Rubbish at illegal dumpsite to be cleared soon, says SWCorp


ILLEGALLY dumped rubbish at the Jinjang Selatan Tambahan squatter area in Kepong, Kuala Lumpur, will be cleared by Solid Waste Management and Public Cleansing Corporation of Federal Territory (SWCorp) soon.

The company, in a media statement, said that although the squatter area was not under the service of SWCorp, it would clear the area to comply with certain procedures and approvals.

“SWCorp enforcement officers visited the area on July 5 and found the location filled with illegally dumped rubbish consisting of construction debris and domestic waste.

“The squatters may have thrown the domestic waste there to avoid going to the nearest rubbish bin which is 50m away.

“The drains at Jalan 11/32 in Taman Jinjang Baru have been cleaned on July 4 as per schedule.”

SWCorp was responding to a StarMetro report titled “Re-house remaining Jinjang Selatan Tambahan squatters, says activist” on July 5.

Community activist Yee Poh Ping had highlighted the squatters’ deteriorating living conditions, including uncollected rubbish, overgrown grass and poorly-maintained drainage.

The public can lodge complaints to SWCorp via swcorp.spab.gov.my, call 1800-88-7472 or email callcentre@swcorp.my
