DLN is the architect of the first Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Recycling Facility in Hong Kong: the WEEETRF

The design by DLN aligns with the vision of a low-impact architectural solution that provides both a safe, pleasant and efficient working environment and that serves to demonstrate the government’s commitment to environmentally-friendly and sustainable practice.

To be located in Tuen Mun EcoPark, the facility is designed to process up to 30,000 tonnes of equipment per year. This will include computers, televisions, air-conditioning units and refrigerators, with waste input being recovered as useful raw materials.

A key feature of the project is the provision of a public education centre and visitor gallery that extends through the entire facility and that overlooks each of the WEEE processing areas. Access to the public gallery is via a pedestrian ramp formed on a berm of fill material generated from the excavation works within the site.

Director of DLN Alex Lush said about the project, “This project marks the beginning of a new era in specialized waste management in Hong Kong. Recycling is not just a trend; it is a fundamental responsibility of society to better manage resources and our environmental footprint. We are pleased to be able to contribute towards waste reduction, reuse and recycling and a more sustainable future for our community.”
