Singapore — A member of the public complained about the mess left by other residents of the Housing Board block at the garbage chute.

One of the photos he shared showed numerous garbage bags lying on the ground near the garbage chute, which was left open.

“How to dispose rubbish??? Passage way all blocked!” he wrote in his caption.

In a reply to a comment, he also shared that this incident happened in a Housing Board block at Tampines Street 45.

A few netizens recommended that the poster bring the issue up to his town council, so they could look into the issue and ameliorate it. One netizen, in particular, suggested that CCTVs could be installed at the rubbish chute area to deter residents from carelessly discarding their rubbish.

A netizen remarked that she preferred the arrangement whereby everyone had to access the rubbish chute from inside their homes so that everyone would have to deal with their own rubbish.
