Sail with us to Singapore's only landfill - Pulau Semakau. A biodiversity haven to birds such as the great-billed heron and creatures of the intertidal shores, it is also the receptacle for incinerated waste produced by Singapore's 6 million population daily. This island is now fast filling up, and is set to reach its full capacity by 2035. (Source: NEA Website & CNA, 9 Nov 2023)
