Bulk waste collection in KL, Putrajaya to be halted from Feb 6-11 during CNY, says SWCorp


KUALA LUMPUR: Due to the coming Chinese New Year (CNY) festival, all bulk waste in Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya will be collected on or before Feb 5.

Federal Territory Solid Waste and Public Cleansing Management Corporation (SWCorp) said this is due to the “spring cleaning” by the Chinese community for CNY on Feb 10, where old furniture and household fittings will be discarded and replaced with new ones.

"This will lead to an increase in waste and bigger piles of bulk waste, especially at residential areas.

"As such, SWCorp is requesting all residents in Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya to remove their bulk waste according to the schedule and leave it beside the green waste bin in front of their houses," said the Corporation in a statement on Friday (Jan 19).

SWCorp said for those living in high rise buildings, the waste must be placed at the waste house.

"Bulk waste collection will be halted from Feb 6 to 11 to mark CNY," it added.

"The present waste collection is once a week and the residents are advised to follow the Feb 5 schedule and not throw bulk waste on roadside, open space and hidden places.

"For any late collection, complaints can be forwarded to hotline 1800 88 7472, 03-22459292, callcentre@swcorp.my or through the complaints system at https://swcorp.spab.gov.my.
