PUTRAJAYA: Selangor’s waste management system to undergo a due diligence period of inspection ahead of its plan to adopt the Solid Waste and Public Cleansing Management Act (Act 672), says Nga Kor Ming.

The Housing and Local Government Minister said that all of Selangor’s assets related to public waste were undergoing a thorough inspection by the National Solid Waste Management Department.

“I have instructed the department’s director to do due diligence and joint inspection on the number of assets as well as how to improve the quality of public cleansing in Selangor.

“This inspection is expected to be completed before July this year, after which we plan to further discuss with the Penang government to also adopt the act,” he said.

Previously on March 10, Nga announced that Selangor had agreed in principle to adopt Act 672 after Selangor Ruler Sultan Sharafudin Idris Shah granted him an audience to which the latter consented to adopting the Act.

The Act, which is better known as Act 672, makes it compulsory for solid waste to be separated into recyclables and non-recyclables.

It is currently only applied to the states of Pahang, Johor, Melaka, Negri Sembilan, Perlis, Kedah, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya.
