It has been uplifting to see how far we have come, and how we have fostered the positioning of Hong Kong as a true Design City—and we know the best is yet to come.

The new community recycling network provides more than 130 collection points for at least 8 common types of recyclables in all 18 districts. Their standard recycling receptacles fit various sizes of the recyclables, and are easily recognisable in different colours. With ‘Green’ as the concept, its logo design is consistent with the prefix ‘G’, and features the homophonic number ‘6’ in Cantonese. The visual identity signifies the meaning of going green in an endless cycle.
