Student Staff

Mr Harold Yip

12 Apr 2022

3:30 pm to 5:00pm


Among the 2,600 tonnes of paper produced In Hong Kong every day, only 29% was eventually recycled. Is recycling sustainable, both for the environment and the business itself? Mr. Harold Yip, the founder of Mil Mill, Hong Kong’s first pulp mill that recycles beverage cartons, will give us an overview of the local recycling industry and share his own experience of turning waste paper into toilet rolls and paper towels. What is behind the 'Made in HK’ recycled toilet rolls? How can the recycling industry be innovative? Join this seminar and discuss circular economy inside the recycling industry with Harold!

Mr Harold Yip is a strong believer in sustainability and circular economy. In 2009, he founded a waste management company specialising in office wastes. With the support of the Recycling Fund, he established Mil Mill in 2019.
