Bird droppings causing a stench


Swiflets nesting in the trees along Jalan Wong Nai Siong.

SIBU: Sibu Municipal Council has been told to trim trees along Jalan Wong Nai Siong to prevents swiftlets from nesting there.

Sarawak Central Region Hotels Association chairman Johnny Wong said the bird droppings were causing environmental and health hazards.

“In early March, before the movement control order (MCO) was enforced, I highlighted the problem to the council.

“A councillor said he would look into the problem but until now nothing has been done,” he said

Wong said taxi drivers stationed here and some traders had also complained about the droppings.

“They said the foul smell was too much to bear.”

He hoped the council would take action soon, adding that a similar problem was present in front of the Sibu Heritage Centre where there were a lot of trees. — By ANDY CHUA
