RM65 million Ringgit Question. Rubbish??‏

Dear all,

RM65 million yearly spent on collecting OUR (reads mine, yours, him, hers, everyone) RUBBISH. Waste of money.
What are WE going to do about it???? We are going to run out of money to collect our rubbish, that one thing for sure. Secondly, we are going to pile up more rubbish, endangering our environment, dirty, unhygienic and causing irreparable damage to environment.

The Star, December 17, 2009 excerpt,

Thursday December 17, 2009
2010 budget focuses on maintenance
"Its president Datuk Adnan Md Ikshan said they have allocated 58.5% or RM116.5mil for road patching, repairing streetlights and cleaning works."

In the RM116.5 million is the RM65 million for the collection of our RUBBISH, which 38% of the 58.5% of the total MPSJ expenses of RM200 million.
Fact: MPSJ do NOT have money to help to do recycling. I, too thought MPSJ has money. How wrong I was. So are many out there thinking that MPSJ has money? We may run out of oney to collect rubbish.

Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng recently held a press conference to highlight the park’s issue as well as three other parks in Segambut, namely Taman Sri Bintang, Taman Bamboo and Segambut Garden.
“It has come to my understanding that the Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL) contractors have not been cleaning the parks because City Hall can’t afford to pay them,” Lim said.

We have think, do, and act NOW to help to recycle. I have outline (in SJ Alert) how EVERYONE can help to do their little bit by start SEPARATE rubbish at source and once a month (suggest) on 1st Sunday of every month, group at same place and get some one to buy your residents recyclable rubbish.

It serves 2 purposes.
One, it helps a little to your residents association from the collection of cash from the sale of the recycle rubbish.
More IMPORTANTLY, you help to recycle and it means reducing rubbish throwing. It's that SIMPLE. Everyone does their little bit, and mother EARTH will be better for all.

I urge we all be responsible to our environment. Recycle Now, Recycle Daily. Reduce throwing rubbish. I attached write up 365 days rubbish not collected (at bottom). What would you do? for your reading.

365 days of uncollected rubbish. What would you do?
Everyone takes for granted that our rubbish will be collected by our local council. But what if,
the local council that you are living in from tomorrow onwards does not have the money to collect rubbish from you, all your neighbors and residents in your area for the next 365 days?

What would you do?

At the same time take it as a challenge to see for yourself how much rubbish each household throw for 365 days? How do you get rid of your rubbish legally for the next 365 days?

Have you ever give it a thought that some day it might happen?
I quote “It has come to my understanding that the Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL) contractors have not been cleaning the parks because City Hall can’t afford to pay them,” Lim Lip Eng said. (The Star Metro Nov 30, 2009)
Fact:
It cost RM65 million per year just to collect rubbish in MPSJ and it cost as reported RM140 million a year to collect rubbish in DBKL which is 38% of the total expenses of MPSJ. Just too much money wasted to collect our rubbish. Besides money, the environment that we live in are dirty, unhygienic and most importantly, our mother earth could not take anymore of our rubbish.

It cost RM65 million now and it will cost even more in the near future, billions of RM if no efforts are being made now to reduce the amount of rubbish that is being thrown.

So, have you able to come with some answers?

It is quite easy if you were to give it a serious thought and you must give it a serious thought. And the task of reducing the rubbish thrown get easier if everyone does their small part.

1. Start separate your rubbish at source into recyclable and rubbish.
2. If the area that you live in have a Residents Association (RA), suggest, every 1st Sunday of every month to gather all the recyclable items at a specified place and get a lorry that buys recyclable items to buy your recyclable items. You would help to reduce the rubbish that you throw as well as assisting your RA gets money to assist in the GnG in your area.
3. So you get rid of your recyclable items legally from your house
4. What’s left? Your kitchen wastes, meat and vegetables such orange and apple skins, etc
5. You have 2 choices; compost or enzyme the non meat kitchen wastes.
6. The actual waste that you throw is the meat bones, curries, leftover rice etc.
7. From having 3 big bags of rubbish per day, you actually end up with little bags of kitchen waste.

Everyone has to play their part to recycle and to reduce the cost of collecting rubbish. By doing so, perhaps local council can pressure the rubbish collectors to reduce the cost of collecting rubbish as it is proven that the rubbish that needs to be collected are much much less now.

You intentions are good... but there is no way MPSJ would run out of money for their operation.... all they need to do is to stop wasting money on 'funny' or 'questionable' projects... and hopefully, never buy 'overpriced' laptops again.. :p

Both of you are right on bull eyes as you put it. But the fact remains that MPSJ has no money and as you rightly puts,...."all they need to do is to stop wasting money on 'funny' or 'questionable' projects... and hopefully, never buy 'overpriced' laptops again.. "

MPSJ has leased the computers at higher price than they were to buy them outright. I suggest that perhaps both of you write to streets@nstp.com.my or fax to 03 2282 3001 so that the Mayor can answer them to your satisfaction.

I will be writing to the said email once I have posted this. May I also suggest that you all help to recycle to save the environment which is much more important than the RM65 million spent on collecting our rubbish in MPSJ.

Save the environment is for our future generations. If we do not act now, the future of our future generations looks bleak indeed.

Please also as Mohandas Gandhi said "You must be the CHANGE you wish to see in the world". I suggest the we be the CHANGE for once and help to save our environment.

I hope that I am Right on bull eyes.
Thank you.

DBKL can spend millions to buy roses to beautify thier lawns at the building and they dont have fund to collect rubbish. This is bull!
Collection of rubbish and making the street clean is supposed to be the main core of responsiblities of the council from the assement fees collected from the landed properties. :mad: :p :mad:

they need to do something with our parks, drove pass USJ 2/5 park, it is filled with rubbish all over the place........when will we clean them up.
heard from neighbours, there are a lot of rats burrowing in the park, most probably feed by the rubbish being thrown indiscriminately.

Good to know that people are aware that DBKL is spending RM32million to buy flowers instead to clear rubbish. Yes, what DBKL did was definitely not right, spending what you rightly says "Collection of rubbish and making the street clean is supposed to be the main core of responsiblities of the council from the assement fees collected from the landed properties"

Unfortunately, local councils are not prudent in spending taxpayers monies, hence we need to keep them on their toes by writing to your councillors, or in MPSJ case write to NST as per the email. I understand that MPSJ will answer the query. So people, please made known your unhappiness about local council issues to the right channel so that we can see improvement in the environment that we all live in.

Success story – Recycling at Indera Subang Condo

Nestled in USJ 6/2L is the oldest condo in USJ. However when one wonders into the condo, you are in for a surprise. It is spanking clean. No visible litter is found. Quite the opposite, there are many bins located almost at every corner of the condo for residents use.


One of the three towers. Bin centre at every floor of condo,
Notice that the compound is very clean, clean of kitchen rubbish and wash
clear of any litters everyday

More surprises await you. Indera Subang condo has successful implemented its recycling project for more than 6 years. Its management corporation manager, Major (Rtd) Meor Ahmad explains, “We do faced some problems too when the recycling project is initiated. Residents would still throw rubbish in the recycling bins. Constant reminders and support from the management council throughout the years, Indera Subang can now proudly claim to be one of the cleanest condo as well as proud to have successfully implemented its recycling project in USJ.”



Recycling bins outside each lift located Rubbish bin strategically placed out
at the basement car parks the each lift

The residents are used to throw only kitchen waste into the bin at the bin centre located at every floor of the condo. Recyclable items such papers, plastics, bottles and tins are separated at source to be placed in the three (3) recycling bins located outside the lifts at the basement car parks.

These recycle bins are emptied everyday. Major (Rtd) Meor adds “Residents are very happy as it is very clean and there are no complains. It also makes our job very much easier.”




Rubbish bin for the convenience of Compound clean and clear of any litter
residents to throw small items

“We strategically placed rubbish bins for the convenience of residents to throw small items of rubbish such papers and food wrappers. Moreover, it has become a habit of residents to keep the premises and compound clean. I supposed if everyone does its small part to keep the place clean and recycle, its makes it very much easier and we, as the manager of the condo would be very happy”, quips Major (Rtd) Meor.

Major (Rtd) Meor also adds that he would be more than happy to share his experiences and success in keeping Indera Subang condo clean as well as recycle should any condo would like to emulate and learn what they have achieved.

Well done Major and congratulations to you and all residents of Indera Subang condo.

Excellent works at Subang Inderah condo.

Mak, TQ for bringing your thoughts are recycling to the usj.com.my forum. Ive been following your emails and wanted to contribute.

m thinks that the concept of REDUCE REUSE RECYCLE can be implemented easily with a little bit of time and a lot of knowledge & creativity.

More importantly, we do not have to wait for the government to provide us with a recycling system. There are enough 'entrepreneurial' people who will take the initiative if they see a market.

For example, why can't your "Old Newspapers/Paper Lama" truck also pick up your recyclables and deliver them to the recycling centre?

Cheers, m
