SGBC Member and leading materials science company Dow and national sports agency Sport Singapore (SportSG) announced the establishment of a permanent shoe waste collection ecosystem, which aims to recycle 170,000 pairs of used sports shoes per annum.

This collaboration also involves partners such as B.T. Sports, Alba WH, Decathlon and Standard Chartered Bank. Starting July 5, 2021, used sports shoes will form a permanent collect-for-recycling waste stream in Singapore, which will help reduce the load on and extend the lifespan of Semakau, the country’s only offshore landfill. The ORANGE bins encourage good recycling habits and behaviour; and ensures that shoe waste will be the source of recycled rubber and become the base materials for future sports infrastructure builds.
