Littering and irresponsible disposal of rubbish has always been a problem in Malaysia.

But it doesn’t have to be anymore.

The Taiping Municipal Council (MPT) took to their Facebook page to showcase their initiative towards stopping irresponsible Malaysians from throwing their rubbish in non-designated disposal areas, by installing CCTV cameras to track and fine them.

They wrote, “The problem of illegal rubbish piles in residential areas and outside of garbage bins is still endless and is at a very critical level. Cleaning is done regularly with a frequency of once a week and the estimated weight of illegal waste reaches 40 tons during one cleaning job.”

“To monitor illegal waste disposal and the habit of throwing rubbish outside the bin, the Taiping Municipal Council (MPT) has implemented the Portable CCTV Pilot Project in two hotspots since December of last year.”

The two locations mentioned are the Kamunting market garbage disposal lot and Taman Kota Jaya, Simpang.

“Through the CCTV footage, MPT has successfully recorded the activities of irresponsible parties throwing garbage outside the rubbish bin and illegally, in both locations. The CCTV footage also managed to record the registration number of the vehicle owners who were detected dumping garbage in the areas.”

“Through the CCTV footage, MPT will check at the Road Transport Department to identify the vehicle owners.” they added.

Since they’ve launched this initiative, they’ve successfully issued 67 compound offers amounting in RM16,750.00 and another 18 compound offers amounting in RM4,500.00.

“Any parties who dump illegal waste will be prosecuted under the Public Hygiene By-Laws (Taiping Municipal Council) 1984 (Pk.P.U.18). A compound offer of not more than RM250.00 will be issued and if convicted, perpetrators may be fined not more than RM2,000 or imprisoned for not more than one year, or both.”

Hence, with such proactive measures to curb illegal waste dumping, irresponsible parties who choose to throw rubbish in places that are based on their convenience and not a designated area will think twice as they will finally be facing consequences for their actions.

We genuinely hope that other district, city and town councils will also come together to implement this initiative to help create a cleaner environment for the community.
