The Kampung Tunku assemblyman’s service centre, What A Waste Food Rescue organisation and Sea Park Shell petrol station have organised a joint initiative to collect and repurpose used food containers.
The repurposing efforts by What A Waste, an organisation that aims to reduce wastage of excess food, utilises the used containers to distribute leftover food that they collect to the needy, especially families from the B40 group.
Shell petrol station in Sea Park was selected as the collection centre for the used food containers as it is strategically located in the
middle of Sea Park commercial area and a central point for surrounding areas such as Section 20, Section 21, Section 22 and SS2.
Those who wish to contribute to the cause only need to put their used food containers into the designated cabinet at the petrol station.
What A Waste will then come and collect the food containers every month or at any time when the cabinet is full.
The Kampung Tunku assemblyman’s service centre hopes the initiative will help What A Waste in reducing food wastage and disposal of plastic food containers for the sustainability of the environment.The centre also hopes for a positive response and cooperation from residents and local businesses towards the cause and urges the public not to misuse the cabinets meant for used plastic containers and to refrain from throwing rubbish there.
