Singapore's Recycling Vending Machines
Updated: Dec 23, 2020
60 vending machines that accept plastic and aluminium drink containers and then dispense discount vouchers have been rolled out at locations islandwide. People who deposit receptacles can now choose from a wider range of rewards, such as free rides with bike-sharing firm Anywheel, vouchers that can be used at CapitaLand malls, ActiveSG credit and Sentosa Fun Pass tokens.
Current rates of waste disposal indicate that the Semakau Landfill could be full by 2035, a decade ahead of the initially projected 2045.
