Why burn offerings on pavement along Bukit Batok Ave 2 when there's a metal bin nearby?

A Stomper saw a group of people burning offerings on a pavement along Bukit Batok Avenue 2 this afternoon (Oct 30) at around 12pm.

In a photo sent by the Stomper, a metal bin can be seen just a few metres away from the group, which raises the question of why they did not utilise it.

Said the Stomper in a telephone interview:

"I don't know why they chose to burn the offerings on the pavement instead of the bin. 

"It is unfair to those who want to use the pavement."

The group of around five people were there for about 15 minutes and the ground was strewn with ashes after they left.
