About Us

Established in 1993, Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu Chi Foundation (Singapore) is an accredited Institution of Public Character (IPC). For the past over two decades, the Foundation has been actively contributing to society in the areas of charity, medical aid, education, humanistic culture, and environmental protection.

We bridge and connect volunteers with those who need help; and in the process, we work out ways to help those who fall through society's safety net. Our work is manpower-intensive, but fortunately, we have an army of dedicated volunteers who generously devote their valuable time to help and care for the needy and underprivileged.

Our Wish List


Every second Sunday of the month is Tzu Chi's Recycling Day. In close to 40 neighbourhoods across the island, Tzu Chi has garnered the support of various Residents' Committees, to transform the void decks of HDB blocks, communal pavilions, activity areas, etc. into temporary recycling points. Residents living nearby are invited to bring their recyclable items for sorting and recycling on Recycling Day. They are also encouraged to bring their children along to learn about environmental protection.

We warmly invite you and your family to join our ranks of environmental defenders and serve as guardians of Mother Earth!

Tzu Chi Singapore Community Recycling Points Island-wide:

*Sorting of Recyclables
The recyclables in Tzu Chi's Recycling Points are sorted into the following categories to help reduce the burden of the recycling merchants in handling the recyclables and also increase the sales value of the materials:

Paper: waste paper, envelope, newspaper, book, magazine, cardboard, carton box
Plastics: plastic bag, bottle, container, CD & DVD
Metals: aluminium can, tin can, metal container & utensil, copper wire, metal parts
Electrical appliances: computer, printer, TV, DVD player, fan, oven, rice cooker
Glass: glass bottle, container
Clothing: shirt, pants, belt, handbag, backpack, shoes, soft toy
Others: umbrella, ironing board

*Please note that the following items are not collected at our recycling points:
Styrofoam, PVC material, rubber container, furniture, wood product, pottery, aquarium, mirror, pillow, diaper, undergarment, socks

We seek your cooperation in doing some preliminary sorting at home. If the items have been contaminated by oil stains, food residues, etc., kindly please clean them at home before sending them for recycling. In this way, we can prevent cross-contamination with other recyclables, while also safeguard the volunteers doing the sorting work.
