Raymond's letter to The Straits Times: Stop property flier litter at flats

My letter to The Straits Times on the above matter is published today, Monday 25th May 2015.

Property agents are littering the homes and letter boxes of residents in the Ang Mo Kio Avenue 5 precinct, currently undergoing a Home Improvement Programme, with flyers practically every day.

Part-timers hired by property agents are using sticks to shove the flyers into the mail boxes. When this fails, they would go up to the flats and stick it on the gates or under the gaps in the doors. When the resident leaves his door open, the flyers get thrown into his home.

Many of the flyers end up as litter – as littering is an offence, aren’t property agents and those they hire committing an offence?

The National Environment Agency and the Housing Board need to take steps to put a stop to this practice.
