Residents in the South East district of Singapore will now have a convenient channel to recycle their electronic waste.

Electronic waste includes unwanted electrical and electronic devices like computers and ovens.

Residents can drop off these devices at 10 designated Resident Committee (RC) centres in Marine Parade and Mountbatten. Residents can also deposit other recyclable waste like paper, aluminium cans and plastic bottles at the RC centres.

The monthly collection drives will be held every first Sunday of the month, starting from July 14.

It is part of a six-month trial initiated by Panasonic Asia Pacific, in partnership with the South East Community Development Council, National Environment Agency, electrical and electronic retailer BEST Denki, e-waste recycler Cimelia and public waste collector SembWaste.
