Waste Management Infrastructure

Sarimbun Recycling Park

The Sarimbun Recycling Park (SRP) was set up to boost the local waste recycling industry.


Located in the northwest of Singapore, the SRP used to be part of a landfill site known as the Lim Chu Kang Dumping Ground. Landfilling operation in the Lim Chu Kang Dumping Ground began in 1976 and was finally closed in September 1992. The land will require many decades to be stabilised before it can be utilised for more permanent developments.

The SRP plays an important role in resource recovery and contributes about a quarter of total waste recycled in Singapore. Managed by NEA, it is divided into smaller plots of lands which are leased to recycling companies.
