City Square Mall goes green this World Environment Day
This World Environment Day, City Square Mall, owned and managed by City Developments Limited (CDL), invites the public to do their part for the environment and be agents of change towards a sustainable future. True to its commitment as Singapore’s first eco-mall, City Square Mall’s Electronic Waste (e-waste) Recycling Programme encourages the public to go green and recycle their e- waste instead of tossing away unwanted electronic or electrical items.
World Environment Day is the United Nations’ principal vehicle for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the environment. Since establishment, it has grown into a global platform for people to realise their responsibilities towards the environment. This year, City Square Mall further reaffirms its support for the environment through its new recycling programme targeted at a growing concern of today’s society – e- waste.
E-waste is any electronic or electrical item that one no longer find usable or useful. Due to space constraints, large and bulky items such as washing machines and TV sets will not be accepted. The mall welcomes all types and brands of electronic and electrical equipment for recycling.
From 5 June to 6 July, participants who trade in their e-waste at the L2 Customer Service Counter will receive an eco-bag from City Square Mall, limited to the first 1,000 participants and one eco-bag per person per day.
The public can look forward to educational eco-related activities at City Square Mall, including an exhibition by National Environment Agency (NEA) between 5 to 6 July at B1 MRT Entrance. In a bid to raise awareness and educate the public on how to reduce their carbon footprint, the exhibition will highlight some tips for safeguarding our environment to ensure sustainable and quality living for present and future generations. There will also be eco-related games at the exhibition between 2 to 5pm on both days.
