While our frontliners are struggling with the shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) faced in our country, other inconsiderate citizens are using and disposing these preventive products without care of how it impacts our environment!
Ever since the epidemic hit Malaysian waters a few months ago, the Klang River has seen a growing trend in new pollutants that particularly consist of face masks, gloves and hand sanitiser bottles, reports Sinar Harian.
“This trash could’ve been thrown into drains that flow into the river to cause pollution,” said Syaiful Azmen Nor, the Director of Quality Management (LLSB), who added that citizens needs to dispose of this preventive products properly once they’ve been used by throwing them into the allocated bins provided so it can be processed.
Aside from this polluting issue, Syaiful encouraged citizens to use their spare time this MCO period to think about the crucial conditions Malaysian rivers may face in the future. The director and his team urged the rakyat to put their artistic talents to the test and join the comic competition known as ‘SMG Water You Doing?’
“The ‘SMG Water You Doing?’ Contest is held in hopes of reminding the public that taking care of our rivers are important,” said the director.
Other countries may see their pollution clearing up because of this epidemic but that doesn’t seem to be the case with our country. Dispose of your preventive gear properly, guys!
