Calls to store paper waste at home amid a waste crisis  Listenfacebook

A waste crisis unfolds as local recycling firms announced they would stop collecting scrap paper for a week to protest against a delay in getting export permits to the mainland. The Green Earth's executive director, Edwin Lau, said the industry should improve the standard of their recyclables. He also told Ben Tse people should help reduce the wastage of paper and store waste at home if possible.
