Food Waste

According to our waste audit data, HKUST roughly generates 4 tons of food waste every day. To address this, the university has launched food waste collection and recycling program in September 2016 and began at canteens. Later then, the program has since grown to include Junior Staff Quarters and office pantries. During the 2017-18 academic year, we appointed an outside contractor to collect the food waste every day, together with the help of the canteens, students and staff, 305 tons food waste were diverted to animal feeds and compost.
