The one thing we as Malaysians recently discovered during the floods is the importance of maintaining our drainage systems and to dispose of our waste properly.

Or in simpler terms, if we don’t throw things into our drains, water will flow properly and efficiently.

But, what happens when the people who we rely on to clean our streets and drains, end up clogging them up even more?

The Inforoadblock Facebook page recently shared videos of a woman confronting a street cleaner, after he had swept rubbish, leaves and twigs from the roadside into a drain at Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur.

They wrote, “Viral videos of an Alam Flora cleaner sweeping rubbish and dumping it down the drain. Where is the supervisor who monitors these workers?”

In the video, the woman can be heard confronting the worker and his colleague. She tells the colleague to show the cleaner how to sweep the rubbish towards the sidewalk, instead of towards the curb where the drain opening is located.

The colleague then used the opposite end of their broom to dig out all of the leaves, twigs and rubbish that can be seen in the drain. And might we add, it’s a lot.

This attitude cannot be tolerated because such acts clog the drain and if it rains, it will cause flash floods,” said the post.

We genuinely hope that the local authorities look into supervising their street cleaners to ensure that they are not contributing to potential floods in our cities.
