About NEA-ESG Joint Innovation Call on Cleaning, Waste Management and Monitoring of Environmental Process Parameters
The National Environment Agency (NEA) and Enterprise Singapore (ESG) have jointly launched an Innovation Call under the Government – Partnership Capability Transformation (Gov-PACT) initiative, to encourage greater use of technology and automation to raise productivity for cleaning, waste management and monitoring of environmental process parameters. The innovation call also seeks to address operational challenges in the industry, as well as to build up the capability and skillsets of workers.
Innovation Call: [D] To Develop a Productive, Cleaner and Cost-effective Refuse Collection System
Older HDB blocks are fitted with Individual Refuse Chutes (IRCs). The process of waste removal currently requires two town council conservancy crew members to (i) carry the filled refuse bin in the IRC onto a buggy and (ii) drive to a bin centre where the bin is again carried down and pushed to a compactor to unload the waste.
This often results in refuse/sullage spillage as well as pest and smell nuisance which warrants further mitigation actions.
The proposed solution should meet the following requirements:
