The clutter lining a common corridor at Block 565 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3 has been removed.

Stomp first reported on the matter on July 18 after a resident, Stomper James, complained that he had difficulty pushing his elderly wheelchair-bound mother along the corridor.

He also expressed concern over the clutter being a potential fire hazard.

Ang Mo Kio Town Council (AMKTC) told Stomp that they have been reminding and providing assistance to the resident since 2021, encouraging and assisting them to clear the items obstructing the area.

AMKTC added that they are working closely with the Resident's Network and relevant agencies such as the Housing and Development Board (HDB) to extend their support and assistance to the resident.

When a reporter from Shin Min Daily News visited the scene, there were more than 40 umbrellas, 50 pairs of shoes and eight suitcases piled up outside James' neighbour's unit.

There were also old CDs, clothes, shoe cabinets, trolleys, bicycles and kettles.

On July 20, James shared with Stomp photos of town council workers helping to clear the clutter.

"I am very happy," he said.

"Thank you."
