SG Clean Day

The Public Hygiene Council designated 25 April 2021 as the inaugural SG Clean Day in partnership with all 17 Town Councils. Scheduled to be held quarterly, all Town Councils and partners will cease sweeping at selected areas of participating housing estates, public parks, attractions, reservoirs, shopping malls for a day with the aim of showing what the amount of litter there will be when we go without cleaners. This also helps us appreciate our cleaners more.

The upcoming SG Clean Day will be held on Sunday, 30 October 2022, and new partners will be part of this initiative by ceasing cleaning at selected areas of their malls for a day. This is a new addition to the cessation of sweeping at dormitories, public parks, gardens, park connectors, reservoirs and housing estates across 17 towns. We encourage everyone to take personal responsibility in keeping our estates and parks clean by binning their trash or organising a clean-up in your neighbourhood. 

To organise a clean-up at our beaches, simply register via this link.

Picnic in the City

Sunday, 30 Oct 2022, 8:30am - 10:30am @ Somerset Youth Park
Guest of Honour: Mr Alvin Tan, Minister of State for Culture, Community & Youth

Get excited! Our iconic city - Orchard Road will be bustling with life, meaningful adventures, and other fun things to do in October!

Organised by the Public Hygiene Council in conjunction with SG Clean Day, “Picnic in the City” will take place on the morning of Sunday, 30 October 2022, from 8:30am to 10:30am at Somerset Youth Park! Through this event, we hope to inspire more to adopt sustainable lifestyle and coming forward to show support to keep Singapore clean.

 

Join us for a full-filled Sunday morning. We will kick off the morning with a scavenger litter-hunt as we explore Orchard Road to find litter themed objects and end off with a picnic in city. You may also do your part to keep Singapore clean by picking up litter as you collect your scavenger hunt! Litter-picking tongs will be provided. Young and old, individuals, families and friends. Participate in a group, as a couple, or individually!

 

Limited edition foldable and reusable Supermon picnic mats and goodies bags will be given out to all participants who complete the hunt.
After the hunt, participants can find a sweet spot to laze the day away within the Somerset Youth Park, soaking in the nature, fresh air and spend quality time with their families. It is a perfect Sunday morning for families and friends to enjoy themselves against the backdrop of the vibrant iconic Orchard Road shopping malls. They will also be entertained by live performances hosted by UFM100.3 DJs and lots of fun activities such as photo-takings with your favourite DJs, appreciating our cleaners’ ceremony and get ready to strike a pose with Toilemon, shake hands with Trashemon or give Trayremon a big hug for the family album!

This experience is a great way for adults and kids to learn the importance of binning litter properly and cleaning up after themselves!
