Take your litter home

Posted in : Hot off the press on by : Around DB Comments: 0

Bins have been removed from Section Three of the Lantau Trail as part of a government push to stop littering.

 

A government campaign, Take your litter home, is encouraging hikers to take their waste away with them, and thereby play a part in protecting the natural environment of the country parks.

The removal of the bins is part of a one-year trial, with bins also removed at Ma On Shan Country Trail, the Tai Lam Chung Country Trail and the Dragon’s Back (Shek O Country Park).

In addition to an Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department promotional campaign, nature ambassadors will be deployed to remind hikers to dispose of waste outside the country parks, while country park rangers will step up patrols and enforcement.
