3.3.2 Legislation in other countries Some countries such as Japan have effectively promoted green technologies

and recycling technologies, while other countries have a long history of dealing with

tyre waste. Through government websites we were able to identify their laws, which

affect tyre waste. We studied Japan's legislative system due to similarities with Hong

Kong that include a geographically isolated area with a high population and severely

limited land. We included the United States due to their experience with the tyre

waste, even though the similarities with Hong Kong are few. The European Union,

including Britain, has extensive legislation in place governing the disposal and

recycling of waste tyres. This system was also studied and contrasted against the other

regions and countries.

3.4 Summary Once the scale of the scrap tyre problem was determined, appropriate

management methods were considered, and the legislation and policy that would be

required to implement those methods was examined. We reviewed all of the current

methods of disposal and recycling of scrap tyres in Hong Kong. We also looked at the

methods for scrap tyre disposal and recycling used in different countries. These

solutions work within the laws and regulations of the individual countries. In the next

section we will discuss the methods that would work within the laws and regulations

of Hong Kong.
