To improve waste management in the hotel industry, the Singapore Hotel Association (SHA) and National Environment Agency (NEA) have jointly launched the 3R (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) Programme for Hotels.

This initiative aims to help hotels achieve better waste management and increase waste recycling rates.

NEA said it is part of ongoing outreach effort to encourage different industry sectors to play their part to recycle and contribute towards the recycling rate target of 70 per cent by 2030.
