HoHoSkips service further extended

December 1, 2022

The HoHoSkips service for construction waste collection and recycling was extended to Hong Kong Island, Kwun Tong, Tseung Kwan O and Tuen Mun from today, the Environmental Protection Department announced.


Members of the public and the renovation trade can book the service via the HoHoSkips mobile app to arrange the collection of small quantities of construction waste generated from renovation works in these districts for recycling.


Having the support of the Recycling Fund, the department launched the trade-led pilot scheme on collection and recycling of construction waste in early 2021, with the first project rolled out in Sham Shui Po District.


Through the setting up of convenient collection points and provision of the booking service via the HoHoSkips app, the renovation trade and the public are provided with a convenient, time-saving and efficient construction waste collection service.


Since December 2021, the service has been extended to cover 10 districts in Kowloon and the New Territories.


With the reduction of transportation and disposal costs through bulk transfer and segregation of waste, the HoHoSkips service providers only charge $71 per tonne of recyclable inert construction waste and $200 per tonne of non-inert construction waste.


The department expects that the cost-effectiveness of the service would be further enhanced by encouraging more practitioners in the trade to use the service.
