زياره لأحد مرادم النفايات في سنغافوره والتي يتم فيها ردم مخلفات محطات حرق النفايات الى طاقه
I'm standing on Singapore's most expensive road 😎! It cost $400mil (in 1990s prices) to construct a 7km stretch 😱
The ship set sail in a very calm sea.

Good morning Singapore!
Singapore’s country side - Semakau landfill
Tanpa ada keyakinan dan kerja keras, kamu tidak akan pernah menjadikan mimpimu jadi kenyataan🍃
To see is to believe - never thought that landfill can be such beautiful! This is why #blimbeecroweverywhereiconic is a must 🤪
Calling seconds for Semakau Island, well seconds for me from my last trip to there. This time, with the school.
On site #engrbagzy
Going to main land!!! #fb_ess @semakau
It definitely did not felt like Singapore nor a landfill... such hidden beauty supposingly filled with incinerated thrash 🗑️!
Went to an educational trip in Semakau Landfill to understand how the waste being managed and incinerated in Singapore. Impressed and encouraged by the systematic approach taken by National Environment Agency on waste minimization. Beside raising awareness, everyone plays an important part to save the environment and reduce waste where we can. ♻️♻️♻️ #ReuseReduceRecycle #sustainableliving
Us at the world’s first manmade offshore landfill! 👭
Such an eye opening experience to see where our waste is going. 2x more waste was created during the CNY period. 🍊🍊 Lush greenery and lots of animals too. World's first man-made offshore island. #wastemanagementopen #semakaulandfill #rarechance #nature #green #greenery #island
#DidYouKnow ❓The Semakau Landfill is Singapore's first and only landfill situated offshore amongst the southern islands of Singapore. It is estimated to last until 2045, though this estimate may have changed due to the increasing rate of trash generated by our country. 😱 . Seastainable is proud to have supported @wearetrashherosingapore 's to have 28 participants visit to the Semakau Landfill and learn more about Singapore's trash management system ♻️🗑 . For those who have missed this trip and are planning to go, stay tuned to @wearetrashherosingapore 's Facebook for updates on any future trips they're planning to Semakau ✨ 🛳 .

♻ PSA: ONLY 21% OF PEOPLE IN SINGAPORE RECYCLE ♻ Do you ever wonder where your trash ends up? Yesterday, we went on a tour of the Semakau Landfull with @wearetrashherosingapore to find out more about the trash process here in Singapore. And one of the stats that really stood out to us was that Singapore currently is recycling at a rate of 61% which sounds good, however only 21% is at a domestic level (the rest is businesses/commercial). This means that only ❗️21%❗️ of us are recycling at home. This is shocking. And we can do better. Keep an eye out for a full write up on the Landfill site on the blog and we’ll chat about ways to manage our waste better 👀 . #SemakauLandfill #Semakau #landfillsite #singapore #singaporelandfill #trashprocess #trash #trashcycle #sg #landfill #garbageofeden #waste #wasteprocess #zerowaste #wastemanagement #asia #ecoexpats #expats #expatlife
Thank you to everyone that joined us this morning at the Semakau Landfill to find out more about where our trash ends us when we dump it in the bin. Extra special thank you to @seastainable.co who gave us sponsorship for part of the ferry trip out there. 💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛 Now we're back on the mainland it's important to remember the lessons we learnt out on the tour. Why not take a #plasticaudit of your life and collect all the food packaging you have over the next week. Then take a pledge to change just one item in there for something more sustainable. Remember its all about the #smallsteps and #changestartswithus If you didn't manage to join us this time then we'll try to do another trip later in the year, please watch out FB event pages for more information. #globalcitizens #bethesolutiontooceanpollution #itsstartswithus #bethechange #plasticfree #plasticlite #consumeless #reduce #reuse #recycle #letsmakeachange #caremore #landfill #wastemanagement #zerowaste #zerowatesg #keepsingaporeclean #wecleanweeducatewechange #trashherosingapore #trashheroworld

Recently, 30 of our #Unilovers joined our @Unilever Sustainability team on another clean-and-green adventure. This time – to Pulau Semakau! Through this visit, they learnt and gained more insights on how Singapore manages its waste, and how each and every citizen can lead a sustainable lifestyle. #UniquelyUnilever #ProudToBeU #USLP #sustainableliving
First time visited Semakau Landfill. 实马高垃圾埋置场初体验。 。 #semakaulandfill #pulausemakau #pulausakeng #pasirpanjangferryterminal #实马高垃圾埋置场 #实马高岛 。 。 Semakau Landfill is located about 8km south of Singapore. A 7km perimeter rock bund encloses part of the sea off Pulau Semakau and Pulau Sakeng to create the space for the landfill. The bund is lined with impermeable membrane and a layer of marine clay, ensuring that leachate from the refuse is contained in the landfill. Ancillary facilities were built to ensure that the landfill operation is self-sustainable. 。 在新加坡本岛以南约八公里的实马高岛，从巴西班让坐船前往，只需约半小时。这短短半个钟的时空转移，让人逐渐远离城市喧嚣，进入宁静悠闲、海景优美、稀有动植物生机盎然的一片土地。很难想象，这如同世外桃源的小岛，有个官方身份——“实马高垃圾埋置场”。
Off to Semakau Island for a project, an island designated for landfill, but looks more like a nature reserve. #flyhtstudio #landfill #semakau #environment #island #filming #photography #renewableenergy #dji #aerial #aerialfilming #djiinspire1 #djiphantom4 #djiphantom #vr #landscape #360camera #virtualreality
Case study 1 (Developed): Singapore ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 2017, 7.70 million tonnes of solid waste was generated in Singapore where 4.72 million tonnes were recycled. The incineration plants in Singapore are used to generate heat from waste to generate energy. Refuse collection vehicles transport incinerable waste to these plants. The waste is then crushed to make the waste more suitable for incineration where it is then reduced into ash which has less volume where it is then sent to Semakau Landfill. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ https://www.nea.gov.sg/our-services/waste-management/waste-statistics-and-overall-recycling https://www.nea.gov.sg/our-services/waste-management/waste-management-infrastructure/waste-to-energy-and-incineration-plants
It was surprisingly a pleasant trip we had at Puala Semakau Landfill - clean, quiet, with greens around the island. Can’t imagine all of Singapore waste is been disposed here and in this island we literally did the jump! Haha... #semakaulandfill
#GRM Activity# 一个几乎看不到垃圾的垃圾岛
We are back on Semakau Island! Trip no. 2 commenced this morning and we brought more than 60 participants to the world’s first man made landfill! We know that there are more people who are keen to join so look out for another session in August! #semakauisland #greennudgesg #greensights

Learning journey to semakau landfill last week.
Herons, taking a break at Semakau, along their migratory path. This is Phase 2 of the Semakau Landfill, with the Singapore skyline in the background. #shhk #southernislands #heron #pulausemakau #semakaulandfill
Throwback Site briefing..
One of our members visited semakau landfill yesterday and learnt quite a few things. Because plastic is not biodegradable, when it's burnt, it takes up a lot more space compared to other waste. This is a big problem for Singapore as if we continue with our current rate of wastage, Semakau island could be fully filled up before 2035. Where are we going to dump our waste after that? The first picture was taken along Singapore waters at Marina South Pier, try to spot the plastic bottle in the 3rd pic!
roadtrip to a landfill -- where trash like us truly belong 🚛
