Impact Assessment of Waste Management Options in I Singapore

This paper investigates the present solid waste management situation in Singapore and compares it with other waste options. Modern urban integrated waste management practices are fundamentally reliant on two core technologies: landfilling and incineration. Solid waste management in Singapore is administered by the National Environmental Agency (NEA).4 With limited territory available for the landfilling of disposed wastes, the NEA policy for waste disposal gives top priority to the incineration of all incinerable wastes that are not recovered, reused, or recycled. There are presently four incineration plants and one sanitary landfill in Singapore.
