Recycling Point Dot Com Needs Your
Some people who live near incinerator plants have told us that their health has suffered
because of air pollution from the plant.
Take a look at the Incinerator Plants in
Singapore, and understand how our daily refuse is handled each day.
Also, it is important to understand how the Poisons in the air is
We would like to find out if these are one-off cases or if it's a prevalent phenomenon
Thus, Recycling Point Dot Com has recently appointed Accel
Environmental Engineers Pte Ltd to be our consultant in regards, to Air Pollution in Singapore. They will help
us to test the ambient air surrounding the incinerators and the neighbourhood near
incinerators and if possible, to conduct regular test at incinerators and other factory's
Also, we would like to conduct a survey to find out if other Singaporeans living near
incineration plants around Singapore have also suffered health problems.

Recycling Point Dot Com Launches the
Recycling Point Dot Corn is launching an environment
project called C.B.E. project. What is C.B.E? It stands for 'Care for a Better
Environment'. This project will be launched on 20th October 2000, about four weeks before
'Green and Clean' week. Residents/offices can 'recycle online' with RPDC and its 40 area
managers around Singapore. The recyclables will be purchased according to market price and
picked up at their doorsteps. The collection schedule depends mainly on the amount of
recyclables generated by offices and households in that area. For further information, the
public can logon to our website at www.recyclingpoint.com.sg.
RPDC believes that with the C.B.E. project, waste can be reduced up to 50 per cent
generated from Singaporeans and RPDC is starting a public pledge to put off for as long as
possible the building of the fifth refuse incinerator costing about S$600 million. In
1993, the Environment Ministry's permanent secretary once said that the building of the
refuse incinerator could be delayed if the amount of refuse generated could be reduced. A
small nation like ours has four incinerators already running with full capacity, not
forgetting Pulua Semakau costing S$1 .2 billion. The public can also logon to our website
Residents/offices need only to to register with us for a white bag costing $10.00 each and
it will be deducted from the collection. They can use the bag to contain smaller materials
like aluminium cans and waste paper, whereas the bigger and heavier items will be taken
away. The waste materials that RPDC collects are wastepaper, used ink/empty toner
cartridges, office furniture, used air-conltelevisionlvideo recorder/washing
machine/refrigerator, commercial batteries, ferrous and non-ferrous metal, scrap
wire/cable, old computers/printers/monitors, printed circuit boards, commercial batteries,
carpets, used bed/mattress, window curtains, fans, used shoes, and so forth. The C.B.E.
project will be supported by its full time area managers situated at north, south, east
and west of Singapore, whereas, the central area will be serviced by RPDC. Lets recycle,
recycle online, and recycle for good cause at no cost. Should you require further
information, please contact Mr. Joseph Tan at 968 1-7890. Thank you.

Press Release - Launch of Recycling
Point Dot Com's Website - 27th September 2000
Recycling Point Dot
Com will launch it's website on 27th September 2000.
It will feature environmental issues such as recycling,
pollutions, anti-dumping, environment audit (paper
and general waste) and other general matters.
It wishes to employ a team of 'green' reporters to
approach MNCs, companies, hospitals, schools, etc
to promote recycling, report and video it, and post
it in Recycling Point Dot Com's website. The
video will show surfer from around the world that
Singaporeans are clean, green, and environmental friendly.
The video, however, will appear on the web for about
one month and if individual companies wish to have
it stay on will have to pay a certain maintenance
fee. RPDC (Recycling Point Dot Com) will also
source environmental documentaries from around the
world to be sold in its website. Recycling
Point Dot Com will promote recycling by buying used
items such as old computers, spoilt monitors/TV/VCR,
waste papers, printers, empty laser printer, cartridges,
electronic scraps, carpets, office furniture, home
appliances/furniture, aluminium cans, metals, and
wire scraps. These items will be sent for re-use
in developing countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia,
Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, etc for recycling purpose.
RPDC will also pay for confidential papers sent here
for shredding. What the public need to do is
before their office removal, reinstatement or accumulate
about 100Kg of waste papers, we would like to offer
to buy whatever is recyclable or reusable.
The public, who wants
to pledge to be Green, can register
with us in our website and we are hoping to collect
100,000 Green signatures. With this, we believe
a new era of recycling is born.
