CCTV-captured photos of bulk waste cleaning by KDEBWM workers in Klang.
CCTV-captured photos of bulk waste cleaning by KDEBWM workers in Klang

ONE week after KDEB Waste Management (KDEBWM) Sdn Bhd took over public cleaning in 20 areas in Klang on March 1, the firm is grappling to get the job done.

Its general manager Ramli Mohd Tahir said collection of bulk waste and sweeping up litter in the town areas were the toughest tasks.

“Our strategies for public cleaning have been put in place for 20 areas under the first phase.

“But, I have to admit, collection of bulk waste is most difficult and it peeves me, as people keep dumping waste at road shoulders and isolated areas,” he said.

Ramli added that his workers had removed old broken furniture and garden waste according to schedule but within hours, more bulk waste appeared at the same spot again.

“I cannot stretch the workforce. We have limited workers with about 15 for each area,” he said, adding that they need additional workers with increased work hours to overcome the problem.

“But, we are unable to do it because of the limited budget,” he added.

Under the first phase, the company was responsible for cleaning and collecting rubbish discarded at night, clean wet markets, remove garden refuse and bulk waste left along roadsides, de-silt drains and cut grass along public roads.

Ramli said bulk waste had not been collected for two to four weeks and the grass was not cut for a few months at Bandar Baru Klang, BBK Heights and Berkerly Gardens.

“In areas around Meru, the drains had been neglected and bulk waste in 20 areas had not been collected,” he said.

“KDEBWM wants to achieve a high level of cleanliness for Klang and we hope the Klang Municipal Council (MPK) can review the fee to allow us to engage more workers for an effective public cleaning job,” added Ramli.

MPK president Datuk Mohamad Yasid Bidin said the waste management company just took over the public cleaning works for 20 areas.

“The fees for this is coming from taxpayers’ pockets and the council has to answer to the people. We cannot just dish out money.

“Work on keeping the streets clean has to go on as agreed with the firm,” he said.

The council pays an estimated RM400,000 a month to KDEBWM for the 20 areas.

Phase One of the takeover is from March 1 to May 31. The next phase, which will see 39 areas come under KDEBWM, begins on June 30.

By July 2018, KDEBWM, a business subsidiary of the state government, will take over a total of 111 areas in the Klang district.
