Free Garbage Collection Services In NS, July 13-27

SEREMBAN, July 11 (Bernama) -- A waste management concessionaire will provide free garbage collection services in the state from July 13 until July 27, in conjunction with Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

SWM Environment Sdn Bhd which is responsible for solid waste and public cleansing management for Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor, will carry out the services in stages, here, Nilai, Port Dickson, Rembau, Tampin, Kuala Pilah, Jempol and Jelebu.

Its group general manager Adnan Ibrahim said the free service was part of the company's corporate social responsibility to the public who wanted to dispose of dated, useless items such as cupboards, tyres, mattresses, chairs, tables, refrigerators and televisions.

"This service is hoped to stop illegal dumping of garbage which usually happens during festive seasons and public holidays. Last year, SWM collected about 102 metric tonnes of garbage in the state during Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

"We will place roll on roll off garbage bins at appropriate sites for the convenience of residents at housing estates where the majority are Muslims," he said in a statement here today.

The public can channel their complaints or enquiries to SWM through its toll free line, 1-800-88-7472.
