Selayang Municipal Council workers carrying out massive clean up operation at a river near Batu Cave temple after Thaipusam.

Non-governmental organisations (NGOs) distributing free food during Thaipusam at Batu Cave would no longer be allowed to use polystyrene and plastic containers from next year.

Selayang Municipal Council (MPS) imposed the ban after they found the collection of the Thaipusam garbage at the venue had gone up to 400 tonnes, compared with 320 tonnes last year.
