The SITE RECCE is a critical step before cleanup to evaluate the actual situation as this influences how you manage your cleanup and allows you to address safety issues.AFTER you have conducted your Site Recce, do chat with your Zone Captain about details – they visit these sites every year.

1. Recee of the cleanup site

slide7

Things to prepare before a site recce - 1. Obtain a map of the area from: Google Maps Streetdirectory maps NParks webpage2. The tidal level of the recce should be the same as the ICCS date; use Mobile Geographics

1. Recee of the cleanup site

slide8

1.1 - Accessibility of siteHow to get there? Describe.What is the distance between the carparks / bus-stops and the site. Mark on a map. Is there a place for vehicles to wait? Where are the boundaries of the site? How large is it?

1. Recee of the cleanup site

location and boundaries of the site
Location and boundaries of the site

Are there any landmarks in the area? Bus-stops?

Meeting Points and facilities?

Use Google Maps.

slide10

1.2 - Meeting Point and facilities. Where is the “Meeting Point”? In parks, take note of sign post numbers and mark those on a map; these are used by police, ambulance and NParks.Where are the nearby shelters in case of bad weather?Where are the nearby toilets?

1. Recee of the cleanup site

slide11
Some sites may be far away from the bus depot. It is important to gauge on the time taken to walk to the site so that organisers can determine on reporting time and leaving time.

How long to actually get there?

slide12

1.3 - Trash a. What is the estimated trash load? (How many can work the site)b. Where is the Trash Collection Point? Where you accumulate and weigh trash. c. Where is the Trash Disposal Point? Where you leave trash bags behind for NEA contractors to pickup. Usually near a bin centre or rubbish collection point.

1. Recee of the cleanup site

slide13

What is the trash load like?

How many people can effectively work the site for 90mins?

slide14

The Trash Collection Point/Weighing Station

Trash Collection Point(/s) should be located at a convenient and appropriate distance from the cleanup site.

Weighing stations can set up at several TCPs to facilitate the removal of trash from a heavy load sites and consolidated later to at a single Trash Disposal Point.

slide15

1.4 - Safety Identify safety concerns, e.g. hornets, snakes or lots of glass or syringes. Steep slopes, slippery rocks, suitability for children.Look for locations of rain shelters.You and your assistants must know the best routes to the nearest hospital location in case of an emergency.

How does an Organiser prepare?

  • Recce of cleanup site
  • Register and brief participants
  • Logistics
  • Transport
  • Data Collection
  • Communication
slide17

2. Recruiting participants

Number of participants are determined by the trash load of a particular site and its ability to accommodate participants.

The Zone Captains usually help to -determine this during Site Allocation exercise.

Suggestion – use Google Forms

Zone Captains will liase with NEA and /or NParks for some of you

ensure all data is properly recorded on data cards
Ensure all data is properly recorded on Data Cards
  • Note down:
    • Total weight
    • Total number of trash bags

Every three cards are counted into one NEW card if neccessary (so bring extra)

Continue until there is only one card per SITE

Which site are you in? Clearly indicate on the card

Do you know the total number of people working on the card?

The total distance/area covered?

It’s IMPORTANT!
