Go green with OCBC
Recycle your red packets at any OCBC Branch

Since last year, we have encouraged customers to recycle their red packets by providing recycling boxes at our branches that are also made of recycled materials. This year, customers can once again join us in our efforts to reduce carbon emissions by recycling their red packets from 15 to 26 February 2021.

Customers can drop both used and excess red packets into these boxes at all our branches across Singapore. The red packets and recycling boxes will be pulped to be made into products such as cardboard boxes. Last year, we collected 4,000 kg of red packets and these were pulped to make 10,411 cardboard boxes.

How do customers make online reservations for New Notes?

Customers will be required to enter their ATM, Credit or Debit Card number and card PIN for verification and will be required to have a valid mobile number registered with OCBC Bank.

For customers who do not have an ATM, Credit Card or Debit card, they can walk into any of our branches to apply for an ATM card on the spot.

Customers may also proceed to the nearest OCBC ATM to update their particulars if they do not have a mobile number registered with OCBC Bank.

How do customers know if the reservation made via OCBC’s Chinese New Year New Online Reservation Service is confirmed?

Upon confirmation of a reservation slot, an SMS will be sent to the customer’s mobile number registered with the Bank containing the reservation date and the selected collection branch. Please take note of the denominations of the notes you have reserved as they will not be reflected in the confirmation SMS.

Can customers amend the initial selection of the branch for collection, the date of collection, or the amount of New Notes reserved after submitting their reservation online?

After submitting a reservation through OCBC’s Chinese New Year New Notes Online Reservation Service, no changes to the reservation details may be made.
