As a move to increase environmental awareness, Yellow Bin launched an environmental protection plan, appealing to Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) for collaboration. Once a month, Yellow Bin would visit the partners and collect recyclable waste and items. This would assist the busy working professionals on housekeeping, generating environmental leaders besides building a greener community.
