‘Keep recycling during full MCO’

Norlisam says SWM hopes to garner more users for its KitaRecycle app.

THE public has been urged not to give up recycling during the current lockdown.SWM Environment Sdn Bhd corporate general manager Mohd Norlisam Mohd Nordin called on more people to use its KitaRecycle app.

“We want more participation in our KitaRecycle programme, especially through the app.

“The programme allows people to exchange items they want recycled for points, which can later be redeemed for cash, ” he said when contacted.

He added that there were 2, 500 registered users for the app since it was first introduced in 2019.

SMW Environment is hoping this number can increase by 1, 500 each year.

“The recycled items can be collected from house to house.

“Everyone is also encouraged to send these items to our mobile or static collection centres, ” said Norlisam.

The static centres are located in Bandar Dato Onn in Johor Baru and Taman Pura Kencana, Batu Pahat.

For mobile collection, the public can visit its website to find out the scheduled date, time and location.

Norlisam said SWM hoped to work with associations, government departments and other groups to provide more of such centres.

He also called on the people to dispose of personal protective equipment, especially face masks, properly.

“We want everyone to play their role in helping the country curb Covid-19 infections, ” he stressed.

Meanwhile, Solid Waste Management and Public Cleansing Corporation Sdn Bhd (SWCorp) Johor director Cairul Hisham Jalaluddin said the company would continue to monitor and conduct enforcement activities.

“We are listed as an essential services company, so our work will continue as usual during this period, ” he said.
