Singapore's First Integrated E-Waste PRS Program

ALBA Group Plc & Co.KG has been appointed by the National Environment Agency (NEA) as the Producer Responsibility Scheme (PRS) Operator for Electrical and Electronic Waste (E-Waste).

The ALBA Group, formed in 1968, has a demonstrated track record in operating Producer Responsibility Schemes in countries such as Germany and Hong Kong. With its local presence and technology expertise, the ALBA Group has been appointed by NEA to be the Public Waste Collector for the Jurong Sector since 1 April 2020, and E-Waste PRS operator for Singapore since 1 July 2021.

NEA appoints ALBA E-Waste as PRS operator

The appointment of the PRS Operator, ALBA E-Waste Smart Recycling Pte Ltd, the local ALBA entity, is an integral part of Singapore’s Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) scheme for E-Waste management. ALBA E-Waste will collect regulated consumer E-Waste across Singapore for proper treatment and recycling for a period of 5 years, from 1 July 2021 to 30 June 2026.

as PRS operator

E-Waste will be channeled through ALBA E-Waste sorting & logistics hub for weighing and categorisation, before being sent to licensed E-Waste recyclers for recycling. Raw materials are then recovered and channeled back into production, thus creating a circular value chain and enabling minimal environmental impact.

Resource Sustainability Act

The Resource Sustainability Act (RSA) was introduced by the Ministry of the Environment and Sustainability in 2020. Under the RSA, producers of regulated electrical and electronic products are responsible for the collection and proper treatment of their e-waste.
