In 2020 alone, we discarded around 200,000 tonnes of disposables. At the current rate of waste disposal, our only landfill, Semakau Landfill, will be fully filled by 2035. We can’t go on like this.
Our national goal is to reduce the amount of waste sent to Semakau Landfill by 30 per cent per capita per day by 2030. Under the Singapore Green Plan 2030 (SGP), we are frontloading this to achieve a 20 per cent reduction in waste-to-landfill per capita per day by 2026.
Let’s choose to use clean reusable carrier bags, containers and bottles, and keep Singapore green for future generations.
