Minimization and Management of Refurbishment and Renovation Waste in Hong Kong



In 2017 in Hong Kong, the construction industry disposed of an average of about 4,000 tonnes of construction and demolition waste at landfills per day.  10 to 20% of the waste comes from refurbishment and renovation of existing buildings.

In this webinar Dr. Ann YU (PI), and Mr Kelvin S.H MOK, run through their detailed investigation on the processes of refurbishment and renovation projects to identify the difficulties in reducing waste generated in Hong Kong.  After consultation with building professionals, building contractors, recycling contractors, scholars and government officials in two focus group meetings, six proposals were refined and recommended to the Government for promoting effective refurbishment/renovation waste management.

CIOB Conservation Conference

New ideas for tough times

The theme of this year's annual conference is balancing conservation needs against rising costs. It is ideal for professionals involved in historic or traditional buildings as well as homeowners who are embarking on their own project.

We have drawn together leading experts from the UK and Europe who will give delegates the inside track on how these projects were successfully delivered and how they can apply what was learned to their own decision making.
