National Day cleanup – sixty four clear more than a tonne of rubbish in 133 bags of trash from Lim Chu Kang beach and mangrove

64 volunteers answered the call and trooped down to Lim Chu Kang road end today to clear the rubbish strewn along Lim Chu Kang beach and mangrove in an early celebration of National Day!

After a mere 60 minutes of intense but back-breaking effort, the sixty-four volunteers removed 1187.5kg in 133 trash bags and numerous bulky items. Last year’s effort saw 42 volunteers clear 811.3kg of trash in 116 trash bags and 20 bulky items.
