Eateries dump food waste into rivers, polluting eight rivers in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor

Breaking all the rules: The health department prohibits direct discharge of water from pipes into drains as well as washing plates or preparing food in back lanes. Only restaurants with fat, oil and grease (FOG) traps will be issued licences.

Here’s why a seniors’ community network is such a great idea

For close to 40 years, Ben Ong lived in his suburban home in Damansara Utama, Petaling Jaya without interacting much with his neighbours. They share a smile or a quick word from time to time, but never a conversation.
But when his wife suffered a stroke last year, Ong reached out to his neighbours for help. His children were living far away and Ong found himself at a loss.

Central Zone helps to reduce waste sent to landfills

16 August 2016

Today marks the start of the Single Stream Waste Management programme to all the roads in the SS20 Central Zone. Thank you for joining in the battle in reducing the growing garbage heaps being sent to the landfills. 

We have been informed by Pn Marini of MBPJ that the response in the Central Zone is pretty good. Thumbs up to all who are participating in this programme organized by MBPJ. The little effort that all of us contribute will make a positive impact to the environment.

Thank you to Mr Lee Lih Shyan (Pengarah, Jab Pengurusan Sisa Pepejal & Pembersihan Awam, MBPJ), Pn Marini Mohammad (Jab Pengurusan Sisa Pepejal & Pembersihan Awam, MBPJ) & Pn Eileen Thong (KRT SS20 Chairman) for all the help and support in getting the programme started in the Central Zone.
