Inconsiderate Garbage Dumping


Thumbs Down

Garden refuse and other garbage from Club Condominium, in Laluan Harimau opposite the Golf Club, are being dumped at the junction of Tiger Close, a narrow road near the condominium. Upon seeing the pile of garbage, other residents have started to throw their garbage there. About half of the road is blocked by garbage. Within a few days new garbage was added to the pile.

Tiger Close

Tiger CloseDr Loh Seck Poh, a resident living in Tiger Close, said that previously MBI did collect the garbage occasionally, but lately there has been no collection for months. The place looks like a dump site and at times the pile is almost the height of an adult person. Since this is a narrow road it is difficult and dangerous to drive, near misses happen frequently.

During the meeting I arranged between Ee Cheng Tak, Committee Head, Residents Committee, Club Condominium and Dr Loh, Ee agreed that the pile of garbage next to the condominium is an eyesore. He informed that he had visited MBI a number of times and complained. No action has been taken.

Ee acknowledged the problem faced by residents living on Tiger Close. He assured that in future he will make arrangements for the garden refuse to be stored within the condominium prior to collection.

  1. Back to square one. Yes, MBI was clearing all the garden refuse and hosehold items efficently at Lim Garden, but for the last 2 months, MBI has negleted their works. The lorries are seen, but they only take the garden refuse and hosehold items along the main road of Jalan Hassan. The inner roads are forgotten. The team of drain cleaners are not around as often as before.
    The person in charge of drains and rubbish collection should be taken to task. He should be suspended or show cause letter be given to him by the MBI Management.
    Remember, the residents are settling their assessements promptly and we expect MBI to act likewise.
    The Dato Bandar and the MBI Secretary should be on the grounds to witness for themselves the state in which the surroundings are. The number of complaints is increasing daily. How is the Datuk Bandar going to achieve his vision of 85% clean of Ipoh. This is a dream which wont manifest.
    I extend a invitation to Dato Bandar or The Secretary to visit Taman Lim any time and I would be pleased to take them around. Likewise other Tamans should do the same.
