Citizens urged to remain calm as MPSJ is hard at work

SUBANG JAYA, JAN 7: Locals are urged to remain calm and allow the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) to solve the domestic waste collection issue. Penduduk setempat diharap bersabar dan memberi peluang kepada Majlis Perbandaran Subang Jaya (MPSJ) menyelesaikan isu kutipan sampah domestik.
Subang Jaya Assemblyman Hannah Yeoh said she has received various complaints about uncollected rubbish piling up since a week ago.
She said the complaints have been forwarded to MPSJ and it is in the process of improving the quality of service.
“Most contractors are new and unfamiliar with the new areas, making the service slow, and this is compounded by the recent new year holiday, all of which contributed to the large amount of rubbish.
“MPSJ itself has implemented its aid plan to contractors, in fact, the Yang Di Pertua and his deputy also got involved themselves to ensure this issue is resolved.
“We hope that residents will be patient as I am sure that it will be settled soon,” she said.
Beginning this year, MPSJ appointed new contractors after the existing ones ended their services on December 31.
Previously, Local Government, New Village Development and Illegal Factory Legalisation Exco Ean Yong Hian did not deny the possibility that former contractors conducted sabotage after failing to have their contracts renewed.
MPSJ Solid Waste Management Department Director Dr Roslan Mohamed Hussein said that his department would reduce service payments to contractors in affected areas.
