Keeping our Town Clean and Green

The month of November was all about sprucing up Holland-Bukit Panjang GRC & Bukit Panjang SMC as residents contributed to tree planting efforts for a greener town. The nationwide Tree Planting Day, which marked its 50th anniversary in 2021, coincides with the OneMillionTrees movement that aims to transform Singapore into a City in Nature.

Residents joined their MPs in planting a total of 34 young Cratoxylum Maingayi, Tristaniopsis obovata, and Tristaniopsis merguensis trees that will play a role in preserving the environment for generations to come. Neighbourhood clean-ups and cleaners’ appreciation day were also held along tree planting in November to encourage residents to take charge of their estate’s cleanliness, and more importantly to recognise the efforts of our cleaners.

As HBPTC works towards becoming a greener, zero waste, and energy efficient town, these existing efforts complement newer green-focused initiatives we have implemented such as the launch of ALBA E-Waste recycling bins and the trial of food waste digestors with Biomax. To further encourage recycling, SGRecycle SGRecycle stations that collect waste paper in return for incentives have also been placed around town. Join us in this journey to make Holland-Bukit Panjang sustainable for all!
