Singapore's integrated solid waste management system focuses on two key thrusts – waste minimisation and recycling, or simply the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle). In land-scarce Singapore, waste-to-energy (WTE) incineration plants offer the best technical solution by reducing waste volume efficiently to conserve landfill space. The 3Rs play a crucial role by preventing waste generation at its source and bringing along numerous benefits.
We will work towards becoming a Zero Waste Nation by reducing our consumption, as well as reusing and recycling all materials to give them a second lease of life.
