Singapore 4 cleanest towns: but how many cleaners do they unleash??

Congratulations to Ang Mo Kio-Yio Chu Kang, Bishan-Toa Payoh, Marine Parade & Tanjong Pagar for being honoured as the "cleanest" towns!But there would be no lavish celebration whatsoever as to avoid the left-over rubbish & general waste in the estates. Heh.

The announcement is as part of the first Town Council Management Report from Ministry of National Development.

I'm more interested in finding out how many cleaners these 4 towns employ compare to the rest of the towns. Of course the comparison ought to include on how many blocks or area coverage of each town. It will give a better & more meaningful result if these data are disclosed as well. Or perhaps, they alredy are included in the report card.

FOUR towns in Singapore have been identified as the "cleanest" towns.

They are Ang Mo Kio-Yio Chu Kang, Bishan-Toa Payoh, Marine Parade and Tanjong Pagar.

This was revealed in the first Town Council Management Report (TCMR) released by the Ministry of National Development (MND).

All 16 towns in Singapore had less than four encounters of litter per block, observed by the inspectors who made their rounds during October last year to March this year.

According to the report from MND, the rate of lift breakdowns were low, with an average of less than one per 10 lift breaking down each month in most towns.

Potong Pasir town, a single-member constituency (SMC), ranked the poorest in terms of maintenance and had the highest failure rate in lift automatic rescue device per month, compared to other constituencies.

Another SMC, Hougang town and Potong Pasir had more than six per cent of total households owing management fees for more than three months.

Both towns had more than 60 per cent of service and conservancy charges (S&CC) amount overdue.

The report is compiled from inspectors who surveyed 16 town councils which manage about 900,000 HDB flats.

It covered four main areas: cleanliness, maintenance, lift performance and service and conservancy charges.

From Asiaone, "Cleanest towns in Singapore".
