Up to 75% of our trash can actually be recycled! When you recycle something, you are making sure used waste and materials are converted into new products. By practising this, we will not waste reusable materials. When there is less demand for new materials, less energy consumptio­n is needed.

The next time you crumple up a piece of paper, or throw away an empty drink can, consider if these materials are recyclable. In Singapore, recycle bins are now easily found at void decks and community centres!

You may be familiar with the term – 3Rs – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. This is a simple and effective way of doing your part in reducing pollution and waste.
