Problem Statement

Food waste, amounting to 744 million kg, accounts for about 10% of total waste generated in Singapore, but only 18% of the food waste is actually recycled. We can do more to reduce food waste, and composting is one of many avenues identified. However, a majority of Singaporeans do not engage in composting due to various reasons. How can we encourage Singaporeans to tackle this issue together by participating in composting?

Project Description

CompostTogether aims to set up composting facilities in community gardens, so that residents in surrounding HDBs are able to conveniently and easily dispose of their food waste in a sustainable manner. This includes teaching volunteers how to compost, as well as educating the public about composting, so that they can be eased into the practice of sustainable living. Their project aspires to build the foundation for sustainable living practices and encourage residents to adopt this practice into their lifestyles.

THREE QUESTIONS

Would you be willing to travel to your nearest community garden to drop off your food waste, given clear instructions on what food waste is accepted & directions to the location?

  • Yes
  • No

What issues do you foresee while trying to contribute your food waste to the community composting initiative?

How much, and what kind of, food waste do you generate? a) Examples: Vegetable scraps, eggshells, coffee grounds, etc. b) NOTE: Need not be exact, simply a personal gauge.
