Move to make Sec 52 a clean and healthy area
By FAZLEENA AZIZ
THE Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) is gearing up to make Section 52 a clean and healthy area by June next year.
Among the plans are upgrading of the drainage system, recycling centres and placement of garbage bins as well as more parking lots.
According to MBPJ councillor Anthony Thanasayan, who is also the chairman for the clean zone committee, the area will also be disabled-friendly.
He said they would be installing blind tiles as well.
“Some of the upgrading work has begun. The work on the drainage system will start at the end of the month.
“There is no point in us upgrading the area and the facilities if the public do not play their part in keeping the place clean,” he said.
During a recent site visit, MBPJ health director Dr Sadiah Abdullah said they would be spending at least RM500,000 for the upgrading exercise.
Sadiah also said they would be checking the area for proper garbage disposable bins.
“Those who do not dispose of their garbage properly will be compounded.
“As for the parking lots, there will be space for the disabled,” she said.
She added that they were going to buy two food composting machines, which would be placed at the hawker centre as part of the waste management exercise.
Section 52 was identified as the area to be cleaned up in the statewide Clean Zone competition.
