Go green with OCBC
Recycle your red packets at any OCBC bank branch

We have, since 2020, provided recycling boxes made from recycled materials at our branches. This is to make it more convenient for you to recycle your red packets.

Help reduce carbon emissions by depositing your red packets from 13 February to 1 March 2024.

You can drop off both used and excess red packets into these boxes at all our branches across Singapore. The red packets and recycling boxes will be pulped and made into products such as cardboard boxes. Over the past 4 years, we collected over 12,000kg of red packets that were pulped to make cardboard boxes.

FAQs
What do I need to reserve notes online?

To allow us to verify your identity, you will need to enter your OCBC ATM/credit/debit card number and date of birth when you book the appointment with us. We must also have your current mobile number so that you will receive the SMS confirmation SMS upon successful booking.

If you do not have an existing OCBC ATM/credit/debit card, you may visit any of our branches to apply for an ATM card on the spot.

If you have not given us your current mobile number/email address, you may go to OCBC Digital app, OCBC Internet Banking or any OCBC Bank ATM/Service kiosk to update.

Please note that if you update your mobile number/email address via OCBC Internet Banking or the OCBC Digital app less than 12 hours before making your booking, you will still receive your booking confirmation at your old mobile number/email address. This is because a cooling-off period of 12 hours applies before such changes take effect.

How do I know if my reservation has been confirmed?

We will send an SMS – containing the branch/premier centre, date and time at which you should collect your notes – to the mobile number in our records. We will also send you a confirmation email if we have your email address.

Can I amend the branch, date or time at which I should collect my notes, or the number and mix of notes selected, after I have booked my appointment?

We regret this will not be possible as the notes are sent out to the branch/premier centre selected at the time of booking. This is to ensure that all our customers get the notes they selected at their preferred timing and branch/premier centre.
