Do you know where your trashes go? Understanding how waste is transported, processed, and managed is one of the most powerful tools to get people to act and recycle right. On 30th November 2020, we delivered a presentation about the waste management eco-system and long-term strategies for Singapore for the Association Française de Singapour.
In 2019, Singapore released its Zero Waste Masterplan which outlines the key strategies for achieving a 70% overall recycling rate by 2030 while reducing its waste generation. In this presentation, we covered the following topics:
- Overview of the waste management eco-system in Singapore;
- Current and future infrastructures for the recycling of materials; and
- Actions you can take at home or at work to contribute to a circular economy.
We like to extend our gratitude to the Association Française de Singapour and all the participants of the event.
If you would like to organise a presentation in your company to raise awareness among your staff, feel free to contact us.
The Zero Waste Masterplan was launched in August 2019 to build a sustainable, resource-efficient and climate-resilient Singapore. It includes:
- Key strategies to adopt a circular economy approach and targets to reduce the amount of waste sent to Semakau landfill by 30% by 2030
- Regulatory interventions such as the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) frameworks on e-waste and packaging.
- Educational and engagement efforts with people, private, and public sectors.
