DON’T THROW CIGARETTE BUTTS OUT OF THE CAR WINDOW, NEA COULD ISSUE $2,000 FINE IF PEOPLE SABO YOU

Drivers who have the bad habit of flicking your cigarette butts out of windows better beware. In early November 2017, one such car owner was shocked to receive a letter from NEA which demanded they name the driver who was driving the vehicle at the time of offence. NEA with the help of LTA took enforcement action on a tip-off from the public which alleged that the said driver threw his cigarette butt out of the car window along Tampines Avenue 5. If the driver did not cooperate with NEA, he could be subject to a fine as high as $2,000 over this littering offence.

Was dismayed to see this palm tree adorned with tea bags, obviously thrown from a higher floor and which had snagged on the leaves and branches. It was like a Christmas tree except that instead of pretty ornaments, this poor tree was festooned with used Dilmah tea bags!

VIVIAN BALAKRISHNAN: CLEANERS TO BE GIVEN ONE DAY OFF, RESIDENTS TO CLEAN UP OWN ESTATE

Cleaners with various town councils this year will be given a day off, with residents instead mobilised to clean up their own neighbourhoods, as part of fresh efforts to tackle the littering scourge. The standard of cleanliness in Singapore has fallen, with surveys showing that from 2006 to 2010, the number of litter items collected almost doubling, said Minister for the Environment and Water Resources Vivian Balakrishnan in Parliament today (March 11).
