WASTE PRODUCTION NEVER STOPS

In line with population and economic growth, the volume of waste produced has increased more than six-fold over the past 40 years. In 1970, we were producing some 1,200 tonnes of waste each day. In 2010, the amount has grown to 7,600 tonnes.

Without an efficient waste collection system in place, piles of rubbish would accumulate near homes and workplaces and create breeding grounds for pests and poses threats to public health.
