New Cutlery Bank Title

Welcome to the Cutlery Bank site!

Many events in Hwa Chong require food catering, such as Faculty Outings or inter-school events and camps. However, most of these events make use of single-use plastics to package the food. This has resulted in the dual effects of increased plastic waste as well as reinforcing a mentality that prioritizes convenience.

With the Cutlery Bank, we aim to:

  • Reduce the usage of plastic food packaging by HCI students and staff
  • Promote a culture of sustainability and care by providing students and staff with accessible cutlery

We are open and ready to serve you 🙂 All cutlery can be loaned from the Thrift Shop, located at the Inner Plaza. If you wish to loan a large quantity of cutlery, we recommend booking the cutlery beforehand on our online form.

What do we provide?

A plethora of cutlery for you or your organisation, including:


  • Plates
  • Bowls
  • Lunchboxes
  • Forks
  • Spoons
  • Knives
  • Chopsticks
  • Water Bottles

Deposit System for Loaning

30 pieces and below:

A $5 deposit to be paid, which will be returned to you upon confirmation that the cutlery has been washed and returned.
