Keeping Singapore Clean

Keep Clean,

KCS Keep Clean, Singapore! (KCS) is an annual month-long ground-up initiative led by the Public Hygiene Council.


Keep Clean, Singapore! 2023

Every year, the Public Hygiene Council (PHC) holds our flagship initiative, the Keep Clean, Singapore! (KCS) campaign, to raise awareness on the problem of littering and to nudge Singapore residents to uphold higher standards of hygiene and cleanliness in their everyday lives.

The KCS 2023 campaign will entail a launch event which will be held on Saturday 13 May, followed by a satellite event on Sunday 28 May, and finally, a closing event on Saturday 17 June. The launch event will also kick off a month-long of clean-up activities with our partners, various community groups and organisations (from 13 May to 17 June). To register your clean-up activity in support of KCS, click here.

Over the past few years, the PHC has been emphasising our efforts towards engaging students, youths and young families to encourage them to do their part for the environment. Their participation could take various forms, such as always binning trash responsibly, returning our crockery back to the tray return stations after meals, and keeping the school and public toilets clean and dry.

The PHC has engaged agency partners to systematically develop and implement strategic communications campaigns on various platforms, including delivering public messages through mainstream news media.  Please refer to our YouTube channel and follow us on Social Media at @KeepSGClean on TikTok Facebook and Instagram for regular updates.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Who will be involved?

Everyone. The Public Hygiene Council (PHC) has extended invitation to our supporters and partners of the KSC partners (i.e. schools, communities and organisations) to identify a location and lead activities in the month of KCS 2023. Public members are welcomed to organise or participate in any activities to show their support for KCS.

2. Where are the activities held?

Organisers may identify and target any shared community places such as residential estates, schools, parks, hawker centres and etc., to conduct the cleanup activities. 

3. When are the activities held?

Organisers are welcomed to conduct their activities on any day in the month of May.


4. What if we are unable to commit any day in KCS month?

Keeping Singapore Clean is a lifetime commitment and not just a one-day effort. We welcome groups and individuals to initiate their own programmes to encourage and educate good practices at shared community spaces. Through such sustained efforts, communities will take greater ownership to improve the cleanliness and hygiene conditions of these public spaces.
