This presentation will show the waste situation in Singapore and other parts of the world and some of the worst case scenarios. The author provides an overview of management and recycling activities in Singapore and an account of  the development of the waste management industry from the early nineties to the present  where there is active participation in the industry by multinational companies. Problems faced by industry  players in the past, technologies  brought in to resolve them and new opportunities will be  presented. The coverage will also include the creation of the recycling park and the provision of special assistance to jump-start the recycling industry and to increase recycling. Finally, the following question is posed :  Given Singapore’s limited land area and relatively small market size, how and where will the waste management industry develop in the future?
