Residents helping to remove illegal stickers from telephone booths in Kampung Baru Sungai Way, Petaling Jaya.
RESIDENTS will be given monetary reward for removing illegal stickers, banners and bunting in Kampung Tunku, Petaling Jaya.
Kampung Tunku assemblyman Lau Weng San said 50sen would be given for each sticker or small bunting removed, and RM2 for banners.
These include all forms of illegal advertising without a certified sticker from the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ), said Lau.
“This is only open to residents from the Kampung Tunku constituency. They will have to take these ads down and bring them to my office as proof,” he said.
The incentive programme was previously carried out three years ago and helped reduce the problem significantly, he added.
Lau also said irresponsible people had been throwing rubbish by the roadside at night in Kampung Baru Sungai Way.
“Some come in cars and just throw them out of the window.
“We will offer a RM100 reward to residents who manage to snap a picture identifying the offender’s vehicle number plate,” he said.
The photographs can be e-mailed to email@example.com
Lau said public cooperation was necessary as enforcement officers could not be there 24 hours a day.
“We hope that by offering an incentive, we can encourage more residents to do their part to make this neighbourhood better,” he said.
He was speaking at a gotong-royong in Kampung Baru Sungai Way, themed “Inilah Tempatku” (This Is My Place), with over 300 volunteers.
It was organised by the Seri Setia New Village Development and Security Committee (JKKK) together with MBPJ, Starbucks, Western Digital and Globetronics.
The group conducted a major clean-up near the market and its surrounding areas, including removing illegal ads, repainting lines and markers on the road, cleaning the drains and clearing away rubbish.
This was the 34th community event in the area to be organised since 2008.
“We want to foster closer ties between the residents here as well as a sense of belonging, and to empower them to care for the environment,” said Lau, adding that MBPJ planned to expand the programme to the SS1 and SS3 neighbourhoods.
