to 30 November, Lok Fu Market and Tai Yuen Market will host the “Food Waste Collection Competition”. Link will evaluate participating tenants based on the designated scoring system with the following criteria: daily participation, self-motivation, continuity and waste sorting. Tenants who achieve a passing score will win the “Green Tenants” award and will be incentivised with shopping cash vouchers. Starting from March 2024, customers who spend a designated amount at these two markets will receive cash vouchers, which can be redeemed at “Green Tenants”, ensuring benefits for both customers and tenants.
Link is delighted to announce that market expert June Chan Kei will be personally inaugurating the competition at the Lok Fu Market for this special event. The aim is to invigorate the spirits of its tenants and to impart valuable knowledge on the vital significance of food waste recycling. The competition is set to inspire tenants to adopt a structured and systematic approach towards food waste recycling, simultaneously mitigating landfill pressure and transforming waste into valuable regenerated resources.
All the above activities are subject to terms and conditions. The event details are subject to change without prior notice.
