SENGKANG RESIDENT FINED $19,800 FOR REPEATEDLY THROWING CIGARETTE BUTTS OUT OF WINDOW

The National Environmental Agency (NEA) has fined a man $19,800 and sentenced him to five hours of Corrective Work Order for committing 34 acts of high-rise littering.

This is the highest fine meted out in the history of Singapore. The 38-year-old repeat offender insisted on throwing cigarette butts out of his home at Block 224C Compassvale Walk between Mar 13 and 16, 2014.

This is despite the numerous attempts to outreach and educate the man on the risks of doing so after residents filed numerous complaints with NEA. NEA subsequently deployed a surveillance camera which caught the man in throwing his butts 34 times.

In total, NEA deployed cameras at nearly 600 locations with cases of persistent high-rise littering, and took 206 enforcement actions against recalcitrant offenders.
