Environment Watch Group in North East District
The North East District has launched an Environment Watch Group to tackle environment issues.
By early next year, the group, formed by residents and grassroots leaders, will take on issues such as anti-littering, dengue prevention, energy efficiency and resource conservation.
It will patrol estates to educate residents as part of the Clean & Green Singapore 2013 campaign.
The group was first initiated by Punggol North in February this year where 30 trained volunteers conducted monthly educational rounds in their precinct to educate dog owners to maintain good hygiene and cleanliness standards
A series of community programmes will also be introduced to encourage residents to take action for the environment under the "Green Tampines "initiative.
