Council’s efforts to spruce up Kepong’s illegal dumping spot in vain

MPS contractors arriving to clear the rubbish dumped along Jalan Daya 6 after the site was cleared and beautified.

BARELY a week after a rubbish dumping spot in Taman Daya, Kepong was cleared up, Selayang Municipal Council (MPS) discovered that it had reverted to its previous condition with bulk and industrial wastes thrown there.

In late September, MPS and KDEB Waste Management Sdn Bhd carried out a rubbish hotspot beautification programme by cleaning up the site at the corner of Jalan Daya Utama and Jalan Daya 6.

“The two government agencies used discarded tyres and plants to prevent uncontrolled rubbish dumping,” said MPS corporate communications director Mohamad Zin Masoad in a statement.

“However, these efforts were in vain due to the acts of irresponsible individuals who continued to dump rubbish there.

“We regret the actions of such individuals who do not have civic awareness and do not appreciate MPS’ initiative to create a clean and beautiful environment,” he added.

To ensure the site remained clean, MPS made the effort to clear it in the first week of October.

“We hope the incident won’t happen again.

“We welcome the public to be our eyes and ears and report any dumping of rubbish in public areas,” said Mohamad Zin.
