MELAKA: Sanitary workers from Southern Waste Environment (SWM Environment) will continue their tasks of bulk garbage collection and public cleaning operations on the first and second day of the Lunar New Year.
SWM Environment's general manager for corporate affairs Mohd Norlisam Mohd Nordin (pic) said over 1,200 workers and 250 vehicles would be operating on both days at all the three districts in the state.
The vehicles, he noted, comprised compactor trucks as well as lorries to collect bulk and recycling waste.
"We have strategies for our manpower and logistics, especially to attend to the needs of revellers to avoid any pile-up of garbage and solid waste," he said on Saturday (Jan 29).
Norlisam said those celebrating Chinese New Year could also refer to the waste management schedule at signboards erected at all housing estates or get alerts via WhatsApp to 012-618 0082.
He also urged households to practice the 3R (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) approach during the festive season.
