Naturally bring the tray to the cleaner. PLUS a thank you to the cleaner ah pek/ah mm
Leave it on the table. I'm not paying $3 for my wantan mee for self-service
Eat as messy as possible. Customer is king and its the duty of the cleaner to clean
Only pass it to the cleaner if he happens to go by. If not, heck care.

Personally, I don't bring trays to the tray stations in food courts unless theres a specific sign that says so. If you clear then the cleaners pushing the trolleys will have nothing to do. However, I always neaten up the bowls, plates etc onto tray and clear up spills to make the job easier. That said, I usually eat at food courts at non-peak hours and the cleaners are quite overzelous during these times when theres not much people. So as soon as I put down my chopsticks, they seem ready to pull the tray from under your nose.
In fast food restraunts, you are actually supposed to trash the garbage (thats why all disposable) and return the tray. The problem is when ppl being food court mentality to fast food restraunts and canteens.

Clearing your own tray in a food court should be a given.

but one thing never fail amaze me. It's very hard for the people here to say HI.
I always get strange stare when I say Hi to any person I meet during my walk from home to MRT. Cleaner, uncles, aunties, etc I just greet "Hi, Good Morning", and many of them rudely just stared at me like i was an alien. Even if we're sharing the same lift.
Some cleaners don't like us to pass the tray to them.. they want job security...
I never give my trays to them unless they happen to walk by. I say thank you if I'm feeling good, otherwise it isn't a habit to do it in a coffeeshop/foodcourt setting. As for eating messily, I don't do it because it's uncouth, even in a coffeeshop/foodcourt setting.
Yes. Education come from home. Just look at yourself when you are at home. Is your table messy after your meal?
Remember, it is your own house!
It is a habit! I change mine and it can be done!
YOU CAN KEEP THE TABLE CLEAN! YOU ARE HELPING THE CLEANER TO CLEAR THE TABLE FASTER AND MORE CAN ENJOY THE FOOD AND OF COURSE THE CLEANER ENVIROMENT!!!
WHY DON'T WE GIVE IT A TRY?
yAPPY & HAPPY
Tell me abt uncouth behaviour again.
It is part of our culture that we dont clear our trays so why do the extraordinary by clearing your trays? I am not clearing my trays not cos I want to act like a king but look at who are clearing your trays,

These true blood SINGAPOREANS are working as our govt feels more welfare will erode their work ethics so they work..... they do the only job that employers can give them due to their condition. If all of us decide to be civil and clear the trays then won't they be fired? As now you dont need to employ them to do this job. Cost saving and more profits to the boss, no more job for these people who really need it. So dont clear your trays.... unless you want to take away the job from our fellow SINGAPOREAN.
