Yishun Dam is on the northern coast of Singapore, on the side that faces Malaysia. An often forgotten-about part of Singapore’s coasts, Yishun Dam is the recipient of an assortment of marine plastic waste of various sizes. We need your help to brighten up Singapore’s coasts!
[Sign up for the activity at the Eventbrite link which will be opened nearer to the date! – Only participants who have signed up via Eventbrite will be confirmed a spot!]
Note: Do only sign up if you are able to join in! Signups who have “ghosted” by not turning up on the actual day without any notification will be blacklisted for future events 🙂
This is a cleanup session that is held in English.
We will meet at Yishun Temporary Bus Interchange (a five minute walk from Northpoint City Shopping Centre/ Yishun MRT station) at 3pm, at Berth B1 for bus service 103. After a short introductory talk, we will board bus 103 to the stop “Aft ST Airport Svcs” and walk 10 minutes to the site of our clean-up. After the clean-up, we will return to the bus interchange together via public transport.
If you are planning to drive, you may choose to park at the HDB carparks around Block 425 Yishun (about a 25 minute walk to the clean-up site). There are no car parks near Yishun Dam.
==What to Bring==
Participants are advised to bring a filled water bottle, sunscreen, a re-usable poncho (the clean-up will continue in light rain), an EZ-Link Card, and light snacks (optional). Participants are discouraged from bringing unnecessary electronics and valuables (e.g. laptops). Most importantly, bring a big smile and helping hands.
Green Nudge will be providing the necessary equipment and tools for the clean-up, including gloves, tongs, trash bag, first-aid kit and water refill.
Note: This venue requires some climbing in order to reach the cleanup site. Young children should be supervised by adults! Please be prepared to be hands-on in the activity! 🙂
