SHAH Alam City Council (MBSA) is providing roll-on roll-off (Roro) bins for residents who are spring-cleaning their homes and want to get rid of bulk waste ahead of the Chinese New Year festival.
“A total of 275 three-tonne Roro bins will be placed, in stages from now until Feb 14, at selected locations in Sections 1 to 36 and Sections U1 to U20 in Shah Alam, ” said MBSA Corporate and Public Relations Division head Shahrin Ahmad in a statement.
“This service is aimed at providing residents the convenience of disposing bulk waste and selected recyclable materials after their spring clean.
“It is also to educate Shah Alam folk about proper bulk waste management.”
MBSA has an assigned schedule for the bin placements.
The Roro bins will be left at a predetermined location for seven days for residents to dispose of their bulk waste but will be removed earlier if they are full.
According to MBSA, the Roro bins are for:
> Bulk waste: table, chair, sofa, cupboard, mattress, bed and other furniture;
> Metal-based items: bicycle, baby cradle, barbecue equipment and metal drum;
> Glass-based items: aquarium, vase, decorative lamp and chandelier (to be properly wrapped before disposal so that they do not break easily and injure the waste disposal workers); and
> Electrical or electronic items: fridge, radio, television, battery charger and mobile phone.
“We hope residents will cooperate by placing their bulk rubbish in the provided bins to facilitate the waste collection and ensure the surrounding area is clean, ” said Shahrin.
