SUSTAINABILITY

Chairman’s Message

Chairman’s Message

Dear Residents

As we end another year amid an ongoing pandemic, it is time to reflect on achievements as well as areas that require improvement.

Sustainability is one of the most pressing topics currently and it strongly influences our work at Jurong-Clementi Town Council (JRTC). To mark the annual SG Clean Day, JRTC organised several tree planting and litter picking events as well as the launch of the CleanPod for the benefit of our residents. It’s heartening to see the residents’ response to our continuous endeavour to create green and clean spaces, parks and leisure facilities in the estate.

We have also ramped up our sustainability efforts across Jurong-Clementi at both organisational as well as operational levels. The e-waste recycling programme is one such initiative that focuses on JRTC’s sustainability drive. With several collection points throughout the neighbourhood, it is now easier for our residents to dispose of their old and unwanted electronic goods and batteries in a safe and environmentally-responsible manner.

Community living requires collective effort to create a pleasant and peaceful living environment for everyone. Issues such as hoarding and cluttering in common spaces can result in poor neighbourly relations. Hoarding may also impede rescue and evacuation efforts by the Singapore Civil Defence Force in the event of any fire incidents and other emergencies. Placement of personal items and parking of bicycles in the common areas are also not allowed. Residents are urged to keep the corridors, lift landings, stairwells, void decks and other common areas clear of any obstructions. For the removal of bulky items, residents may also contact the Town Council for assistance.

Let us keep our common spaces free and safe for everyone and build a better home together.

Finally, I would like to wish all the residents a happy New Year. Together, we can build a strong and caring community and look out for each other. Let’s continue to stay vigilant, practise safe distancing measures, and play our part in making Jurong-Clementi a neighbourhood that we are proud to call home.

亲爱的居民,

我们随着疫情进入新的一年,这既是回顾成就,也是检讨和改善的时机。

可持续发展是当务之急,也是我们市镇理事会工作的重点。去年的新加坡清洁日,市镇会举办了几次植树和捡垃圾活动,并设立“清洁工具厢”(CleanPod) ,提供器具供居民打扫使用。我们致力于绿化和维持邻里的空地、公园和休闲设施的整洁,居民的反应让我们感到欣慰。

为了永续发展,我们也加强了市镇会在组织和运营层面上的种种努力。电子废弃物回收计划就是一例。我们在整个邻里设立好几个电子废弃物的收集站,居民能以更轻松,更安全,更环保的方式来处理过时或不要的电子废弃物和电池。

我们的邻里需要大家共同努力来创造愉快和安宁的生活环境。在公共空间囤积杂物造成环境脏乱,会导致邻里关系恶化。囤积物品也可能妨碍民防部队在发生火灾或其他紧急事故的时候,所进行的救援和疏散工作。公共范围禁止堆放个人物件和停放脚车。请居民维持走廊、电梯间、楼梯间、一楼组屋空地和其他公共范围的通畅,没有障碍物。如有大件废物需要清理,居民也可联系市镇会寻求协助。

让我们每个人尽己力确保邻里公共空间畅通及安全,共同建设一个更美好的家园。

最后,我谨祝贺所有的居民新春快乐。只要齐心协力,我们可以建立一个充满爱心、彼此关怀的强大社区。我们也需要继续保持警惕,遵守防疫的安全距离措施,使裕廊 - 金文泰邻里成为大家引以为豪的家园。
