Did you know that 10,000 kg of trash is reported to be collected per day by the cleaners from the Marina Catchment alone?
Since our establishment in 1998, Waterways Watch Society has been committed to keeping our environment and waterways clean and safe for all to enjoy, as well as promote environmental ownership to all ages and abilities, especially the young generation. In just 2018, WWS reached out to over 24,079 people with our talks, learning trails and clean-up programmes and collected over 6,100 kg of trash from the Marina Reservoir alone during our clean-up programmes. Despite our efforts and that of our cleaners, our waters are still not truly clean. And the pollution is affecting our source of drinking water, animals and us.
Our reputation as a Clean and Green City owes greatly to the hard work of our cleaning staff and waste collectors. Singapore has about five million people and 70,000 cleaners. We cannot simply rely on the efforts of our cleaners and waste collectors in keeping our environment, waters and home clean! Preventing is better than cleaning up. Public awareness and individual ownership are very important and effective solution tools for the prevention of water pollution.
