Shell does more than fueling journeys on-the-road, we also strive to contribute to the Hong Kong community. According to the report “Monitoring of Solid Waste in Hong Kong - Waste Statistics for 2015” published by the Environmental Protection Department (EPD), the total quantity of solid waste disposal was more than 3.7 million tonnes, which marks the fourth consecutive year of growth. At the same time, the waste recovery rate has been on a declining trend in recent years and dropped to its lowest level.
As the saying goes, the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step, and so Shell is now joining hands with people in Hong Kong to fight the waste problem by making small differences in our everyday habits, by reducing consumption of single-use disposable products.

Participating recycling companies are certified by the government to ensure disposed plastic bottles are truly recycled into useful material and not ending up in the landfills.
