This was the question posed to members of public who signed up to join the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources’ (MEWR) inaugural Citizens’ Workgroup.
From 21 September to 20 October 2019, more than 40 citizens from diverse backgrounds worked together to co-create solutions to improve the way households recycle in Singapore.
The Workgroup members were provided with the following to facilitate their discussions:
Visit to a Materials Recovery Facility
Access to background information about household recycling in Singapore, including statistics from household recycling surveys
Access to subject matter experts
Access to funding of materials required for testing of ideas.
Check out what workgroup participants saw on their visit to a Materials Recovery Facility, where recyclables are sorted!
Citizens’ Workgroup Reports
The members of the Citizens’ Workgroup have submitted their recommendations to MEWR in a report.
Senior Minister of State for the Environment and Water Resources, Dr Amy Khor, met with members of the #RecycleRight Citizens’ Workgroup on 23 November 2019 to share MEWR’s response to their recommendations. We look forward to working with the members to further co-develop and pilot their recommendations.
