CGS 2021 - Bukit Timah

Bukit Timah rolled out various flagship programmes to support the Clean and Green Singapore Initiative.

Key initiatives:

  • The Upcycled Décor transformation of Bukit Timah Truss Bridge - a two-step process involving 30 grassroots leaders and 70 residents. First, residents and volunteers picked up litter around their neighbourhood through the BIN-IT @ Bukit Timah initiative. The litter (e.g. used plastic bags, bottles and straws) was then upcycled and transformed into lanterns and flowers which were used to decorate the Bukit Timah Truss Bridge.

    This initiative brought festive cheer to the residents in the area. More importantly, this initiative motivated residents to take ownership of their estate and keep it clean.

  • Dengue Prevention - Bukit Timah had large dengue clusters in the private estates earlier on. The division supported NEA in the drone inspection of roof gutters in the estates. Grassroots leaders and volunteers also engaged approximately 3,000 households through an outreach campaign. All these efforts contributed towards eradicating dengue clusters in the estates.
  • PAWsitive Norms Campaign - an initiative that promotes responsible dog-walking. This initiative increased neighbourliness and reduced complaints and conflicts relating to dog poo.
