Thanks for doing your part to #RecycleRight.

Last year, we saw an improvement in Singapore’s overall recycling rate – from 52% in 2020 to 55% in 2021.

This shows the important role that each of us play in our nation’s journey #TowardsZeroWaste.

The latest waste and recycling statistics also revealed that about 6.94 million tonnes of solid waste was generated in 2021, 18% more than in 2020, resulting from the recovery of economy and businesses.

This makes it even more urgent for us to shift from a linear to a circular economy, which forms a key part of the Zero Waste Masterplan and #SGGreenPlan.
