The National Recycling Programme was launched in 2001. Under this programme, the public waste collectors licensed by NEA are required to tie up with recycling companies to implement door-to-door collection of recyclable material in both HDB estates and landed properties within their servicing sectors. Residents are given recycling bags for HDB dwellers and trays or bins for landed properties, where they can put in paper, plastic and glass bottles, old clothing, metal cans, drink cartons etc. The recycling companies will collect them from their doorsteps fortnightly on a predetermined collection date.
