SINGAPORE, Aug. 29, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Tidy Waste Management Group releases its carbon footprint report assessing its emission impact and goals for the future. Through innovative approaches and an unwavering commitment to sustainability in both their waste disposal and recycling facilities, they have made significant progress in carbon savings.
With an annual processing capacity of 64,932 tonnes of waste yearly, Tidy Waste Management Group demonstrates its dedication to minimising the impact of waste by recycling 74.2% of all waste processed. The group has diminished the need for virgin materials by diverting 48,201 tonnes of waste away from landfills to recycling facilities, turning trash into valuable resources.
This achievement underscores their role as an active contributor to local and global environmental goals. “We are thrilled to be at the forefront of sustainable waste disposal and environmental protection,” said Vincent Wang, Director of Tidy Waste Management Group. “We understand that the task of waste disposal goes far beyond keeping Singapore clean. It contains a deeper mission to embrace the principles of the circular economy and pave the way for a more sustainable future.”
Going beyond mere emission reduction, Tidy Waste Management Group proudly stands as a carbon-negative entity. While their operations emit 8 million tonnes of carbon emissions, their recycling efforts helped to save 34 million tonnes of carbon emissions. This makes the group stand at carbon-negative by 26 million tonnes. The impact of these carbon savings is equivalent to planting 1.2 million mature trees in a single year or taking 12,000 cars off the road.
They continue to move forward in their goal to further increase carbon emissions savings by incorporating solutions to increase their recycling rate and incorporate green energy sources, including:
- Installation of Solar Panels
For clean energy generation on-site and to reduce reliance on fossil fuels,
- Copper Cable Recycling Machine
