Eyesore...Hannah with MPSJ councilors and urban services department staff looking at one of the dumping spots in USJ2
SUBANG JAYA: RESIDENTS who are in the habit of dumping their rubbish indiscriminately along the roads will find themselves RM1,000 poorer if they are caught in the act.
ADUN Subang Jaya Hannah Yeoh said those caught in the act would have to face the music since all efforts by the Subang Jaya Municipal Council to deter such irresponsible behaviour had failed to stem the worsening problem of indiscriminate dumping.
"I urge residents to be more civic conscious and to dispose of their rubbish properly. Don't just throw it anywhere you like."
"If you see your neighbour dumping their rubbish improperly, advise them. If they still do it, call MPSJ for them to take action," she said during a press conference held in USJ2 to highlight the worsening problem.
Residents who have bulky waste to dispose of or for those who wish to lodge complaints can call the council's urban services department hotline at 03-8026 7431 (during office hours) or call MPSJ's main hotline at 03-5637 6545 (24 hours).
