INCREASING RECYCLING RATE TO 70% BY 2030

The recycling rate in Singapore currently stands at about 60%, up from 40% in 2000.

However, we can do better. In 2018, only about half of the total amount of paper and cardboard waste were recycled and just 4% of plastics were recycled.

We aim to increase the recycling rate to 70% by 2030.

OUR PROGRESS

MORE CONVENIENT TO RECYCLE

Recycling Progress

More than 80,000 bins have been placed in HDB and landed estates across the island.

Since April 2018, all new non-landed private residential developments above four storeys are required to install dual chutes for refuse and recyclables. All condominiums have also been required to provide one recycling per block since August 2018.

We will continue to make recycling accessible to all residents.
