Greenpeace China has produced, together with the Institute for Local Self Reliance, a report recommending that Hong Kong radically change the focus of its system for handling discarded materials.  The report "Zero Waste: Replacing Waste Management with Discards Management in Hong Kong" provides a blueprint for zero waste in Hong Kong.  Critical component include programs and policies designed to:
- reduce generation of discards
- increase product reuse and repair
- create source separation systems for domestic, commercial and industrial discards and construction and demolition debris
- establish an efficient collection system for separated materials
- support processing and marketing creation for recyclables
- create composting systems for organic materials
