Supplementary notes

(1) Some types of special waste may not arise and be disposed of daily throughout the whole year. The average daily quantity is obtained by dividing the total amount of waste disposed of at landfills in the whole year by the number of days in the whole year.
(2) Clinical waste is incinerated at CWTC except during normal maintenance or emergency shut-down maintenance of the incineration treatment system for more than two days. During the shutdown, clinical waste is packed and transferred to designated landfill for disposal in accordance with the Clinical Waste Disposal License of CWTC.
(3) Dewatered sludges originate from sewage treatment works managed by the Drainage Services Department, wastewater treatment facilities and grease trap waste treatment facility at refuse transfer stations managed by the EPD, and private sewage treatment plants. Except that dewatered sludge from major sewage treatment works managed by Drainage Services Department is treated by incineration at T ▪ PARK, other dewatered sludges are disposed of at WENT and NENT Landfills.
(4) In 2017, the generation of livestock waste amounted to 160 tpd, out of which 65 tpd were disposed of at landfills. Livestock waste disposed of at landfills mainly include the livestock waste collected by the free collection service for solid livestock waste provided to local livestock farmers by the Government. The remaining livestock waste was treated by other environmentallyacceptable means such as on-site composting, aerobic treatment, and dry muck-out.
(5) Waste tyres are shredded or cut prior to disposal at landfills.
