Legislative Proposals on
Strengthening Regulation of
Recycling of
“Waste Cooking Oils”
1
Regulation on “Waste Cooking Oils”
produced in Food Premises
2
 In the course of cooking and food preparation, “waste
cooking oils”, such as used cooking oil, cooking oil which
has passed its expiry date and grease trap waste, are
generated by restaurants and food factories
 “Waste cooking oils”, if properly recycled, can be
converted into commodities like biofuel and soap. This
helps not just to protect our environment but also prevent
them from being re-used for human consumption or as raw
materials for food production
“Waste Cooking Oils”(WCO)
 Cooking oils abandoned from any cooking process,
regardless whether they have been used for its
original purpose
 Including used cooking oil, cooking oil which has
passed its expiry date and grease trap waste
 Other than those from household
3
Amendments to the Waste Disposal
Ordinance (Cap.354)
 Introduction of licences for the collection, disposal and
import/export of WCO
 Any person, except for holders of a WCO export licence
who exports WCO out of Hong Kong in accordance with
licence conditions, who allows or causes WCO to be sold,
transported, collected or transferred to a party without a
licence granted under the Waste Disposal Ordinance
commits an offence and is liable to a fine/imprisonment
4
Collection of “Waste Cooking Oils”
 WCO collectors must hold a collection licence issued under the
Waste Disposal Ordinance
 Collection of WCO without a licence are liable to a
fine/imprisonment
 WCO will only be sold or handed over to another
collector/disposer/exporter who holds a licence issued under
the Waste Disposal Ordinance
 Keep all transaction and storage records of WCO
5
Disposal of “Waste Cooking Oils”
 WCO disposers must hold a WCO disposal licence issued under
the Waste Disposal Ordinance
 Operations without a licence are liable to a fine/imprisonment
 All disposal facilities in operation must comply with the
applicable permit/licence requirements
 WCO can only be recycled for legitimate industrial re-use
 Keep all transaction, storage and disposal records of WCO
6
Import/Export of “Waste Cooking Oils”
 Importers/exporters of WCO must obtain a WCO
import/export licence issued under the Waste Disposal
Ordinance
 They are also required to obtain a permit issued under the
Waste Disposal Ordinance for all shipments of waste
import/export
 Those who import/export WCO without a licence/permit are
liable to a fine/imprisonment
 Keep all transaction, storage and import/export records of
WCO
7
Administrative Measures
(prior to amendment of Waste Disposal Ordinance)
8
Restaurant and Food Factory Licence
 The Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD)
proposes that an additional licensing condition be imposed
on the food premises operating under a licence for a
restaurant, factory canteen, bakery or food factory
 Any WCO produced during the cooking process on the
licensed premises must be handed over to a collector,
disposer or exporter, who is registered by the Environmental
Protection Department (EPD) and the relevant transaction
records must be kept properly
9
Voluntary Registration
 EPD will accept registration application of WCO collector,
disposer and exporter, the registration is voluntary and free of
charge
 EPD will develop a “Good Practice Guide” to facilitate trade
operations
 Operations of registered parties should comply with the “Good
Practice Guide”, otherwise their registrations may be revoked
