KLANG Municipal Council (MPK) has stepped up efforts to clean up the royal town’s dirty image in recent weeks.

Checks by StarMetro revealed that most parts of the town were clean except for some isolated spots.

MPK public service department director Dawari Daud said improving the cleanliness level of Klang was his priority, in line with the directive of council president Datuk Mohd Yazid Bidin.

Dawari said Mohd Yazid was serious about making Klang one of the cleanest towns in the country like Malacca.

He said the council worked closely with the cleaning contractors and KDEB Waste Management Sdn Bhd in its efforts to achieve the clean town objective.

“We also have our own team for urban cleaning and the team is doing a good job of maintaining the town’s cleanliness,” he said during a walkabout to inspect several areas in Klang.

Dawari said the cleanliness of Klang had improved as the number of spots with piles of garbage had reduced.

He said this was also because of the changes in the garbage collection schedule and urban cleaning services.

“Waste collection at commercial areas is being done during the wee hours of the morning till 7am daily.

“We do not want the schedule to overlap with business operating hours,” he said.

He urged business operators and residents in commercial areas to dispose of their unwanted items at designated garbage collection spots during the night for collection in the morning.

However, he added, some threw rubbish at the collection spots after 7am and as the rubbish continued to pile up during the day, the piles turned into eyesores.

At 7am, Dawari said, council workers would be sweeping the roads.

He added that the cleanliness of the roads, including back lanes and dividers, had improved.

“We have cleared sand and dirt from the road shoulders. The drains have been cleaned too.

“However, there is still a lot of room for improvement, especially in certain parts of the town including remote areas such as Kapar and Meru,” he said, adding that the council would expand its scope to the rest of the areas in stages.

While the council was bent on taking Klang to another level, Dawari said the public also had a role to play in keeping the town clean.

At the moment, he said, the council was focused on providing efficient cleaning service to the residents and checking on illegal dumpsites.

“We will step up enforcement on litterbugs as we go forward,” he said.

On April 7, StarMetro reported that Klang had generally become a cleaner town over the past few months with increased efforts by the local authority to keep to a cleaning schedule and impose fines on offenders.

However, MPK’s efforts were inadequate because Klang folk were not doing their part.

In fact, they were undoing the council’s work.

Heaps of domestic rubbish, construction debris and bulk waste reappear at the same spot after the council’s contractors had cleaned the area.
