Zero Waste SG is a new non-profit and non-governmental organisation dedicated to help Singapore eliminate the concept of waste, and accelerate the shift towards zero waste and the circular economy. It started as a website in 2008 providing tips and resources on waste minimisation and recycling, and is officially registered as a non-governmental organisation on 13 Jul 2015.
Zero Waste SG aims to promote education and engagement on the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle) among individuals and households; increase waste minimisation and recycling among businesses and organisations; and reduce specific waste.
The Singapore government has set targets of achieving a 70% national recycling rate and a 30% domestic recycling rate by 2030. We believe that we can help Singapore to meet and exceed these targets, by working together with government agencies, businesses, community groups and individuals.
