REALISING the poor state of the royal town’s cleanliness, Klang Municipal Council (MPK) president Datuk Mohd Yazid Bidin has vowed to take proactive measures to restore the image of the town.

Mohd Yazid, who was only appointed as the council president in November last year, acknowledged that the cleanliness of the municipality was far below his expectations.

He said he had been making many visits around the municipality since his appointment to assess its cleanliness level.

“I went around streets, parks, towns and residential areas.

“I admit that we have not done enough to improve the situation and I am here to bring about change,” he told StarMetro.

Yazid said he was inspired by the words of the Sultan of Selangor Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, who told him that he was duty-bound to maintain the town’s cleanliness at all times, and he would personally look into the matter immediately.

He said he would review the contractor management schedule and the amount paid to each contractor assigned to carry out the cleaning and collection service.

“If there is a problem with our system, I will rectify it and if the contractors are not doing their job, we change them,” he said.

For a start, Yazid said, he would want to review the mode of payment, from based on trips per month to based on days per month.

He said he felt there was a weakness in the policy to pay contractors based on a certain number of trips per month as the contractors were not interested to make more than the required trips stipulated in their contracts.

“I think we need to offer them contracts on a daily basis, which means they will have to collect all the garbage from the designated areas daily.

“Currently, the garbage trucks do not make additional trips to a particular area to clear the remaining garbage because they were only required to make a set number of trips to the area on a monthly basis,” he said, adding that it would require the council to spend more money on waste management.

Under the proposed system, Yazid said, contractors would be required to clear garbage on a daily basis and they would be closely monitored by the officers from the council.

Once implemented, he said, Klang would be cleaner and there would not be piles of uncollected garbage lining the streets anymore.

“I know how the public feels about the present situation and I am determined to transform Klang into one of the cleanest places in the country,” he said.
