Food packaging and leftovers considered waste must be tied in a bag and placed into rubbish bins with lids, advises the Klang Municipal Council (MPK).

Its secretary Elya Marini Darmin, who carried out checks under MPK’s J-Force 3.0 operation in Bandar Bukit Tinggi, advised eatery managers to properly dispose of their waste.

“Spot checks at the back lanes of Lorong Batu Nilam 4B in Bandar Bukit Tinggi found that packaging material and food leftovers were not disposed of properly.

“Businesses are legally bound to dispose of waste from their premises properly as this is a condition when operating licences are issued to them,” she added.

Elya Marini said MPK had checked 28 business premises during the J-Force 3.0 operation.

“We found four premises had not renewed their licences.

“We also issued 18 compounds for various offences, including not maintaining cleanliness, not having a licence to advertise, causing obstruction on the five-foot way, not placing rubbish bins in back lanes and not wearing apron, which is compulsory for food handlers,” she added.
