Residents in Yuhua will see more green features in their ward next year.

It will pilot the HDB’s Greenprint programme to encourage sustainable and eco-friendly living in existing public housing estates.

For a start, construction of underground pipes for a pneumatic refuse collection system will commence early next year.

In the system, waste will be sucked through underground pipes to centralised collection areas.

Works to install solar panels, vertical greenery and secured bicycle parking facilities will also begin during the same period.

By mid-year, HDB will kick off the construction of green roofs at nine low-rise blocks.

In the last quarter of 2014, lifts at 18 blocks will be made more energy-efficient through the Elevator Energy Regeneration System.
