National Day coastal cleanup 2013 – 42 volunteers remove 752kg of marine trash in 75 trash bags and 36 bulky items

In celebration of Singapore’s 48th National Day, 42 volunteers worked hard on a Saturday morning of 10th August 2013 and removed 752 kg of marine trash which was polluting our precious Lim Chu Kang mangroves. The rubbish in 75 trash bags and 36 bulky items were set aside at the Trash Disposal Point above the waterline and close to Lim Chu Kang Road end where NEA’s Department of Public Cleanliness will arrange for a contractor to remove and dispose of that load.

Thanks to everyone for their fine effort!
