Boatman works hard scooping out rubbish to keep the Singapore River clean

Boatman works hard scooping out rubbish to keep the Singapore River clean
Thanks to this boatman who steers a motor boat up and down a river to scoop up dead leaves and debris, our river is kept clean, says STOMPer Boatman.

In an email to STOMP today (June 30), the STOMPer says:

"These pictures were taken at the Singapore River. The boatman steers a motor boat up and down the river.

"His job is to scoop up the dead leaves and debris to keep our waterways clean.

"As seen in the pictures, there is an orange floater at the mouth of a canal to retain the dead leaves and debris.

"Many dead leaves can be found in our rivers.

"It takes a lot of effort to keep our rivers clean. So next time before you throw your drink can or cigarette box into the river, think of the people who have to clean up the rubbish in the river."
