Continuation from yesterday's post...
Ash from mainland Singapore is shipped here into this building on Semakau Landfill.
They are then loaded into trucks that will then fill up the cells you saw yesterday. All these yukky stuff are our rubbish!
But the rubbish island can be made into a recreation area!
Our tour guide, who is the NEA staff giving us educational tours.
Some of the people who joined in the education tour. You would not believe that this is a landfill right?
This is what the NEA staff told us, is the golden chain of Semakau. It's used to prevent boats going into this area.
What was interesting here is that it was low tide, and the water from this man made lagoon is draining out. At the same time, waves are coming in. But current from the water draining is stronger.
