SINGAPORE: A viewer alerted Channel NewsAsia that cleaners of the Bukit Panjang canal, opposite Block 402, have been throwing the rubbish collected from one side of the canal to the other side.

By 9am every morning, residents said one of the cleaners would take a photo of the clean drain and send it to PUB, which is in charge of the canal.

But what is not shown is how the rubbish, which has not been properly disposed, will flow into the nearby reservoir.

The PUB said it would study the video footage first before making any comments.
