Recycling takes little effort on your part,
but makes a BIG DIFFERENCE to the world 

Make a difference


Recycling plays an important role in helping to reduce waste generation and giving materials a second lease of life. It also helps to conserve natural resources, reducing the need for mining, deforestation etc. However, recycling right is crucial in ensuring that recyclables are not contaminated, and that the efforts of others are not wasted (SustainableSG, 2022).


In Singapore, the domestic recycling rate in 2022 fell to 12% – the lowest in more than a decade – because less paper, cardboard, textile and leather were exported for recycling (NEA, 2023).

Collectively, we can play a part in conserving our resources and energy, as well as protect our environment.

Where to Recycle

There are more than 8000 recycling bins in residential estates all over Singapore! They are nearer than you know!

40% of what we place inside the blue recycling bins are not suitable for recycling. 

That's because these items are either contaminated with food and liquids, or made of materials that can't be recycled at all. 

Be sure to clean, dry, and remove all labels before recycling them!
