The National Environment Agency (NEA) has dispelled a rumour circulating on WhatsApp, regarding $200 fines issued out to patrons of hawker centres and coffeeshops who threw used tissues into stall utensils after finishing their food.
The message on WhatsApp further revealed that a friend of the author had been subjected to the fine recently.
NEA has issued an official statement.
In a post on their Facebook page, the NEA said:
“NEA is aware of a message circulating online which claims that leaving behind your used tissue in your bowl, plate or cup will lead to a $200 fine from NEA.
“We would like to clarify that NEA has not been issuing fines for such acts.
“ NEA would however like to remind members of the public to dispose of their rubbish properly after their meals as an act of graciousness towards cleaners and other patrons.”
