Abstract: Rapid urbanisation and industrialisation have prompted many governments, municipalities and city planners around the world to move towards more sustainable development in order to meet their people’s needs in an environmentally compatible, economically viable and socially harmonious manner. The Singapore government has also been pursuing such sustainable goals but judging from its current progress, Singapore needs to take more drastic and effective measures in order to achieve some of these goals. Through the years, Singapore’s solid waste generation has increased in tandem with population and economic growth. As municipal solid waste (MSW) accounts for more than half of Singapore’s total waste output, more attention should be paid on how this type of waste should be better controlled and managed. This research focuses on Singapore’s current approaches and strategies in managing its MSW and assesses their effectiveness in meeting the country’s present and future waste management needs in a sustainable manner. Based on the research findings, recommendations are then made on how Singapore can make the transition to a more sustainable MSW management model.
