Floods: Disruption in waste collection in parts of Selangor

KDEB Waste Management (KDEBWM) says there will be some disruption in its solid waste collection services in several areas affected by the floods, particularly Klang, Shah Alam, Kajang, Ampang Jaya and Kuala Langat.

“There will be some delay and difficulty in both domestic and bulk waste collection services, as some areas remain inaccessible while some of our trucks were damaged by the floods,” KDEBWM managing director Ramli Mohd Tahir said in a statement.

“Residents are advised to dispose of their domestic waste in rubbish bins or refuse chambers, or bulk waste in front of their homes or designated roll-on, roll-off (Roro) bins.

“Collection services will be done gradually and may take a longer time than usual to be cleared,” he said, adding that KDEBWM is committed to assisting the Selangor government and residents with flood recovery works.

Pos Malaysia announced on its social media platform that some of its services could be affected, while post offices were temporarily closed.

“Major floods caused by heavy rain may affect counter, delivery and pick-up services in impacted areas, including closures of affected Pos Malaysia outlets.

“Inaccessible routes due to the flood have also affected our linehaul connectivity. Services will resume once situation permits and routes are open,” said Pos Malaysia in its post, adding that it did not have an exact list of areas affected by the floods at press time.
