Minister for the Environment & Water Resources, Dr Vivian Balakrishnan launched Recycling Week 2011 today, in conjunction with the World Environment Day (5 June), at the Open Field next to Tampines MRT Station. The event is organised by the National Environment Agency (NEA) and its partners. It aims to raise awareness and engage the public on practising the 3Rs – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Through 3R, we can reduce the amount of waste sent to our incineration plants and thereby reduce the incineration bottom ash sent to our one and only landfill at Semakau Island.

Recycling Week, which started as Recycling Day in 2004, is a key Clean and Green Singapore event organised by NEA, in partnership with the Public Waste Collectors (PWCs), schools, Town Councils, National Library Board, the People’s Association and grassroots organisations. Read more
