Green Features of re Kiosk

re Kiosk is designed and constructed in a sustainable manner. We are also growing a wide variety of plants, turning the spot into a mini garden with beautiful greenery scene. With sustainability at the heart of the design, it reinforces HKU’s institutional vision, commitments, and goals into all aspects of the University’s facilities, operations and activities.

Plants you may find on the vertical wall, click to see their names.

  • Recycle more
    More types of recyclables will be collected at the new kiosk, such as rechargeable batteries, and different types of plastics other than just bottles and beverage cartons
  • Easy quantification
    The recyclables collected by the kiosk can be evaluated easily so our campus is well prepared for the implementation of the Municipal Solid Waste Charging.
  • As an icon
    The re Kiosk will become the visual icon of HKU’s devotion to be a pioneer in promoting green living.
  • Facilitate waste reduction and recycling
    This large-scale, well-managed and user-friendly recycling site can facilitate waste reduction and recycling support for members of HKU , meaning everyone can contribute easily.
  • Education
    The iconic, all-rounded kiosk is more educative than the scattered recycling bins.
