As reported by: Wong KJ
Incident Date: 17 March 2021
Location: Jalan Sungai Tekali, Hulu Langat
A man was caught on camera casually dumping a whopping 20 bags of rubbish down a cliff.
As seen from the video below, the driver parked his Proton Persona by the roadside and began tossing out bags after bags of rubbish from his car. The culprit seemed carefree and did not seem to think that what he was doing was reprehensible at all.
It is also reported that this particular area has been a common spot for illegal dumping as the area is secluded by trees as well as mountains, making it a perfect spot to carry out these irresponsible acts.
No known action was taken against the culprit but the authorities would definitely need to start monitoring the area more closely and start taking action. As we all know, illegal dumping is not new and has certainly been a common occurrence in Malaysia but there has been minimal effort to prevent this issue.
Similarly, the Selayang Municipal Council (MPS) is offering a RM350 cash reward for individuals who report illegal dumping activities in areas under its jurisdiction. So, don’t let their actions go unpunished and alert the relevant authorities.
Regardless, we at Newswav urge the public to be responsible and dispose of your rubbish properly.
