    Hong Kong produces around 3,380 tonnes of food waste per day, but landfill space is fast running out.

    To tackle the problem, the government is building an incinerator and an organic waste plant.

    Charities such as Feeding Hong Kong are also playing a role by redistributing leftovers to people in need.
