|Abstract:||This study investigates the factors needed for the implementation of a successful waste management plan in Singapore. Data were obtained through mail surveys and face-to-face interviews. Statistical t-test of the mean was carried out to determine the relevance of the issues. For waste management plans to succeed, commitment of the top management and involvement of senior site staff are essential. This indicates that waste management must be a top-down approach, as workers, by themselves, are not motivated to minimize waste. A good waste management plan should include measures for waste prevention, waste minimization and waste recycling.|
