Tsang calls for more recycling Hong Kong needs to extend its landfills, develop new waste facilities, and reduce and recycle as much waste as possible, Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen said. Inspecting the New Territories landfill in Tuen Mun yesterday, the chief executive said using only landfills for the disposal of municipal solid waste was not a sustainable solution. Food licences to be streamlined The government is planning to streamline the licensing process for manufacturers and retailers of ready-to-eat food items. The move would see the introduction of a composite licence that would cover up to 16 food items such as sushi and sashimi, soft ice cream and frozen confections. Free use of leisure centres To mark the Beijing Olympics, the government announced that members of the public can use the leisure facilities, water sports centres and holiday camps under the management of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department for free between July 1 and September 30. Booking procedures will remain unchanged.
