How do we dispose of used cooking oil?

29 Aug 2017


One litre of used oil can contaminate one million litres of water!

Instead of pouring your used cooking oil down the drain or throwing it into the garbage bin, why not put it to better use by recycling it into biodiesel. 

You can either pass your used cooking oil to the MBPJ recycling truck that comes every Tuesday or pour your used cooking oil into the blue collection bin placed at the guardhouse at Jalan SS20/12.
When the bin is full, MBPJ will take it away and replace it with another bin.

Operation River Care


RA SS20 Central learns how to contribute to river care.

River care is important because 90% of the water supply comes from rivers, And what goes into the drains eventually will flow into the rivers too. So it is crucial we do not contaminate the water in our drains and in the rivers because we will end up drinking this water! 

Contaminated water will affect the vegetables we plant and the water we drink and this will be hazardous to our health.
Please recycle your used cooking oil and all other recyclable items with MBPJ every Tuesday. 

A total of 20 members from the SS20, Seksyen 14, TTDI, Perumahan Awam Bukit Kiara and Block 1 Desa Mentari communities participated in the half-day training session. Participants learned about pollution mapping and river water quality monitoring. They were also taken on a community garden visit, taught how to recycle cooking oil and experienced a river address-finding activity. READ MORE ......

We need to use electricity and water more responsibly

Since the setting up of the Sustainable Energy Development Authority (Seda) and the introduction of the Feed-in Tariff (FiT) mechanism in 2012, solar projects have sprung up across the country 
Will increasing water and electricity rates help reduce consumption and wastage? Is solar energy the next big “alternative” wave? How do we keep our rivers clean?
All these issues were addressed in a recent interview with Energy, Green Technology and Water Ministry’s (KeTTHA) secretary general Datuk Seri Ir Dr Zaini Ujang.
“One of the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals is responsible consumption. This is very important, otherwise our environment and consumption won’t be sustainable,” said Zaini.  READ MORE ......
