1.1.1       This Waste Management Plan is prepared for Contract HY/2011/03 Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge Hong Kong Link Road – Section between Scenic Hill and Hong Kong Boundary Facilities (“the Contract”) for the Highways Department of HKSAR.   The Contract is part of the Hong Kong – Zhuhai – Macao Bridge Hong Kong Link Road (HKLR) Project and Hong Kong – Zhuhai – Macao Bridge Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities (HKBCF), these projects are considered to be “Designated Projects”, under Schedule 2 of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Ordinance (Cap 499) and Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Reports (Register No. AEIAR-144/2009 and AEIAR-145/2009) were prepared for the Project.  The current Environmental Permit (EP) EP-352/2009/A for HKLR and EP-353/2009/D for HKBCF were issued on 31 October 2011 and 7 March 2012, respectively. These documents are available through the EIA Ordinance Register.

1.1.2       Condition 2.12 of EP-352/2009/A and Condition 2.10 of EP-353/2009/D state: “The Permit Holder shall deposit with the Director, at least one month before the commencement of the construction of the project, three hard copies and one electronic copy of a waste management plan (WMP) for the construction stage of the Project.  The WMP shall describe the arrangements for avoidance, reuse, recovery and recycling, storage, collection, treatment and disposal of different categories of waste to be generated from the construction activities and shall include the recommended mitigation measures on waste management in the EIA Report.  The WMP shall indicate the disposal location(s) of all surplus excavated spoil and other waste.  A trip ticket system (TTS) shall be included in the WMP. Surplus excavated spoil and other wastes shall only be disposed of at designated disposal locations unless otherwise approved by the Director.  All measures recommended in the WMP shall be fully and properly implemented by the Permit Holder and any person working on the Project throughout the construction period.

1.2.1       This WMP applies to the works undertaken by China State Construction Engineering Hong Kong Ltd. (CSHK) for the Contract.  A Site Location Plan is provided as Appendix A.   The works include:

l  New reclamation along the east coast of the Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA), approximately 23 hectares.

l  Tunnel SHT from Scenic Hill to the new reclamation, of approximately 1km in length with three (3) lanes for the east bound carriageway heading to the HKBCF and four (4) lanes for the westbound carriageway heading to the Hong Kong Zhuhai Macao Bridge (HZMB) Main Bridge.

l  An abutment of the viaduct portion of the HKLR at the west portal of Tunnel SHT and associated road works at the west portal of Tunnel SHT.

l  An at grade road on the new reclamation along the east coast of the HKIA to connect with the Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities (HKBCF), of approximately 1.6 km along dual 3-lane carriageway with hard shoulder for each bound.

l  Road links between the HKBCF and the HKIA including new roads and the modification of existing roads at the HKIA, involving viaducts, at grade roads and a Tunnel HAT.

l  A highway operation and maintenance area (HMA) located on the new reclamation, south of the Dragonair Headquarters Building, including the construction of buildings, connection roads and other associated facilities.

l  Associated civil, structural, building, geotechnical, marine, environmental protection, landscaping, drainage and sewerage, tunnel and highway electrical and mechanical works, together with the installation of street lightings, traffic aids and sign gantries, water mains and fire hydrants, provision of facilities for installation of traffic control and surveillance system (TCSS), reprovisioning works of affected existing facilities, implementation of transplanting, compensatory planting and protection of existing trees, and implementation of an environmental monitoring and audit (EM&A) program.

1.3.1       This WMP will describe the arrangements for avoidance, minimization, handling, reuse, recovery and recycling, storage, transportation, collection, treatment and disposal of the different categories of waste that are expected to be generated during the construction activities of the Contract.  This WMP includes the recommended mitigation measures on waste management that are contained in the EIA report and EM&A manual.

1.3.2       The main objectives of this WMP are to:

l  Provide reference to the applicable environmental legislation and guidelines pertaining to waste management.

l  Clarify each party’s responsibilities regarding waste management, and identify the personnel from each party that are assigned these responsibilities and their respective role on the Contract.

l  Establish waste management practices and treatment procedures, for the avoidance, minimization, material reuse/recovery/recycling, collection, transportation, storage and disposal of wastes that are generated during the course of the Contract that are specified by the EP and the implementation of the mitigation measures that are outlined in the EIA report.

1.4.1       An Environmental Policy has been established by CSHK to outline guidance, technical information, and instructions to designated personnel who will be responsible for the management of site environmental issues, and to ensure that all statutory and contractual environmental requirements and the Company Environmental Policy are followed.  In addition, CSHK will create an Environmental Management Team (EMT) for establishing and implementing effective and efficient environmental protection procedures for the Contractor.

1.4.2       The Environmental Policy Statement, together with the Environmental Objectives and Targets, are listed below in the CSHK Environmental Policy:


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 


1.5.1       CSHK aims to recover, avoid and minimize the construction waste generated on site by utilizing the hierarchy illustrated below.  This attempts to evaluate waste management practices and selects the best practical option since conceptually it makes sense to avoid producing a waste rather than developing extensive treatment schemes.  Through good planning, and effective site management practices, CSHK will minimise the amount of construction waste that is generated.  The objective of CSHK is to reduce and minimize the amount of wastes generated and hence minimise the costs associated with subsequent waste handling and disposal.

http://www.epd.gov.hk/epd/misc/cdm/images/mana3.gif

1.6.1       During the course of the Contract, it is anticipated that various types of waste will be generated.  Each distinct waste type will require a different approach for the effective management and disposal as stipulated in the applicable legislation and guidelines.

Statutory Requirements

1.6.2       The following legislation relates to the handling, treatment and disposal of waste in Hong Kong:

l  The Waste Disposal (Amendment) Ordinance (WDO) (Cap 354). 

l  The Waste Disposal (Chemical Waste) (General) Regulation (Cap 354). 

l  The Waste Disposal (Charges for Disposal of Construction Waste) Regulation.

l  The Land (Miscellaneous Provisions) Ordinance (Cap 28).

l  The Dumping at Sea Ordinance (Cap 466).

l  The Public Health and Municipal Services Ordinance (Cap 132) - Public Cleansing and Prevention of Nuisances (Urban Council) and (Regional Council) By-Laws.

l  Summary Offences Ordinance (Cap 228).

l  Other relevant regulations.

1.6.3       The WDO prohibits the unauthorized disposal of waste.  Construction waste is not directly defined in the WDO, but is considered to fall within the category of “trade waste”.  Under the WDO, wastes can only be disposed of at sites licensed by the Environmental Protection Department (EPD).

1.6.4       Under the WDO and the Charging Regulation, wastes can only be disposed of at designated waste disposal facilities that are licensed by the EPD.  For construction work with a value of more than HK$1M, the main contractor is required to establish a billing account at the EPD before transporting the construction waste to the designated waste disposal facilities (e.g. landfill, public fill etc.).  The vessels for delivering construction waste to a public fill reception facility would need prior approval from EPD.  Breach of these regulations can lead to a fine and/or imprisonment.

1.6.5       Under the  Waste  Disposal (Chemical Waste) (General) Regulation all producers of chemical wastes (including asbestos) must register with the EPD and treat their wastes either utilizing on-site plant licensed by the EPD, or arranging for a licensed collector transport the wastes to an appropriately licensed facility.  The regulation also prescribes the storage facilities to be provided on site, including labelling and warning signs, and requires the preparation of written procedures and training to deal with emergencies such as spillages, leakages, or accidents arising from the storage of chemical wastes.

1.6.6       The current policy related to the dumping of construction and demolition (C&D) material is documented in the Works Branch Technical Circular No. 2/93, ‘Public Dumps’.  C&D materials that are wholly inert, namely public fill, should not be disposed of at landfill, but should be taken to public filling areas, which usually form part of reclamation schemes.

1.6.7       The Land (Miscellaneous Provisions) Ordinance requires that dumping licenses be obtained by individuals or companies who deliver public fill to public filling areas.  The Civil Engineering & Development Department (CEDD) issues the licenses under delegated powers from the Director of Lands.

1.6.8       Under the Dumping at Sea Ordinance, a permit from the EPD is required if any waste generator intends to dump materials at sea.  Cross boundary disposal of waste is also possible for this contract under permit issued by the State Oceanic Administration PRC (SAO).

1.6.9       The Public Cleansing and Prevention of Nuisances By-Laws provide further controls on the illegal tipping of wastes on unauthorized (unlicensed) sites.

1.6.10    The Contractor is required to obtain all necessary permits and licenses under these ordinances including, but not limited to:

l  Chemical waste permits/licenses under the Waste Disposal Ordinance (Cap 354).

l  Public Dumping License under the Land (Miscellaneous Provisions) Ordinance (Cap 28).

l  The Dumping at Sea Ordinance (Cap 466).

3              Site Specific Waste Management

3.1.1       The key to successful waste management is undertaking proactive measures to reduce the amount of waste generated.  Waste management options will be exercised in accordance with the hierarchy outlined in Table 2 below:


 

Table 2: Hierarchy of Waste Management

Waste Management Option

Required Actions

Avoidance / Reduction / Minimization

Avoid the generation of excessive waste by planning and scheduling material deliveries.

Minimize the amount of waste generated through careful planning and design, before commencing the contract.

 

Re-use

Where appropriate and practicable, construction materials such as timber formwork, metal, etc, and any spoil generated during excavation work should be re-used onsite.

 

Recovery and Recycling

Recyclable construction materials such as plastics and metal will be recovered, sorted and stored onsite in containers.  The containers will be transported off site for recycling at an approved facility.

Regularly serviced, covered recycling containers will be provided for the use of the onsite workforce.

 

Treatment and Disposal

All waste removed from the site requiring treatment and/or disposal will be transported to an approved facility.

 

 

3.1.2       To achieve waste reduction, environmentally responsible purchasing would involve the introduction of practices that discourage unnecessary purchases and encourage the purchase of products or materials that can be found locally, that have reduced packaging or recyclable packaging, increased durability and materials with recycled content, such as, recycled paper, steel, concrete and other raw construction materials.

3.1.3       Waste minimization is best achieved through the use of careful planning, design and close supervision.  It is expected that, following good waste management practices on site will result in a reduction of the amount waste being generated.  To minimize the wastage of raw materials that are delivered to the site, good management, estimation and planning techniques will be required.

3.2.1       In order to determine whether the waste management procedures used by CSHK are effective, the following specific targets will be implemented onsite in an effort to reduce the generation of waste materials, and thus minimize the amount of waste requiring disposal at landfill:

l  All excavated material will be sorted on site to recover the inert portion of construction and demolition debris materials, such as hard rock, soil and broken concrete, for subsequent re-use on site or disposal to designated outlets.

l  Recover and store all metallic waste (e.g. scrap metal) for subsequent collection by a recycling contractor and recycling at an approved facility.

l  Recover all cardboard and/or paper packaging (for plant, equipment and materials) will be stored in covered stockpiles (to keep dry and prevent contamination) for subsequent collection and recycling at an approved facility.

l  All chemical waste that is generated on site (e.g. servicing of plant) will be stored for collection and disposal at an approved disposal facility.

l  All demolition debris will be sorted on site to recover broken concrete, reinforcement bars, mechanical and electrical fittings, hardware as well as other recyclable fittings for subsequent recycling at an approved facility.

l  To minimize the use of timber during construction, recyclable metal formwork and hoarding will be used where practicable.

3.3.1       CSHK designate suitable areas onsite for the storage, sorting and segregation of construction waste.  The areas that are designated by CSHK will be clearly defined with appropriate signage and barriers (or similar) and allow for easy access by workers and vehicles.  As the project progresses it is anticipated that the designated areas will be reviewed depending upon construction program requirements.  The areas designated by CSHK will be sufficient for the amounts of construction waste that are anticipated to be generated during the course of the contract.  Table 3 below shows the actions that will be taken for each type of construction waste generated onsite.

3.4.1       For imported fill materials, CSHK will seek the SO’s approval prior to acceptance of such materials from other site(s).  To ensure that the fill materials are imported from approved site(s) and to avoid the potential for illegal disposal of such materials, a tracking system for imported material will be developed by CSHK.  The tracking system will be submitted to the SO for approval before commencing importation of material to the site.

3.4.2       In order to confirm that the material that is imported to the site complies with the requirements for General Filling material, as stipulated in the General Specification for Civil Engineering Works, representative material samples will be collected for analysis by an approved laboratory.  The sampling and testing will be conducted at the material source, to confirm its compliance with the requirements.  The test results will be provided for verification and/or approval by the Supervising Office (SO) and the IEC before the material is allowed to be imported to the site.

3.4.3       The target fine content of sand fill in the WMP shall not exceed 5% when placed onsite.  The target maximum level of the fine content of the public fill material will be below 25%.

3.4.4       CSHK will report to the Environmental Team Leader (ETL), IEC/ENPO the anticipated daily filling rate for the coming month at least a week before the calendar month (or the reporting period of the Monthly EM&A Report).  Similarly, CSHK will report to ETL, IEC/ENPO the actual daily fill import rate and filling rate within about 2 weeks after the end of the last calendar month (or the reporting period of the Monthly EM&A Report).

Design, Construction and Operation of Sorting Facilities and Barge Points

3.4.5       The delivery of imported materials as part of the reclamation to a formation level of +5.0mPD is estimated to commence in July 2013.  In order to achieve this formation level the required daily handling rate of imported material is outlined in Table 4 below.  The proposed sorting facilities together with barge points have been designed to meet this production.

Use of Public Fill from Fill Banks and Projects of MTRCL as Source Material

3.4.6       CSHK will utilize our barges to collect the fill material from designated barge points.

3.4.7       Owing to the available sorting facilities, the supply quantities of public fill will be constant and sorted to the most suitable for reclamation purposes.  CSHK will closely coordinate with the contractors of barging points regarding the schedule of barge for collection of public fill and the site conditions of the loading facilities to ensure smooth progress of loading and transporting of public fill to the site.

Delivery Program for the Collection, Sorting, and Transportation of Public Fill Material

3.4.8       In order to achieve the daily fill rates outlined in Table 4, CSHK will deploy a total of twelve (12) barges.  Details of the barges are outlined in the table below:

3.5.1       The construction of the tunnels will require excavation of marine sediments.  The excavated sediments will then be disposed of once a Loading / Dumping permit has been acquired.  In order to apply for the permit a Sediment Quality Report (which will be duly updated to extend its reliability period) will be required, however, as the program of works calls for reclamation before excavation, the permit will be acquired after the reclamation has been stabilised.  The estimated volume of marine sediment requiring excavation is outlined in Table 9 below (subject to permanent design by Atkins China Ltd):

3.5.2       In accordance to the Sediment Quality Report (“SQR”), the marine sediments will be classified into different categories based upon test results, and the categories will determine whether the sediments can be disposed of locally or by cross-boundary disposal to the Mainland.  Marine sediments that fall into categories Mf and H will need to be disposed of at the designated disposal site in Hong Kong.  Marine sediments that fall into categories L and Mp will need to be disposed of at the designated disposal facilities in Hong Kong or at a cross-boundary facility. According to Marine Fill Committee’s (MFC) memo Ref (0RD1Z-01) in FM 4/1C/65 Pt.20, MFC has agreed to allocate marine disposal spaces to HyD for the Category L/Mp/Mf/Hp sediments arising from the HKLR project.  However, as the current SQR expired in July 2012, the SQR will need to be updated.  Details of the disposal requirements for marine sediment will be subject to the updated SQR.  Given that reclamation work is scheduled to take place before the excavation/ work it is proposed to carry out the reclamation work prior to the updating of the SQR.

4.1.1       The waste that is generated during the construction process will be disposed of at designated disposal facilities.  Monthly summaries of the amount of waste material disposed of offsite will be provided to the SO in the form of a Waste Flow Table (WFT).  The summaries will indicate the estimated quantities of waste removed the types of materials removed and the corresponding disposal ground in the WFT.

4.1.2       The quantities of C&D material disposed of will be recorded under the barcode TTS by using the CHIT / DDF (for disposal of C&D Materials at Disposal Grounds (Other than Prescribed Facilities) as designated in the Contract or as Directed by the SO, or Alternative Disposal Grounds Proposed by the Contractor and Approved by the SO).  In addition, a completed “CHIT” will also be presented to the receiving facility as part of the system for the disposal charging scheme which became officially effective in January 2006.  Waste transaction records could be obtained either from the waste disposal facilities directly, or retrieved from the EPD bill statement each month.

4.2.1       According to the Highways Department’s Memo ref. (2NQ9) in Highways Department 7/10/1 dated 15 July 2010.  The new waste acceptance criteria (WAC) (as tabulated below) became effective from 29 December 2010.

l  The SO is allowed to enter the alternative facility to conduct an inspection when necessary.

l  The estimated quantity and type of C&D materials to be used in the construction works and the approximate delivery program, together with the name, post and specimen signature of the competent person to sign the DDF / internal trip ticket.

4.6.3       Where the alternative disposal facility is a private facility but not a construction site, CSHK will submit a letter from the relevant authorities, such as the Lands Department and Planning Department, to confirm the suitability of the alternative disposal facility to receive the proposed amount of C&D materials for use, and a written consent from the landowner.

4.6.4       Where the alternative disposal facility is a government project, CSHK will submit written consent from the project office of the alternative disposal facility to use the C&D materials generated from the Site, and to confirm the estimated quantity and type of C&D materials required and the approximate delivery programme.

4.6.5       A system for transmitting disposal records from the alternative disposal ground will be submitted to the SO for approval before disposal to the alternative ground starts.

4.7.1       CSHK has been registered as Chemical Waste Producer.  Chemical waste that is generated, as defined by Schedule 1 of the Waste Disposal (Chemical Waste) (General) Regulation, will be handled in accordance with the Code of Practice on the Packaging, Labelling and Storage of Chemical Wastes as follows:

Packaging

4.7.2       Chemical waste will be packed and held in containers of suitable design and construction so as to prevent leakage, spillage or escape of the contents under normal conditions of handling, storage and transport.

4.7.3       Containers used for the storage of chemical wastes will:

l  Be suitable for the substance they are holding, resistant to corrosion, maintained in a good condition, and securely closed.

l  Have a capacity of less than 450 litres unless the specifications have been approved by the EPD.

l  Display a label in English and Chinese in accordance with instructions prescribed in Schedule 2 of the Regulations.

Labelling

4.7.4       Every container of chemical waste will bear an appropriate label which with details of the chemical waste.  The waste producer will ensure that the information contained on the label is accurate and sufficient so as to enable proper and safe handling, storage and transport of the chemical waste.

Storage

4.7.5       The storage area will be specially constructed and bunded, and located close to the source of waste generation.  The storage area for chemical wastes will:

l  Be clearly labelled and used solely for the storage of chemical waste.

l  Be enclosed on at least three (3) sides.

l  Have an impermeable floor and bunding of sufficient capacity to accommodate 110% of the volume of the largest container or 20% of the total volume of waste stored in that area, whichever is the greatest.

l  Have adequate ventilation.

l  Be covered to prevent rainfall entering (water collected with the bund must be tested and disposed of as chemical waste).

l  Be arranged so that incompatible materials are adequately separated.

l  Before reaching 80% capacity of the storage container, licensed waste collectors will be contracted to remove the chemical waste.

Transportation and Disposal

4.7.6       After the chemical wastes have been packed, labelled, and stored, the chemical wastes will be transported by licensed waste collectors and disposed of at Chemical Waste Treatment Facility in Tsing Yi or other approved facilities.

4.8.1       Measures to be implemented to encourage general waste avoidance / minimization include:

l  Reducing the number of photocopies to a minimum and copying on both sides of paper for internal documents and external documents where appropriate.

l  Preventing over-ordering of office equipment and consumables.

l  Procuring energy efficient office equipment and consumables.

l  Deploying and servicing recycling containers on site to facilitate collection of recyclables (e.g. aluminum cans, plastic bottles).

l  Deploying containers with covers onsite to facilitate the collection of non-recyclables for disposal at landfills.

l  General refuse generated from working vessels and barges will be collected into temporary waste collection points.

l  Working vessels for import fill or delivery should be handled by themselves.

l  There will be waste containers on the working vessels for the collection of waste.  In the event that refuse is found on the water, CSHK will collect the refuse on an as needed basis.

4.9.1       Sewage waste will be generated from amenity facilities used by the construction workforce and site office’s sanitary facilities.  Night soil from chemical toilets will also be generated.  The sludge needs to be properly managed to minimise odour and potential health risks to the workforce by attracting pests and other disease vectors.

4.9.2       The peak number of construction workers anticipated to on site by CSHK is to be about 500 staff.  As the workers will be scattered within the construction site, the most cost-effective solution will be to provide adequate number of portable toilets within the site to ensure that sewage from site staff is properly collected.  CSHK will ensure adequate numbers of portable toilets for the workforce and ensure no adverse water impacts by contracting with licensed contractors to maintain the facilities.

4.10.1    Before starting the transportation of recyclable materials off site to recycling facilities, CSHK will meet with recycling contractors to establish a suitable system for collecting recyclable materials with care.

4.11            Estimate Quantities of C&D Material/Waste
