Recycling Trucks


In Singapore, recycling trucks have the chasing arrows recycling symbol. They can look very similar to general waste trucks except for this symbol.  

In some areas, the trucks have automated side-loading. The side-loading system requires less manpower and allows for larger bins however not all estates have locations suitable for these bins. 

Waste collected by these trucks from blue bins is trucked to Material Recovery Facilities where the recyclables are sorted.

The recycling trucks are operated by the respective Public Waste Collectors for the geographical area served.
