Waste management company unveils latest assets, renews contract with MPK for seven years, effective Oct 1
KDEB Waste Management (KDEB) has unveiled its new corporate image in line with Selangor’s trajectory.
As the state’s agency in charge of collecting domestic waste since 2016, the company aims to continue being proactive in the waste management industry and set new standards for responsible environment stewardship.
KDEB managing director Datuk Ramli Mohd Tahir said with the new corporate image, KDEB was ready to explore new business and technology segments, in line with the First Selangor Plan (RS-1).
“This includes the establishment of a new and sophisticated waste management system that adopts new technologies such as the ‘waste to energy’ concept.
“I hope the new corporate image will grant the company relevance and sustainability to continue meeting the aspirations of the nearly seven million Selangor residents,” he said when unveiling the company’s new colours and fleet of new compactor lorries.
The new assets were launched in conjunction with the renewal of the solid waste management contract with Klang Municipal Council (MPK) for seven years, effective Oct 1.
KDEB is introducing 75 new compactor lorries with a weight capacity of 18 tonnes, which will be used in all 75 zones of the Klang district.
The new compactor lorries are in red and yellow (previously in blue and white), in line with the state’s colours, RS-1, and the slogan #KitaSelangor.
Ramli said the larger compactors are expected to be introduced to other localities next year.
Also at the launch were Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari and MPK president Noraini Roslan.
Amirudin said the state government’s appointment of KDEB as the project management company was a bold decision as it has successfully established a systematic waste management network in Selangor.
“The new corporate image symbolises Selangor’s ambition to have a more efficient waste management system, in line with the aspirations of the RS-1,” he said.
In addition to “advanced technologies and glamorous skyscrapers”, solid waste management services were part of the criteria for Selangor to become a world-class state.
Noraini highlighted the need for continuous collaboration between MPK and KDEB for a better solid waste management network in Klang.
“The relationship between MPK and KDEB has gone through a lot of ups and downs.
“However, it has continuously improved to fulfil our promise for a better solid waste management system,” she added.
