A chronicle of waste minimisation and recycling in NUS

Benefits that a spoke and Hub system can bring

With effect from August 09, NUS has started on a spoke and hub system for recycling – at least for paper and continuing with cans and bottles in November.

More details about the system and the FAQ can be found here.

This system needs the housekeeping staff support to collect all the recyclables and the biggest benefit is that we can now set up as many recycling points as possible.

This is evidenced by the setting up green boxes of individual faculty staff in Engineering as highlighted here.

This is important because although NUS has progressed with respect to contamination, we have still missed out the one of the largest source of our paper waste to be recycled – the faculty staff who has individual rooms.
