Label for Recycling (L4R), the Singaporean not-for-profit organisation will help brand owners to assess the recyclability of their packaging and provide a market proven set of recycling labels for Singapore.

Packaging is primarily made of plastic and, as it can be seen below, in the last 15 years, the recycling rate of plastic in Singapore has steadily decreased down to 4 per cent in 2018.
The difficulty in segregating materials and the high-level of contamination are two of the main reasons explaining this low recycling rate.
