Recycling chutes on every floor at 16 BTO projects
HDB expands plan to make recycling easier after promising pilot scheme
Residents will find it easier to go green, with the Housing Board expanding a plan to install a separate rubbish chute for recyclables on every floor of the block.
Nearly 100 blocks in 16 Build-to-Order (BTO) projects now have the new feature, following a pilot in Punggol and Choa Chu Kang which has yielded encouraging results.
Most of these new blocks are in Punggol, with the rest in places like Sengkang and soon-to-be- completed blocks in Dawson.
A plan to roll out the project to even more blocks might be on the cards. But it would depend on the technical feasibility and maintenance requirements, and whether HDB is able to come up with a more cost-effective and efficient design, said an HDB spokesman.
