Food waste recycling at Singapore’s hawker centres

Food waste recycling

National Environment Agency (NEA) has awarded a contract to two companies to install, operate and maintain food waste recycling machines in two popular hawker centres in Singapore.

Through this two-year experimental project operational from December 2015, VRM Operations will set up and maintain a food waste recycling machine at Tiong Bahru Market which has 83 food stalls. Eco-Wiz will handle food waste recycling for almost 220 food units at Ang Mo Kio Market. The two companies are expected to train stall holders and cleaners on sorting waste. The companies will provide these food stalls with big or small garbage bins based on the amount of food waste generated by them. Eco-Wiz will also conduct a study on different types of food waste generated by these stalls and submit the findings to relevant authorities.
