Panasonic launches recycling program in Singapore

By Editorial Staff, Resource Recycling

Panasonic Asia Pacific has launched the Heartland E-Waste Recycling Programme, a pilot e-scrap collection program in Singapore.

The global electronics giant has collaborated with local and national partners to develop and implement the recycling program, which aims to raise recycling awareness and encourage residents to recycle used electronics.

Panasonic has set up collection sites for consumers to dispose of their used home appliances, electronics devices and general recyclables at multiple locations in the southeast Asian city-state. In addition, an educational initiative will take place in schools throughout Singapore, and Panasonic has also pledged to donate 5,000 energy-efficient light bulbs to lower-income families in the city-state.

Similar green initiatives have been launched by Panasonic worldwide, including its "kids school eco learning" program, which has had more than 100,000 participants.

The Heartland E-Waste Recycling Programme will run from July to December 2013.
