KDEBWM considers rewarding those who recycle

By Sheeda Fathil

SHAH ALAM, June 20 — KDEB Waste Management Sdn Bhd (KDEBWM) is considering the introduction of a reward system at the newly launched recycling centre at the Kampung Baru Hicom People’s Housing Project (PPR) here. 

Its managing director Dato’ Ramli Mohd Tahir said the initiative is meant to encourage the culture of recycling among residents in the area. 

He said KDEBWM is currently holding discussions with the state government and the Perumahan dan Hartanah Selangor Sdn Bhd on possibly installing a QR code scanning system at the location for this purpose. 

“For the moment, we want to monitor the situation at this recycling centre for three or four months. Following that, we will look at improving it by, among other things, introducing rewards as motivation to the residents. 

“We will put up a QR code, so when an individual recycles an item here, incentives will be given.” 

“If the response is encouraging, we plan to expand the concept to at least two or three more locations this year,” he said at a press conference after the launching of the Kampung Baru Hicom PPR recycling centre yesterday. 

State executive councillor for housing and urban wellbeing Rodziah Ismail was present to officiate the ceremony. 

Earlier, KDEBWM had announced that RM20,000 was allocated to develop the Kampung Baru Hicom PPR recycling centre, which has been in operation since April 1.
