Forest turned into dumping ground: hopefully NEA will take action

 Forest turned into dumping ground: hopefully NEA will take action
STOMPer Indiana Jones was disturbed that this beautiful forest at Admiralty Road West was turned into a dumping ground. He is worried that the place will soon be a breeding ground for mosquitoes, and hopes NEA will take action.

He said in an email to STOMP today (Mar 22):

"These pictures were taken near the forest at Admiralty Road West which faces the Johor Straits.

"From the road the forest looks green and beautiful. This is the favourite haunt of some of the macaque monkeys which usually come to the river to forage for food.

"But if you were to take a walk into the forest you will see discarded lanterns, old fridges, plastic boxes and even old furniture.

"Of late some lorry drivers have been dumping these old furniture and boxes in the forest during the night. These boxes will soon be a fertile breeding ground for mosquitoes after last week's heavy showers.

"I hope the NEA will clear all these garbage and a fortiori, erect a warning signboard to tell these irresponsible drivers that 'dumping is an offence and the fine is $1 000'."
