Appendix II: Other Problem Areas by Village
Tai Peng Old Village
The refuse collection point at Tai Peng Old Village is a mess. Rubbish is often placed outside the bin area, even when the bins themselves are not full.
The recycling bins are next to the refuse collection point, not part of the bin area. Rubbish is often placed next to the bins and often this cannot be recycled.
Even when bags of rubbish are cleared from the bin area, waste is still left behind.
Responsibility: FEHD. Can we redesign all the bin areas on Lamma to make them fit for use? The bin areas should be large enough and include sections for different types of waste. The outside should be landscaped to make them attractive.
Cardboard, plastic and other materials behind the refuse collection point at Tai Peng Old Village.
Disused shack with a variety of waste next to the refuse collection point at Tai Peng Old Village.
Responsibility: Is this on private land? Could Living Lamma organize a clean up of this area with the owner’s permission? What happens if the owner cannot be found? If a clean up is organized, what is the best way to manage this?
Rusty metal, old fencing and various household and construction waste next to the shack (above).
Responsibility: Can we get the assistance of government departments to find out who is responsible for this?

Broken washing machine, table, and various other household items left behind next to house adjacent to the cable road at Tai Peng Old Village (past the public toilets, take the path to the left and it’s the last house on the left)
Responsibility: This is likely to be private land, but the rubbish is clearly visible from the path (part of HK Electric’s Green Lamma Green walks). How can we encourage people to dispose of things responsibly?
From the house above, cross over the cable road and take the path ahead. There is a huge amount of rubbish that has been dumped into the undergrowth on the right-hand side of this path.
Responsibility: EPD, Lands Department

Responsibility: FEHD. Can a properly landscaped bin area be made here? At present, bins are emptied but a lot of rubbish is left behind.
Construction waste left behind in the undergrowth after the renovation of the public toilets at Tai Peng Old Village.
Responsibility: Lands Department? Or FEHD? This is a typical problem on Lamma. Often contractors do not clear up properly. Along with construction waste, cigarette packets and butts, plastic bottles and cans are often tossed into the undergrowth. What can be done to stop this?
More bins at Tai Peng Old Village, with an abandoned pushchair tossed into the undergrowth.
Responsibility: FEHD. The bin areas for each village should be evaluated and redesigned with the aim of encouraging people to dispose of their unwanted items in the right place.
