SHAH ALAM: The Shah Alam City Council (SACC) plans to raise the compound fine for indiscriminate rubbish dumping to RM5,000 to put a check on such activities. 

Its mayor Ramli Mahmud said this was because ratepayers were not deterred by the current compound fine of RM1,000. 

He said this month alone, the council's special squad mobilised to overcome the problem had arrested 10 individuals and building contractors, and they would be brought to court soon, he said. 

He said several locations in Bukit Raja and Subang, among others had been identified as illegal rubbish dumpsites. 

To deal with the problem, the special squad would continue to monitor and inspect business premises, especially eateries and barbershops to ensure their cleanliness and safety, Ramli said. 

He also called on the public to inform the council via its 24-hour hotline at 03-55105811 if they see people dumping rubbish indiscriminately. – Bernama
