How Singapore deals with its waste...pretty incredible! 🌿🌿🌿

Nas Daily
Everyone needs to see this.

I report back to you something that almost no tourists get to see here in Singapore. Because not many people wanna visit or get permission to visit a landfill....

But here, you might wanna do that. Their landfills almost feel like resorts. They are just insanely clean. Here is how they did it:

They made an Island in the middle of the ocean, they enclosed a big pool of ocean water by dumping sand all around it. On the maind island, they burn their trash, filter the smoke for any pollutants, they ship the ashes to this Island and bury them under these waters. All while keeping everything clean. Literally 30 meters outside of the landfills, there is a fish farm and it's completely 100% safe!

Around the Island, there is wildlife, birds, animals, beaches, you name it. It just so happens to have tons of ashes buried underwater right next to it.

Obviously this is more expensive way to treat waste. But boy, it blew my mind and I hope you like it!!
