SINGAPORE: The top three complaints received by the one-year-old Department of Public Cleanliness are: littered public areas, choked drains and discarded bulky items.
Other complaints included carcasses on roads, as well as overflowing rubbish bins.
These feedback figures regarding public cleanliness were revealed by the National Environment Agency (NEA) on Saturday.
The agency set up the Department of Public Cleanliness in April last year to integrate the cleaning functions of various government agencies. It also started a hotline and an email address for public feedback.
Since then, the number of feedback received totalled almost 21,000, working out to nearly 1,800 a month.
There had also been unusual requests and queries -- such as getting authorities to retrieve lost items and queries on missing pets.
Members of the public can give their feedback via the 1800-600-3333 hotline or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. - CNA/al
