Environmental Sustainability Day
Our Monthly Recycling Day is now renamed as Environmental Sustainability Day (formerly known as Tzu Chi Recycling Day).
Our renamed activity will have a wider coverage which includes scopes relating to environment such as food waste, eco lifestyle, saving water, etc. We hope to encourage everyone to cultivate sustainable habits in favour of a greener environment!
Necessary adjustments have been made at Tzu Chi Eco-Awareness Centre to comply with the gradually lifted preventive measures. Hence, we urge for cooperation from the public to sort their own recyclables at home before dropping them into the right containers at the centre. Please refer to our website on what can and can’t be recycled: www.tzuchi.org.sg/en/our-missions/environmental-protection/eco-points#recyclables
- Please note that from September 2020 onwards, all plastic items will NOT BE ACCEPTED, due to various reasons as explained in our press release: www.tzuchi.org.sg/assets/Reports/20201007-Tzu-Chi-encourages-plastics-waste-reduction-media-press-release-ENG.pdf
- All donated recyclable materials at Tzu Chi collection centre and points are always being sold to recycling companies.
Given the existing circumstances, we seek your understanding in this matter. In Tzu Chi, we focus on 5Rs, i.e. Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Repair and Recycle. Join us in this journey to move towards a Zero Waste nation by practicing 5Rs!
Beginning 2021, our Environmental Sustainability Day will be held on every 3rd Sunday of the month as per the dates below:
17/01, 21/02, 21/03, 18/04, 16/05, 20/06

Gentle reminder: Recycling is the final step in environmental conservation. To better save and protect our environment more effectively, the ultimate solution is to practice “refuse, reduce, reuse, repair and recycle” in our daily life.
