    Fatal fire in Jordan / Greenpeace's waste-charging trial

    On Friday's Backchat, we're talking about fire safety -- after a blaze in Jordan left five people dead and more than 40 injured on Wednesday.

    Authorities have yet to confirm the cause of the tragedy, but a Fire Services Department spokesperson told RTHK earlier that some of the fire doors were broken, which may have led to heavy smoke in one of the staircases.
    According to a Buildings Department statement, the 60-year-old building had earlier been requested to carry out repair works, which includes the replacement of fire doors, and the provision of protected lobbies for the escape staircase. But the requests have not yet been met.
    How fire compliant are our buildings? What more can be done to improve fire safety?
    After 9:45, we find out more about a green group's waste- charging trial.

    Hong Kong's new garbage bins and recycling subsidies / Hong Kong's falling rankings in reading

    主持人:Danny Gittings and Paul Zimmerman

    On Thursday’s Backchat, we’re discussing recycling after an audit report found that recycling firms applying for the government subsidies may need to wait 18 months for approval.

    Critics say this long delay may make it difficult for embattled recyclers to stay afloat.
    The government also plans to phase out roadside recycling bins and give orange rubbish bins a facelift. The new style rubbish bins will have a smaller opening to try and stop people using them to throw away large items.
    So what we can do to help the local recycling industry? Will the new rubbish bins achieve their purpose? Or will people just dump their garbage directly on the streets instead.
    After 9:45, we talk about Hong Kong’s falling rankings in reading.
