Recycling Services FAQs

Do you collect from residentials / households (HDBs, landed properties, condos and apartments)?

Due to the current covid situation, we have ceased all household collections until further notice.

Why is the Ad-Hoc collection a chargeable service?

Ad-hoc collections are chargeable so as to cover for the increased transport and manpower costs.

If your items for collection is less than 300kg, we recommend you to either:
1) Recycle at the commingled blue recycling bins or
2) Bring it down to us for single-stream recycling

  • For HDB estates, commingled blue recycling bins are placed in open areas that are convenient and accessible to the residents.
  • For private landed estates, a commingled blue recycling bin is provided to each house.
  • For industrial areas and offices, you can check if the bin centers are able to handle your recyclables.

This will greatly reduce the carbon footprint incurred from the transportation of your recyclables.

Why is the recycling of office documents / mixed papers chargeable?

Recycling of office documents / mixed papers / carbon paper is chargable due to labour costs required for sorting the papers, which is very labour and time intensive .

Are there any other additional charges for ad-hoc doorstep collection services?

For ad-hoc doorstep collection services, additional charges apply for

  • Out of way areas, Town, Sentosa, CBD, Jurong Island, Shipyards, and Changi Air Freight Cargo Complex
  • Building Accessibility: No loading bay / forklift / cargo lift, or stairs climbing required
  • Carparks with height limitations below 3.2m, as our regular recycling trucks will not be able to enter.
