IPOH: Several months ago, Peraktastic/Ipoh Echo reported on a pile of garbage in front of the parking lot on Greentown 9 Avenue.
Despite waste collection efforts by the Ipoh City Council (MBI), the environmental conditions remain dirty and are worsening.
Broken and uncovered garbage bins attract hungry stray animals, turning the area into a focal point for their scavenging activities.
Scattered rubbish emits a putrid odor, creating a repulsive sight for anyone passing through the area.
To address this issue, MBI must take decisive action to ensure this area is not used as a dumping site, given its busy pedestrian traffic and parking facilities.
It would be more prudent for MBI to relocate the waste disposal site to a location farther away from the public’s attention.
Immediate action is crucial, especially with the state of Perak, particularly Ipoh, anticipating an influx of visitors for the Visit Perak 2024 campaign.
