Event Details

While most Hong Kong people are busy with work every day, they do not realize that the surrounding environment has been gradually threatened by “Environmental Monsters”! Do you want to see our Old & Valuable Trees (OVTs), crystal clear streams and fresh air slowly disappears?

Rules of Orienteering

“Plastic Trasher” has been polluting our country parks with garbage and threatening the local ecological environment.  Each Eco-Ranger (individual/group) will utilize compasses and orienteering maps to hunt down the “Plastic Trasher” while cleaning up our countryside within a 2 hour limit.

Scoring Method:

  1. Points will be awarded against time and strategies as an orienteering competition
  2. Gather wastes from a designated number of “Plastic Trasher” control points (each team is only allowed to gather ONE piece of trash on a 1st-come-1st-served basis) and recycle them via recycling bins established at the event centre to earn bonus points

The team who earns the highest score within the given time limit wins. Teams that finish outside the given time limit will have their score deducted accordingly. Should there be a tie with more than one team having the same score, the team with the lesser time wins.
