SwedCham Hong Kong is inviting members to join them on a field trip to Alba WEEE PARK. Although it may sound like a theme park filled with rollercoasters, WEEE PARK actually stands for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Treatment and Recycling Facility.

This is what SwedCham writes about ALBA:
