Housing plan will help protect environment  Listenfacebook
Paul Zimmerman from Designing Hong Kong says he agrees that a government plan to build 28,000 flats south of Yuen Long could help to protect the environment in the area. He says the brownfield sites there are not doing any good for the surroundings. Zimmerman also says he's not worried about the development infringing on the Tai Lam Country Park as only one particular area of the housing plan will be near it. He spoke to Annemarie Evans.
Government urged to monitor recycling bins  Listenfacebook
An environmental group has urged the government to start removing four-in-one recycling bins from the city's streets and to place them in government buildings so that staff can supervise people using them. This comes after a recent study Greeners Action carried out found recycling facilities around the city are overflowing with rubbish, rather than items that can be put to good use. The group said it rummaged through 23 recycling bins in 14 districts and found less than 40 percent of the contents were actually recyclable. Greeners Action's assistant project manager Man Yip spoke to Timmy Sung.
