LUMUT: They visit for leisure but leave trash behind.

The negative attitude of some visitors to Teluk Senangin recreational beach leaving rubbish behind has become a common occurrence.

However, there are still concerned communities stepping up to take on the role of cleaning the beach area even without payment.

This is what the Residents’ Committee (JKP) of Zone 14 of the Manjung Municipal Council and the Rotary Club International Malaysia Welfare Organization are doing.

This beach cleaning program involves 45 members of the Rotary Club from Sitiawan, Ipoh, and Johor together with JKP Zone 14.

A total of 87 kilograms (kg) of rubbish was collected during the one-hour program, with plastic and polystyrene beverage bottles being the most common.

This initiative is in line with the corporate social responsibility of Rotary Club D3300 to contribute something beneficial towards environmental sustainability, especially in public recreational beach areas in the Manjung district.

A clean beach can attract more visitors.
