    Like many other areas of the world, Hong Kong is drowning in waste.  In February 2014,  Sepia Design Consultants Limited created and proposed a neighborhood recycling center prototype to community leaders and the HKSAR Government.  Instead of the current system of refuse collection centers throughout Hong Kong, which involves direct transport of waste to the territory’s three overflowing landfills, this proposal proposes the creation of new one-stop satellite recycling and recovery centers at the community level, in order to divert as much material as possible away from the landfills.
