Three landfills and one incinerator-Lam Chiu-ying

Lam Chiu Ying: Lately, many people have asked if I support the extension of three landfills and construction of an incinerator
Super: Lam Chiu-ying
Adjunct Professor, Department of Geography and Resource Management, the Chinese University of Hong Kong
Lam Chiu Ying: I reply that I am not very supportive of the idea since I am an idealist
Super: Idealism
Lam Chiu Ying: However, the sad truth is that every Hong Konger generates waste, and the quantity of garbage produced amounts to more than 10,000 tonnes per day
Super: 13,000 tonnes
Lam Chiu Ying: Perhaps some magician can make it disappear
So what can we do? Waste reduction at source is easier said than done
Can we actually reduce 90 percent of our waste generation overnight?
I'm at my wits' end coming up with ideas. How about you?
Super: Let’s get down to earth- both waste reduction and waste infrastructure should be implemented.
