I did a recce sometime back in June for Sembawang and Selimang Beach. As before, the trash load for both sites remained moderate, mainly due to recreational activities in the area.
It is, however, important to note that there is an increased amount of plastic sheets in Selimang. These plastic sheets are usually dumped by passing ships. I remembered Scomi Marine, last year participants at Selimang, took up most of their energy removing these thick and heavy plastic sheets which are embedded deep in the sand.
Hence, for this year at Selimang, the appropriate strategy for Thomson Reuters would be to conserve their energy by removing other trash first before getting the whole team together and work on these plastic sheets.
Sembawang beach would be managed by Yasim from Yio Chu Kang CC Youth Group whose team has been with ICCS for a many years since his days in NYP Geo Council while Selimang beach would be managed by Wong Ley Kun from Thomson Reuters.
