SHAH ALAM, June 5 — KDEB Waste Management (KDEBWM) Sdn Bhd has urged residents to park their vehicles in a proper and orderly manner to facilitate the collection of domestic and bulk wastes in residential areas in the state.
Its managing director Ramli Mohd Tahir said the increase of vehicles parked in residential areas following the implementation of the full movement control order (FMCO) would sometimes block the route used by its compactor and arm roll trucks.
“In the four days after the government enforced the FMCO, we found out that the number of vehicles has increased significantly as most of the workers are working from home.
“Therefore, we hope all can give their cooperation so that KDEBWM trucks drivers can enter especially into narrow street areas such as flats, apartments and stratified housing,” he said when contacted.
Meanwhile, he expects daily waste generation from residential areas in the state to increase compared to business premises areas during this two-week period.
“Since people are not allowed to eat at the restaurants, so the opportunity to be at home is used to cook and order food online thus generating a lot of waste, especially on weekends.
“For that, we urge the community to manage their waste well and put it in the rubbish bin outside the house in the early morning. God willing, we will try to do our job well,” he said.
