WHILE all eyes will be on the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition (LIMA 2013), an environmental company is set to do the dirty work of cleaning up and managing the solid waste during the expo.
Environment Idaman Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Mohd Saiful Anuar Zainul said the waste was expected to be 150% more in the LIMA vicinity, compared to about 80 tonnes on normal days.
“We have 150 personnel ready
to handle the expected increase. We also have state-of-the-art machineries to handle the situation,” he said.
The machines include eight compressors, five arm rolls, one mini arm roll and a vacall machine.
“With more than 100,000 people from all over the world coming for LIMA, we are prepared to facilitate and speed up garbage collection,’’ he said.
The public can call their toll-free line at 1-800-88-7472 or their office
at 04-95668913 for uncollected garbage or cleanliness issues during the LIMA period.
The five-day exhibition, which begins today, is expected to attract more than 100,000 visitors to the island.
Among the Malaysian frigates on display include the KD Kelantan, KDB Darulssalam, KDB Jebat, while the
foreign frigates are the KRI Beladau from Indonesia, BNS Dhaleshwari from Bangladesh and HTMS Phuket from Thailand.
The Russian destroyers Marshall Shaposhenkov and The Altay are also docking at Porto Malai.
