The habit of throwing rubbish irresponsibly to a point where it fills the drains is the main problem many cities are facing.

In Kuala Lumpur, our country’s capital, this issue is one of the main contributors of flash floods, which peaked at the end of last year where many premises were damaged and businesses were forced to temporary close.

According to a report by Kosmo, Alam Flora Sdn. Bhd. (Alam Flora) has always played a role in ensuring a level of cleanliness in its administrative areas, collecting a total of 2,300 tons of domestic waste every day around KL.

Though, despite their hard work, rubbish always seem to be clogging up our drainage systems 

Alam Flora’s Chief Operations Officer, Azahari Zainal Abidin shared that special squads have been prepared with instructions, due to the flood forecast for the middle of November.

“Alam Flora, together with the local authorities at the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) and the Federal Territory Solid Waste and Public Cleaning Management (SWCorp) have redoubled their efforts to ensure that garbage is not left everywhere,”

“In addition, our side is also focused on the problem of blocked drains so as to not contribute to the risk of major floods. We have also made a thorough and organised plan in the face of flood disasters and continuous monitoring will be carried out in flood hotspot areas,” he said.

These areas include Jalan Brunei, Jalan Pudu, Jalan Changkat Thambi Dollah, Jalan Cheras and Jalan Maharajalela.

But, everyone has to play a role

“The task of cleaning is not only the work of the authorities or Alam Flora, but we need the support of all parties, namely the people themselves, the community, in terms of media exposure, management operations and operators need to improve further for awareness and litter cleaning and recycling practices,” he explained.

He also requests that the authorities be more strict against individuals who is not disciplined in maintaining the cleanliness of the country, especially involving hawkers and traders who are allegedly throwing food waste and solids directly down the drains.

Stay tuned for more updates.
