An empty and neglected shoplot along Jalan Sultan Yussuf, Ipoh has been used as an illegal dumpsite by the uncaring, causing concerns for neighbours.
The site has not only blighted the landscape but is a den for drug addicts. Waste ranging from construction debris, food, bottles, cans, etc. has been accumulating in the run-down building. It is posing a serious health threat to those living and working nearby.
Ipoh City Council has warned and fined the owner yet nothing has been done to clear the rubbish.
“This is unbecoming,” said a property owner to Ipoh Echo. He hoped the Council would act on his complaint, given the gravity of the situation.
