rubbish chute

A familiar sight to many of us HDB dwellers

Cockroaches?
Bad Odour?
Inconvenience?

Increasingly, new developments are starting to house their rubbish chutes outside of the apartment. The most common complaint about rubbish chute hopper is that cockroaches and foul odours could infiltrate into the residential apartments, thus contaminating it with germs, mold, bacteria, sudden loud noise of heavy load falling from higher floor & other invisible undesirables.

The convenience of having the chute in your apartment can be negated by that.

Do you prefer to have the rubbish chute in or outside your apartment?
