  • Eunos Heights Recycling Programme

    Since 19 April 2009 to end 2011, the RC partnered Veolia in the Recycling Exchange IniTiative (REIT) which saw our residents recycling more than 20 tonnes of recyclables.

    Since Feb 2012, the RC partnered SembCorp's "Cash for Thrash" programme, raising funds for programmes that cater for low-income families in the precinct.

Residents say “YES!” to Lift Upgrading

In the recent concluded polling for the HDB Lift Upgrading Programme (LUP) and the Aljunied Town Council LUP, majority of the residents have said “YES!” to lift upgrading. As such, lifts that stop at every storey would be available to Eunos Heights residents!

The LUP was launched by our MP, Mr Zainul Abidin Rasheed, who is also Senior Minister of State for Foreign Affairs. Also present at the ceremony was HDB Deputy CEO (Building) Mr Sng Cheng Keh and Eunos Citizens’ Consultative Committee Chairman Mr Sim Wai Chin, BBM.

In his speech, Eunos Zone ‘3’ RC Chairman Mr Sawaran Singh welcomed residents and thanked residents for their support over the 26 years. The RC was also celebrating its 26th Anniversary along with the launching ceremony. Indeed, the chairs were all filled up before the ceremony begun.

Preparation for the HDB LUP took months of liaison between grassroots leaders and HDB. In order for the LUP to kick off, 75% residents of the block must cast their votes, out of which there must be a majority that want the lifts.

There were 2 blocks of flats in Eunos Zone ‘3’ that only had 15 eligible voters each. With the small number of voters, it meant that if a good 6 families did not turn up, there will be no lift upgrading for those blocks. As such, grassroots leaders from the Residents’ Committee (RC) visited the residents, house-to-house, to encourage them to participate in the voting.

The efforts paid of and now residents would enjoy the benefit of a more convenient way of going in and coming out of their homes.
