CAPITALAND is rolling out electronic waste (e-waste) recycling bins across 10 of its shopping malls in Singapore to encourage shoppers and tenants to adopt e-waste recycling, the group said in a filing to the bourse operator on Tuesday.

The developer's move to ramp up its e-waste recycling efforts is a natural progression of its waste-recycling journey - which started in 2008 with recycling bins for paper, metal and plastic in all its Singapore properties - making it the largest mall network with such an initiative here.

This builds on the success of CapitaLand's first e-waste recycling programme at Funan DigitaLife Mall, which was selected for the group's pilot e-waste recycling programme.

Started in May 2014, Funan's e-waste recycling programme had collected over 32 tonnes of e-waste by the end of June 2016, the group said.

Going beyond its malls, CapitaLand is also engaging its Singapore office tenants with an e-waste collection drive from this month to December 2016 at eight of its office properties - Capital Tower, CapitaGreen, Six Battery Road, One George Street, Raffles City Tower, Twenty Anson, HSBC Building and Wilkie Edge.
