About the first question. Why is Singapore so clean? The answer is the rules about gabege are very strict in Singapore. About the second question.If people throw a cigarette butt or garbage away in the street do they have to receive some punishment for that? The answer is people are punished. People are fined $500 (\35000) for a cigarette butt and $1000(\70000) for garbage.
We are now studying about garbage problem too.
