NGO Collection Points

Introduction


Non-government organization (NGO) Collection Points are new outlets for recyclable waste. They are located in the existing premises of the participating NGOs, which have set aside space for accepting recyclables. The Collection Points are also used to promote green messages to the public.

Anyone can bring in waste plastics, glass bottles and small waste electrical and electronic equipment for recycling. Bins are set up to collect these recyclables. Souvenirs / daily commodities are handed out to the participants at some Collection Points for recyclable quantities above a certain level.

For NGOs
 

NGOs are invited to operate Collection Points in their existing premises. The EPD will provide support, such as collection bins and some funding (see below).

The NGO Collection Points are initially intended to collect recyclables of lower value, specifically plastics, glass bottles and small WEEE, from the public. However, if people ask an NGO to collect other higher-value recyclables, such as paper, metals and clothing, this can also be arranged.

NGO Collection Points require NGOs to provide:
