Nee Soon Town Council has alerted the National Environment Agency (NEA) to high-rise littering at Block 217 Yishun Street 21 after a Stomper found noodles on her just-washed laundry on Sunday (Nov 3).

Stomper Zema alerted Stomp to the incident and shared photos of the noodles that had soiled a freshly-laundered towel she had hung out to dry.

She said that this is not the first time this has happened and that she has been experiencing this since June.

"Every Saturday or Sunday this happens and I have to rewash my clothes, wasting my water and time," she said.

"I don't know which floor the rubbish comes from.

"Sometimes it's noodles, dirty water or packed food.

She told Stomp she has reported this to the Housing and Development Board (HDB) and town council.

In response to a Stomp query, a Nee Soon Town Council spokesman said: "Nee Soon Town Council was first notified of this issue on 3 November 2019.

"Cleaners were deployed to clean up as soon as we received the feedback.

"Town Council had also sent out notices to residents in the block to advise them against high rise littering and to be considerate to lower floor residents.

"In view of the issue, we have also alerted the National Environmental Agency (NEA) for their next action.

"The resident had been informed as well.

"We would also like to take this opportunity to urge residents to refrain from dispensing water or throwing any litter out of their window, for the safety of their others."
