Budget 2011: Recycling programme to be enhanced with one bin per HDB block

Singapore will enhance its National Recycling Programme (NRP) by providing one recycling bin for every HDB block with daily collection. This is an increase from the previous rate of one bin for every five blocks of HDB flats. On average, a resident in Singapore generates 860 grammes of waste every day - which is one third more than in Germany or Taiwan. Over a year, Singapore can dispose enough waste to cover one eighth of Singapore's surface area, said Minister for Environment and Water Resources Yaacob Ibrahim in Parliament on Friday. To reduce waste and encourage more recycling, "we will make it easier for households to recycle. Households can now look forward to more recycling bins and more frequent collection services," said Dr Yaacob. Read more Source and Image: Channel NewsAsia
