Join hands to get rid of litter

As I walk along the streets, I see litter here and there. It is disappointing, especially since there are bins nearby to dispose of the litter.

Sometimes, when I pick up the litter, ants begin scrambling about.

Surely we do not want to attract pests in our neighbourhoods.

I hope Singaporeans can work hand in hand to reduce the amount of litter around.
