“My hope is that we all get to the stage where sorting and recycling becomes second nature, as it is in many other advanced economies.” — Jamus Lim

“The recycling approach and green bin / blue bin system have been standardised in Singapore since 2011, following a review of the National Recycling Programme,” said Fu in a written reply.

Revisiting this issue and posting on Facebook earlier this week, Lim gives examples of other countries which utilize beyond the single stream recycling approach. “In many European countries, there is sorting into at least 3 categories, like glass, metal, and paper. China, true to form, is rolling out sorting, by fiat. It’s more decentralized at the municipal level in Japan; in one town where there are a whopping 45 different categories!”

Although there are definitely steps taken to improve the situation, Lim feels that Singapore still has a long way to go before we get to a stage where it becomes part of our DNA to contribute to a greener and sustainable environment.
