Possible Ways to Reduce EPS Waste

The way to achieve a sustainable waste reduction strategy is to change the community’s wasteful habits. At the same time, we would promote the use of more environmentally friendly replacements such as reusable tableware. Whilst the use of degradable disposable food containers may be more acceptable than that of plastic foam food containers, the priority is still to avoid and reduce the use of disposable products in the first place. We should reduce the amount of EPS waste by the following ways:

For Schools

• Choose to use reusable tableware (such as stainless steel or plastic) for school lunch to replace disposable plastic foam lunch boxes

• Encourage students to bring their own lunch (in reusable tableware)

For Food Suppliers and Restaurants

• Avoid the use of disposable plastic foam containers for in-house consumption

• Supply reusable tableware instead of plastic foam lunch boxes to schools

• Use environmentally friendly food/drink containers and tableware as appropriate replacements for plastic foam products

• Consider providing a discount to customers who bring their own containers to buy take-away food/drink

For Individuals

• Avoid using plastic foam food/drink containers or other disposable products at home or for parties

• Avoid using plastic foam food/drink containers when you dine out in a restaurant

• Bring your own lunch

• Try not to buy products with excessive EPS packaging

Recycle EPS packaging through the programme on Source Separation of Domestic Waste

• Reuse EPS containers, e.g. for potting plant
