BUSINESSES located in nine areas in Klang must have 240-litre rubbish bins in place from Oct 1 under a pilot programme by Klang Municipal Council (MPK).

Existing as well as new business licence holders are required to comply with the ruling at two locations in Meru, and one each in Port Klang, Pandamaran, Taman Sentosa, Bukit Tinggi, Bukit Raja, Aman Perdana and Kapar.

After the council’s full board meeting, MPK president Dr Ahmad Fadzli Ahmad Tajuddin said the requirement would be imposed on all commercial areas starting Jan 1,2021.“This is part of the council’s efforts to improve waste management, ” he said.

He added that changes had been made to the rubbish collection schedule as well under the programme. Fadzli also announced that MPK was offering a flat rate of RM15 on outstanding parking compounds from Sept 15 to 30 in conjunction with Malaysia Day.

He urged the public to take advantage of an additional RM5 discount on each compound when payment was made online via Jompay, Smart Parking MPKlang, iKiosk machines at MPK and iPay (FPX).

Alternatively, payment can be made at MPK headquarters and its branches as well as drive-through counters.

The discount does not apply to offences such as misuse of reserved and disabled parking spots, as well as obstructing parking bays.

On another matter, MPK deputy president Elya Marini Darmin said the council had received 41 tip-offs from the public via its website on foreign workers doing business illegally.

“They have provided us with detailed information which will help us during the enforcement process.”

She said joint operations would be carried out in due course based on the information received.
