6+6 Policy Ensures Garbage Collection According To Schedule


PETALING JAYA, 16 JAN: To improve the quality of garbage collection services in Petaling Jaya, the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) implemented the ‘six plus six’ contract policy for all contractors of the service.

In the immediate effect policy, every contractor is only awarded a contract for six months and will be resumed only if they manage to perform well.

The Mayor of Petaling Jaya, Datin Paduka Alinah Ahmad said that the action was taken to ensure that contractors are on schedule and are within standards of garbage collection.

“This policy is already running, if there are old contractors whose contract has long expired, we will study their performance and if it is good, we will award a six month contract only.

“No longer will we directly award a contract up to two years like now,” Alinah said.

She said this after acknowledging the acceptance and signing the acceptance of appointment as a MBPJ Council Member at Dewan Bunga Tanjung, MBPJ headquarters here, this morning.

She made the acknowledgement and signed the acceptance in front of council members and MBPJ department heads who were present.

She also said that MBPJ will review existing laws to deal efficiently with illegal gambling centres.

“The action was taken, but because we have to adhere to the law, we have to return all confiscations and when it is returned, they reopen, so it is less effective.

“Thus, we will review whether those laws are Local Authority (PBT) By-Laws or Local laws.

“If they are By-Laws, we can amend them, but if they are Local Government laws, it is the power of Parliament, Parliament must act in amending it,” she said.

In addition, Alinah also informed that she will monitor all complaints to MBPJ to ensure that the complaints are given attention and can be resolved within the prescribed period.
