$100 incentive for early disposal of e-scooters that don't meet safety standards: LTA

Image for illustration only

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) is offering a $100 “early disposal incentive” for each non-safety-compliant e-scooter sent in for free disposal at designated disposal points from Monday (23 September) to 30 November, 2019.

In a media release on Friday, it said that such measures are aimed at encouraging personal mobility device (PMD) owners to dispose of their non-compliant devices early. Authorities brought forward the deadline to comply with the new standard from 1 January 2021 to 1 July 2020.

The LTA said that, for safety reasons, non-UL2272 PMD owners should discard their devices only at the designated disposal points set up by LTA-appointed e-waste recyclers across HDB estates or at LTA’s Sin Ming office.

To apply for the early disposal incentive, e-scooter owners must log into their SingPass/CorpPass account and submit an online application at the One Motoring website to dispose of their devices.
