Sentosa Perdana residents see no end to litterbugs in their community (Poll Inside)

KLANG: Residents of Taman Sentosa Perdana have to contend with rubbish thrown out of windows and balconies of apartments located behind their double-storey terrace homes.

Taman Sentosa Perdana residents’ association president S. Nyneswaran said these litter end up in the backyard and back lane of some 38 houses located behind the apartments.

"Not being able to tolerate it any longer, we went and lodged a complaint with our assemblyman Gunaraj George sometime in September last year.

"He then went to every unit of the shop apartments with Klang Municipal Council (MPK) officers, who issued them (the residents) notices," said Nyneswaran.

Instead of ceasing their act, the shop apartment residents started throwing out larger objects, including bottles.

Nyneswaran reckoned it was an act of revenge following the notices issued by the MPK.

"We went to MPK again and council officers went to the shop apartment again to issue a warning to the residents who are mostly foreigners," he added.

According to Nyneswaran, the shop apartment residents had stopped throwing bottles after that, but were still dumping kitchen waste indiscriminately.

Meanwhile, Bandar Botanic Residents Association deputy president Fong Tang Chong said an apartment block adjacent to his housing estate was causing an eyesore.

"We work very hard in keeping our housing estate clean and beautiful, but the residents of the nearby Palma Apartment are doing a disservice to the neighbourhood," said Fong, who added that residents in the apartment were mostly Malaysians.

Most of the garbage thrown does not hit the ground, but gets lodged on the awnings of the apartment units instead, causing an eyesore to the entire neighbourhood.
