BINTULU: Individuals who waste their rubbish will be subject to immediate compound action under the Bintulu Development Authority (BDA) Anti-Litter Campaign, effective today.

The action is in accordance with the By-Law 18 (1) (f) The Local Authorities (Cleanliness) By Laws 1999, and BDA enforcement members will patrol from time to time to identified locations or any focal area of ​​the person crowded.

Individuals who have been found to be in breach of the offense will be subject to a compound of RM15 under the relevant law or according to the rate and frequency of the offense.

BDA also takes a serious look at the case of grave offense involving illegal rubbish removal in Bintulu and a maximum penalty of RM1,000 will be imposed on any offender arrested or offenders may be prosecuted in court.

BDA's General Manager, Rodziah Morshidi said BDA spent unnecessary costs for cleaning work at all times and if the money was not used in that direction, it could carry out many other activities of social interaction with the community, including helping the poor and needy.

 "The main reason why we did this walking event was to inform the community that we are serious about the anti-litter campaign and we will enforce the Clean Law 1999 beginning today.

"The hard work will be done by the BDA management to ensure that the key performance indicators (KPIs) for each compound and notice are resolved accordingly," she said when launching the Anti-Litter Campaign at Bintulu Sentral after the walk from Taman Tumbina, today.

 Also present were Bintulu Resident Jack Aman Luat; Bintulu District Officer, Mataip Sayu; Chief Minister's Political Secretary, Soo Li Ching as well as senior deputy general manager and senior managers of BDA.

He said the BDA would charge or compound the individuals who dumped the garbage on the floor (not in the trash can) while ensuring that Bintulu's environment was at its best in the hope that such campaigns would create a community of concern and responsible for environmental hygiene.
