All Tetra Pak carton packages, together with its openings and closures such as straws and caps, are fully recyclable.
As part of Tetra Pak’s efforts to increase the recycling rate of Used Beverage Cartons (UBC) in Singapore, we focus on raising consumer awareness, sharing our knowledge and expertise, facilitating collection infrastructure and supporting recycling technology development through community recycling activities.
Tetra Pak has partnered with public waste collector Colex to launch 'Cash for Trash Jurong Community Recycling Programme' in 2013. The recycling initiative was met with enthusiastic residents who consistently brought Used Beverage Cartons (UBC) to collection points every Sunday during the campaign period.
The recycling journey of Kolam Ayer has been a passionately sustainable one. Since 2014, Tetra Pak has been collaborating with the organiser Kolam Ayer Resident Committee (RC) to promote and collect used beverage carton recycling in Bendeemer estate.
With the support from Kolam Ayer's public waste collector, recyclables are collected at ease after each recycling drive. The collection drives are monthly and bi-monthly all year round by the following participating RCs:
Tzu Chi Foundation is one of our most active recycling partners in Singapore. To date, 33 recycling collection points are operating on Sundays, once a month to receive recyclables neatly packed by residents.
Tetra Pak Singapore has been partners with Tzu Chi Foundation since May 2015 in promoting the importance of recycling Used Beverage Cartons (UBC) to residents. Exhibition booths have been set up and rotate among the collection points to showcase recycling messages and items that can be made from recycled UBCs.
When recycling Used Beverage Cartons (UBC), we encourage people to rinse & push the straw back or put the cap back on the package and do the 3Fs – Flip. Flap. Flat before dropping it off at the recycling drop off center. The recovered materials can be made into notepads, roofing sheets and school benches.
