    Single use plastic ban / MTR 45th anniversary exhibition

    On Monday's Backchat, we're talking about the ban on single use plastic.

    Starting Monday — which is Earth Day — catering premises will no longer be able to provide disposable expanded polystyrene tableware, which includes single-use plastic straws, stirrers, cutlery, and plates. Plastic cups and food containers will initially be banned for dine-in customers, before a blanket prohibition takes place early next year.
    On top of that, hotel guests can bid farewell to free plastic water bottles, plastic toothbrushes, and small-sized shampoo bottles in their rooms. Lodging establishments will now have to use alternative materials such as paper bottles and wooden toiletries.
    The government hopes this will help reduce waste, and minimise microplastic pollution of landfills and oceans, in line with Hong Kong's ambitions of reaching carbon neutrality by 2050.
    After 9:45, we talk about a public exhibition celebrating the MTR Corporation’s 45th anniversary, with vintage trains on display in Hung Hom.

    Deadly construction accident in West Kowloon / Sangxigdui relics / Asian Games

    主持人:Danny Gittings and Car Ha

    On Thursday's Backchat, we discuss calls to strengthen construction safety, following a tragic accident at an MTRC-managed site where two workers died of suspected biogas inhalation.

    The pair were replacing the air-conditioning cooling pipes of the Elements shopping mall in West Kowloon on Saturday, but failed to return home on time, prompting their relatives to contact the site's operators.
    It was only on the next morning that the two victims were found by paramedics, six metres below ground. They were pronounced dead shortly after.
    How come nobody noticed their presence? What are the regulations like when dealing with underground environments? And how can such accidents be mitigated?
    After 9:40, we learn more about the Sanxingdui relics, displayed at the Hong Kong Palace Museum until January 8.
    At 9:55, we get an update on the Asian Games.
