SUBANG Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) will provide bulk waste collection services for those living in landed properties.
It was announced at the council’s monthly fullboard meeting yesterday, chaired by councillor Jaberi Ami that the public can take up the service at a minimum charge of RM30, RM50 (one-third lorry load), RM100 (half a lorry load) or RM150 (full load) .
MPSJ Corporate and Strategic Management Department deputy director Azfarizal Abdul Rashid said prior to this, residents relied on waste collection contractors to collect bulk waste.
The prices, he said varied according to the contractors.
Councillors also discussed about foreigners working illegally as hawkers and objected to them operating stalls.
Councillor Pooi Weng Keong suggested having temporary business licences for refugees, who worked at hawker stalls.
“Refugees are unable to make a living for themselves, and I have seen mothers with their young children begging on the streets.
“Maybe we can offer a temporary licence for them to be hawkers,” he said.
It was also announced that a dialogue session would be held on May 3 at The One Academy in Bandar Sunway for the backlane beautification and mural painting programme in Sunway Metro at Jalan PJS 11/28A and Jalan PJS 11/28B.
This will be modelled after the Jalan Kenari Commercial Centre revitalisation project in Puchong.
There will also be a health carnival on May 13 at the FAMA pasar tani site along Jalan Putra Mahkota 7/6A, Pusat Bandar Putra Point in Putra Heights.
The public can take part in the 4.5km walk or cycling activity. For details or to register, visit www.mpsj.gov.my
