With the constant population growth in such a limited land, Singapore is faced with multiple challenges in waste management. Over the last decades, Singapore aimed to strive for a zero-waste environment for its nation by reducing the significant amount of waste disposed of through recycling and maximizing landfills. The scope of this poster is to present whether Singapore has had an efficient control over its waste management in the last two decades. The poster took approaches to analyze statistics that concludes the recycle rates categorized into different classifications of waste disposals from 2003 to 2020 and average of total saved energy through the process of recycling. Overall, the findings suggest Singapore had an efficient waste management at the beginning with constant growth of recycle rate, but discrepancies are found starting from 2018 since the rate declined rapidly in three years. So coming to the conclusion that Singapore’s efficiency on waste management control still has the potential to develop sustainable improvement. Visualizing these data can help Singapore’s government to implement recycling policies that motivate people to improve their living environment.

  1. Hello, Jialu and Yitong!

    Great work! Your presentation was very insightful on Singapore’s Waste Management Control. I think this topic is very important, especially with global warming today. I like your use of both pictures and graphics so it looks more appealing and easier to understand for the audience. Your poster is also very organized and informative. However, I think you can take some information out or summarize them and make the font bigger to make it easier to read the poster. In addition to researching about waste management control, it is important to find ways to fix the problem. I like how you included recommendations to help increase the recycle rate. Overall, I think you both did a very great job on your research and presentation!
