IKEA Singapore Partners to Offer Free Recycling Bins

To facilitate and improve household recycling in Singapore, the country’s National Environment Agency (NEA) and IKEA Singapore have jointly launched a new recycling initiative. In August, about 18,000 residents of Built-to-Order (BTO) flats in new Housing and Development Board (HDB) precincts will receive vouchers that can be used on to redeem a free recycling bin sponsored by IKEA Singapore. The initiative aims to inspire more households to recycle regularly. According to a household recycling survey conducted in 2018 by the Ministry of Environment and Water Resources (MEWR) and NEA only 60 percent of Singapore households recycled regularly. Convenience was indicated as an important factor for recycling. The bin provided by IKEA Singapore is also made from 60 percent recycled plastic with a design that easily fits into any home. Each recycling bin has a prominent blue recycling label, which includes recycling tips like ensuring that recyclables are free from food and liquid waste.
