【兒童報訊】野豬及猴子不時亂翻郊野公園附近的垃圾桶,為了減低對民居的影響,漁護署早前在沙田、西貢及灣仔等地區測試三款免滋擾垃圾桶。新設計的垃圾桶增加圍欄及腳踏式上蓋,令野生動物難以推翻或進入垃圾桶內翻找食物。漁護署期望在明年一月增加其他試點。

新款垃圾桶
      新款垃圾桶針對不同動物而設,其中一款垃圾桶增加圍欄,防止野豬推翻;另一款則增設腳踏式上蓋,令猴子難以進入垃圾桶內翻找食物。不過新款垃圾桶也有限制,增設腳踏式上蓋的垃圾桶蓋口比較小,扔掉大型垃圾時需要打開整個上蓋。


Litter bins around country parks are sometimes opened and searched by wild animals such as wild boars and monkeys, etc. This adversely affects the public hygiene of the environment. Some time earlier, Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD) launched a pilot test on three designs of wildliferesistant refuse collection facility in eight districts such as Shatin, Saikung and Wanchai, etc. Additional fencing and lid with foot pedal are put in the newly designed rubbish bins. These create diffi culties for wild animals to push over or enter the bin for food. AFCD expects to increase other pilot locations in January next year.
