South Lantau Coastal Cleanup – 17 Feb

2 Feb


Start the Year of the Pig by doing something good for the environment!

After typhoon Mangkhut devastated large areas of Hong Kong last year, the city is still recovering in its wake, especially secluded coastal areas.

You will be leaving Mui Wo ferry pier at 9 am to take the bus to Shui Hau beach. The cleanup will start there at 10 am continuing till around 1 pm. After that you are welcome to join Waste Free HK for a light hike across Lantau to enjoy some of the sights the beautiful island has to offer.

There will be fun and games during the cleanup, with prizes for the best and most interesting objects found!

There will be music and people are welcome to bring their own drinks and snacks. Please try to either bring reusable packaging or things that can be easily recycled (glass and metal).

Come along, have a great time, all while doing something good for Hong Kong!

Date: Sunday, 17 February 2019

Time: 10am – 1pm

Place: Mui Wo ferry pier at 9 am

    I’d like to sign up for the South Lantau Cleanup event on 17 Feb. The registration link does not allow me to proceed. Do I need to enter a dollar amount for the ticket?

      Thank you very much for bringing it to my attention. I did not notice that. Apparently, Waste Free HK requires a donation to participate in this event. It can be as little as $1 and the system will allow you to register.
