Uncollected rubbish will give rise to floods, Selangor warned

SHAH ALAM: Uncollected rubbish in several areas of the state is worrying and can result in massive floods if the relevant authorities continue to ignore the issue, said Selangor Barisan Nasional coordinator Datuk Seri Mohd Zin Mohamed.

The state Barisan Nasional Rakyat Service Centre, he said, had received many complaints from disgruntled residents on this matter.

“Barisan can only highlight this issue and push for something to be done. The state government should not politicise this anymore as they are ruling the state.

“The people should be their main priority and not anything else,” he told reporters here yesterday.

Mohd Zin also claimed that the 50 garbage compressor trucks recently purchased by the state government were yet to be in operation.

“My source told me that these compressors have not passed the checks by the Road Transport Department. It is now obvious that the state (government) has wasted RM14.5mil of the people's money.”

The compressors were purchased from China for the Shah Alam City Council and Petaling Jaya City Council.
