To encourage more Singaporeans to throw their trash into the bin, the Public Hygiene Council has partnered with Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts to create eye-catching litter bins referred to as Trashemons bins. These bins will be deployed all around Singapore and the exact locations will be revealed on the Public Hygiene Council’s social media channels.
Three Trashemons to be deployed
There are three Trashemons to spot: Timmy TumTrash, Claire ClawTrash and Eddy EyeTrash. These Trashemon designs are the winning submissions for the Public Hygiene Council and Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts collaboration.
Second-year Diploma in Graphic Communication student Ms. Guo Yihan, who designed two of the Trashemons, said, “I was excited to be able to play a part in getting more people to throw their rubbish away properly. And now, thanks to the PHC, my designs have come to life! I hope that our bins’ quirky designs will help remind everyone to feed them instead of littering”.
“Feed My Trashemons” design competition
Secondary school students have the chance to bring more exciting bin designs to life by taking part in the “Feed My Trashemons” design competition. This competition is open to secondary school students aged 13 to 17 years old to showcase their creativity.
The top three winners of the competition will receive cash prizes and their winning designs will be showcased at the Public Hygiene Council’s annual flagship event “Keep Clean, Singapore!” next year. Students are encouraged to share how their designs promote anti-littering, recycling and appreciation of neighbourhood cleaners.
