The recycling contractors usually organise a recycling exchange once a month by working with the Residents’ Committee (RC) to set up recycling stations for residents to exchange their recyclables for cash or food items. For example, Colex has the Cash for Trash Programme in the Jurong sector, and Veolia has the Cash for Trash Programme in the Pasir Ris-Tampines, Bedok, and Tanglin-Bukit Merah sectors.
