Hong Kong households and businesses throw away more than 70,000 tonnes of computers and electronic equipment every year. To reduce the amount of electronic waste dumped at the city's landfills, the Environmental Protection Department launched the Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment Recycling Programme, or WEEE, to encourage schools and the community to donate used electrical and electronic equipment to non-governmental organisations.
When winter arrives in Hong Kong, so do tens of thousands of migratory birds. Hong Kong Wetland Park organises the Bird Watching Festival so that visitors can see the birds up close, as they migrate from the north to the south for winter. This year's festival has activities that will introduce people to different bird species' fascinating daily habits.
