IPOH: The revelation made by the representative of Ipoh Echo/Peraktastic earlier regarding the issue of illegal garbage received a very encouraging response from the public.
This issue frequently plagues the residents in this state, with some claiming that there seems to be no solution despite efforts by the authorities to collect the waste.
This time, the same issue has resurfaced in Persiaran Wira Jaya Timur 31 Taman Leow Yan Sip and Persiaran Wira Jaya Timur 42 Taman Panglima Gunung Rapat.
Undoubtedly, the scattered and strewn waste, often caused by scavenging dogs or cats, mars the scenery. Additionally, the unpleasant odour arising from the illicit waste is quite disconcerting.
One resident in the area, who wishes to remain anonymous, stated that several complaints have been filed, but unfortunately, the same incidents persist.
“Numerous complaints have been made by the public, and while there have been cleanup efforts, there is no long-term action taken by the relevant authorities.
“I want this issue to be highlighted to create awareness among the public not to dispose of waste on the roadside and to become more responsible.
“We hope that the Ipoh City Council (MBI) and the representatives of the residents in the area will take appropriate measures for the cleanliness and comfort of the public,” he said.
