    litters everywhere in subang and Usj

    i went to padang to jog but lately i find that litters everywhere in padang,drains and roads.Have MPSJ terminated the services of cleaners?We pay cukai pintu and all taxes and we get this in return.Not fair.

    come to the USJ2/5F padang. it is strewn with rubbish.
    1st of all, i have seen many kids just throwing rubbish everywhere. i think kids these days have no values at all. maybe they have seen their parents doing it. try to follow a school bus full of kids one day and you will find sweet wrappers, plastic bags etc. being thrown out as the bus moves along.
    2ndly, MPSJ never come and empty the rubbish bins in the padang. they are over flowing and some of them burnt down, probably by people throwing burning cigarettes inside.

    once i just brought a rubbish bag and started to pick up all the rubbish in the padang. there were many kids playing and some adults walking around. not only did they not help, they look at me as if i am strange. i am sorry, i have no more hope for malaysians.

    No money... they've hired too many enforcement officers instead...

    Yah, but who is responsible for littering in the first place?

    Seems to me that a good dose of civic consciousness is called for.

    Or are we expecting an army of Bangladeshi, Indonesian or Indian cleaners to pick up after us? Like what's happening in Spore?

    I say hit the litterers with hefty fines and CWOs (corrective work orders). Maybe the MPSJ should take a lawatan sambil belajar trip to Spore to see how its done!

    Exactly, if you know that you would have to clean the mess up...in Malaysian heat...wearing a flourescent vest...you would be a lot less likely to throw it

    I believe the root of the problem is lack of enforcement by the local authority. Their lack of enforcement and 'complacent' mentality have given good opportunities for the public to break the laws.

    Look at the Singaporeans...they would gladly throw rubbish when they are in M'sia but would never dare do so in their own country.

    Stricter laws, tighter enforcements (+visibility) and follow-ups can help solve many issues including littering in public area. MPSJ must also work together with the public to be their 'eyes & ears' and to act fairly, justly and promptly when there are real complaints. However, how many times hv real concerns been ignored???

    Hence, the public musn't be entirely blamed when the local authority themselves are NOT doing what they are supposed to do!

    let's not use singaporeans as example all the time because i think they are a bad example.

    look at australia or UK. hardly any enforcement. but you can see that people will carry their trash until they find a rubbish bin. there was a time in the UK when rubbish bins were taken off the streets because the Irish Republicans Terrorists were putting bombs in them. the streets were still spotlessly clean.
