GOVT SHOULD DO MORE TO HELP ELECTRONIC WASTES DISPOSAL

I believe our government isn't doing enough to prevent or minimise the very real and urgent problem of pollution caused by old electronic wastes, ranging from CRT monitors, TVs, cell phones, personal computers etc. These gadgets and devices contain numerous toxic substances and if improperly discarded can cause various environmental problems. I hope that the government can initiate and upkeep an island wide program for residents to safely dispose these devices safely so that they can be recycled.

NEA DOES NOTHING: RESIDENTS PLAGUED BY SMOKE FROM RESTAURANT FOR YEARS

My family and I have been suffering from this polluting and health hazardous charcoal bbq smoke from a Bbq restaurant at 530 Geylang road 好张记烧烤, ever since we moved in Oct 2014. We have complained to NEA countless times. (Fyi, my upstairs neighbor has also complained to NEA few years ago) NEA was told that the restaurant has added carbon filter (with photo proof from the owner)and whatnot but NOTHING HAS CHANGED as we are still enduring the smoke nuisance EVERYDAY especially on weekends.
