Some 500 residents spent part of their public holiday combing 164 blocks of flats for litter in Nee Soon South.

They were taking part in the area's annual No Cleaners' Day, meant to raise awareness about the work cleaners do on labour day.

In total, 500kg of rubbish was handpicked by the participants, which also included students and representatives from the area's merchants' associations.

Nee Soon GRC MP Lee Bee Wah later distributed $30 supermarket vouchers to the estate's 80 cleaners.
