About The Event

Calls to reduce, reuse and recycle in Hong Kong have never been stronger. At the start of 2022, it was estimated that over 100 million pieces of plastic items had been used and disposed of by hotel quarantine guests alone. It has been predicted that by 2030, Hong Kong will be sending 4.2 billion single-use takeaway containers to landfill every year.

 V Cycle’s, Learn about recycling!” empowers Hongkongers to correctly recycle their single-use plastic and re-think the impact of their everyday choices.  Volunteers are invited to experience the recycling process at the V Cycle factory.  

SDGs V Cycle Stands For:

  • Goal 1: No Poverty
  • Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production
  • Goal 17: Partnerships for the Goals

Volunteer roles:  You will take part in a 45-minute briefing and tour before directly supporting the factory's recycling process, helping alongside elderly  former cardboard collectors employed by V Cycle to sort plastic recyclables —giving each of them dignified work.

Date: April 22

Time: 9:30am - 11:30am

Location: 1FL, Room L&K, Wai Cheung Industrial Building, 5 Shek Pai Tau Road, Tuen Mun
