On an average day, 3.7kg of waste was generated from every hotel room in Singapore last year.
Hotels can indeed play an important role in helping to reduce waste and contributing towards a #SustainableSG, and many are going the extra mile to practise the 3Rs. Besides an increase in the average recycling rate, from 5.5% in 2016 to 8.5% in 2017, the majority of the hotels also disposed less waste last year.
Congratulations to the 14 winners of the 3R Awards for Hotels 2018, which have made commendable efforts to reduce waste! Other than installing food waste treatment machines, some introduced initiatives to reduce paper waste. They also conducted waste audits to determine the types and quantity of waste to identify areas where waste can be reduced, reused or recycled.
