“Waste Less” is a mobile app developed by the Environmental Protection Department (EPD) of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. Its primary function is to show nearby collection points for recyclable items via a map on your device, with details, including photos, address, recyclable types, opening hours, etc.

This version does not only cover waste separation bins managed by various government departments as provided in Version 1.0.0, but also collection points for glass bottles, rechargeable batteries, fluorescent lamps, clothes and waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).

Besides, “Waste Less” has the following functions:

- “Search” function to find the most suitable collection points for recyclable items;
- “Clean Recycling” coaches and encourages members of the public to practice some simple steps before recycling;
- “My Recycling Diary” to record their daily recycling efforts;
- “Knowledge” about good waste reduction and recovery practices;
- “Recycling Info” broadcasts news about waste management, reduction and recovery in Hong Kong; and
- “Share” functions to share the contents of this app.

This mobile app has been updated to incorporate with functions of Mobile Apps Accessibility according to “Baseline Accessibility Criteria for Government Mobile App” issued by Office of the Government Chief Information Officer.
