Nurture Sustainable Living with IPC Recycling & Buy-Back Centre

We recently unveiled our revamped and upgraded Recycling & Buy-Back Centre (RBBC) with new enhancements and features that will elevate consumer’s recycling journey to a seamless and digitalized experience. It operates daily from 8am to 10pm.

Located at the same zone in P1 Carpark, the new IPC RBBC features a vibrant Scandinavian aesthetic that showcases its many different waste categories based on colours of the rainbow with a sleek and clean digital new look. It is also strategically located for easy accessibility for shoppers to drop-off their recyclables when they visit IPC Shopping Centre.

RBBC started back in 2009 with only 6 recyclables categories, but the upgraded digitalised version today now accepts up to 14 recyclables categories: cardboard, paper, plastic, metal, aluminium, drink carton, polystyrene, textile, light bulb or tube, medicine, glass, battery, e-waste and food waste.

Moreover, the new RBBC can also accept non-recyclable waste categories such as light tube and bulbs, medicine, glass, battery, electronic waste and food waste in an effort to reduce waste disposal from piling into landfills. Hazardous waste such as glass, battery and electronics are handled professionally and disposed safely to prevent environmental pollution caused by toxins and to ensure the recyclable parts are properly repurposed for future reuse.

The RBBC is now transformed into a self-service digitalized recycling drop off wall with brand new interior design. We have even integrated our loyalty program (Tack Club) into the system to allow patrons to collect Tack Points from their recycling efforts through their IPC app and exchange it for rewards such as free parking, shopping e-vouchers and much more.

It also features a user-friendly interactive touch screen that even children can reach and use to deposit their recyclable waste. This also serves as a great platform and hub to educate, nurture, and instil green habits in children from a young age while making recycling fun with their families.
