SINGAPORE: Yuhua residents got together on Sunday in a mass effort to give their estate a makeover.

Armed with watering cans, residents helped to make the environment greener by planting new trees.

They also cleared and recycled unwanted items at their HDB estate, including old furniture, newspapers and household items.

A decoration contest was also held to transform ubiquitous litter bins into works of art.

This was part of the Clean and Green Singapore programme to encourage residents to care for their environment.

Joining residents in the event was Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office Grace Fu, who is also the Member of Parliament for Yuhua Single—member Constituency.
