ILLEGAL:Action will be taken against lorries dumping concrete waste in Batu Caves
BATU Caves assemblyman Amirudin Shari chastised irresponsible parties for illegally dumping rubbish in the area. Despite many attempts by the authorities to tackle the problem, the perpetrators are still at it.
Previously, when the illegal dumping in Sungai Tua had led to a fire, Amirudin's staff fenced up the area and tresspassers were warned of legal action. The move temporarily solved the problem.
Amirudin said, however, there were still people who dumped building waste in the area.
He has seen lorries suspiciously parked by the roadside at Tanah Gantian, here.
Amirudin said his office, together with Selayang Municipal Council (MPS), will be meeting residents to gather evidence about the errant lorries before taking legal action against the operators. He also encouraged witnesses to come forward with the evidence they had gathered.
"Those with complaints, information and photographs can bring them to our community service centre," he said.
During a recent visit to the area, Amirudin, who was accompanied by MPS engineers and Zone 13 councillor Azizul Abu Bakar, found the lorries dumping concrete waste but not rubbish.
"MPS will monitor the area of the trespassers."
