RM1,000 Fine For Illegally Throwing Garbage Having Impact

The implementation of a RM1,000 fine without appeal for illegal litterers has been seen to have a major impact, especially on the environment in this city.

Of course, many are beginning to open their eyes and realize the pain that awaits them if they are still stubborn and do not want to change their attitude.

According to Ipoh City Council Member (MBI) Zone 14, Dr Richard Ng, he himself can see positive changes in areas that used to be the focus or location of illegal waste.

He said through a post on Facebook, MBI took a firm stance in dealing with the issue, which previously had dragged on for a long time.

“MBI is serious about taking strict action against those who throw away garbage illegally. Of course, everyone is aware that garbage should be disposed of in the bins provided.

“The law enforcers involved succeeded in identifying and imposing a fine of RM1,000 on the offenders found to be throwing waste illegally.

“A few days after the operation was carried out, I was happy to see the illegal waste site in Desa Tambun Indah clean and litter-free,” he told Ipoh Echo.

He hopes that the community will help MBI by reporting irresponsible perpetrators in their respective areas.

Previously, the media reported that as of August 12, a total of 15 individuals were fined RM1,000 for illegally throwing garbage around the city.
