After Many Months, Many Lines Up (2 of 3)

As too much time has already been wasted, the relevant people can choose not to continue to ignore the suggestions of many people from the past till now. It seems also too tough to come out of the sleeping mode, and to take steps to work on reducing wastage from junk mails.

    • NEA has a long-term plan for one recycling bin per HDB block (for Sengkang maybe on year 2014), with recycling bins placed at open areas within HDB estates.
    • NEA has also explained its restraint from putting up recycling bin at void deck (as suggested by TC) due to fire hazard.
    • The unintended litters from junk mails have become many hot spots for fire hazards, and also pose safety hazards to HDB residents, especially the elderly.
    • There were actually many requests since many years back (from internet searches), but seems that nothing much has been done regarding junk mail?
    • For returned mail, residents should be advised to discard rejected addressed letters into SingPost Return Mail letter box.
    • Few months back, many residents had received copies of IKEA catalog (374 pages, value @ $5.00) and Spring publication (41 pages, value @ $1.00?).
    • However, there were few copies of IKEA and Spring found discarded around letter box area, which I put the unwanted copies into SingPost Return Mail letter box.
    • Hopefully SingPost would be socially responsible to collect back the still useful material and returned all unwanted catalog to IKEA.
