Keep Clean, Singapore 2017
This year, more than 600 participants together with Mr Masagos Zulkifli, Mr Baey Yam Keng, Mr Desmond Choo, Ms Cheng Li Hui and Mr Sin Boon Ann did their part for “Keep Clean, Singapore!” by picking up litters around the estate as part of an initiative to inculcate self-reliance without depending solely on the hard work of the cleaners.
Aside from residents, schools in Tampines including Temasek Polytechnic, Grassroots volunteers and Voluntary Welfare Organisations also joined in the townwide exercise.
“After going through today’s activity, we realised that every small piece of litter matters too. It would help greatly if everyone can make it a habit to dispose of them appropriately,” shared 15 year old Nur Ummi Raatul who volunteered together with her classmates from Dunman Secondary School.
In a collective effort, a total of 122.6kg of trash and 72.06kg of recyclables were collected.
