Summary of Regulation

HKBR provides the most comprehensive solution by treating all WLAB collected in Hong Kong Ecopark, ensuring full traceability  of your WLAB, which are 100% locally processed and recycled, and in compliance with all relevant rules and regulation:

  1. Hong Kong Regulation
    • Waste Disposal (Chemical Waste) Regulation
    • Criminal offence to breach
    • Penalty includes fine and imprisonment
  2. Basel Convention
    • Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and their disposal
    • International treaty designed to reduce the movements of hazardous waste between nations
    • The Basel Ban prohibits the shipments of hazardous wastes from developed countries to developing countries. The Basel Ban was incorporated in the Waste Disposal Ordinance in April 2006 as the Laws of Hong Kong
  3. Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) Disclosure Requirement
    • The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong (“HKEX”): “Comply or Explain”
    • Disclosure requirement is expected to become more stringent going forward

Recycling is by far the preferred option vs. landfill disposal (no longer allowed) and export, the main “official” channels in Hong Kong due to lack of alternatives.  HKBR looks forward to providing the best WLAB disposal option for Hong Kong LAB users.
