Raising Awareness of Zika / Dengue

26 Sept 2016

RA SS20 Central Environment Committee organized a walk to cover all the roads in the Central Zone to raise awareness of the threat of the Aedes mosquitoes to the residents and also to identify potential mosquito breeding grounds.

We were happy to note that MBPJ contract workers have done a very good job in keeping Central Zone clean and neat.

All of us can help to prevent the breeding of the Aedes mosquito by frequently checking and removing stagnant water in our premises.

We thank: 
1) Cik Jamaliah Jamaluddin (MBPJ Councillor for Zone 9) and her assistant, Mr Daniel Low for joining us in the walk, 
2) YB Yeo Bee Yin's office for the provision of abate and Zika/Dengue stickers
3) MBPJ Health and Environment Department for their provision of dengue leaflets
4) MBPJ Solid Waste Management & Public Health Cleaning Department for their constant support to ensure a clean and neat environment in the Central Zone.

Joint effort: The SS20 neighbourhood is among the most successful participants of the MBPJ waste separation pilot project. The neighbourhood started with 20 houses at the start of the project in April and has extended to 200 houses in August. — Sia Hong Kiau/The Star  

Experts believe that residents in cities like Petaling Jaya are well aware of the need to separate their waste, but to make it a sustainable practice, there are other factors that need to be in place.
Good leadership at neighbourhood level, recognition and consistent separated waste collection mechanism are among them. Single stream waste separation is another pull factor.
Waste management experts said the authorities should also review the effectiveness of recycling bins placed in neighbourhoods.   READ MORE ......
