DBKL plans to use more recycling machines in popular locations


KUALA LUMPUR: The Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) plans to expand the use of Reverse Recycling Vending Machine (RRVM) in popular locations in the city soon.

Kuala Lumpur Mayor Datuk Seri Mahadi Che Ngah said to start that a unit of the automatic recycling machine has been placed at the bus stop in front of Menara DBKL 2, Jalan Raja Laut to see the suitability and effectiveness of its use for three months.

He said DBKL would widely implement the project by placing units at popular locations in the city such as public transport routes and tourist spots like Saloma link pedestrian bridge and Dataran Merdeka.

“Small waste such as plastic bottles, paper, aluminum cans can be thrown into the automatic recycling machine and members of the public will be rewarded five sen for each item recycled, which will be transferred to their bank account “, did he declare. when met after the launching ceremony of the use of the machine here.

According to Mahadi, the project is a collaboration between DBKL and Orie Engineering Sdn Bhd, and he hopes townspeople will use the 220-liter machine to recycle their waste, which will help the city fight illegal waste disposal.

Asked about the Pasar Dato Keramat traders’ claim that the DBKL-appointed developer had failed to redevelop the market after more than five years, Mahadi said he had instructed the Department of Economic Planning and Development of DBKL to prioritize the review of the project so that it can be expedited.

“I will have to find the reason for the delay because it is a third party agreement,” he said.

On June 11, another fire broke out and destroyed a shop at Pasar Dato Keramat (Old Market) in Jalan Keramat Dalam here after more than 40 shops were burnt down in March last year.

In March this year, Mohd Zaili Mohd Zainordin, the project manager of Sinotech Properties Development Sdn Bhd, the developer appointed to redevelop the market, told Bernama that the redevelopment project was to start in 2024 in stages.

He said that according to the plan, a modern market equipped with multi-storey car parks as well as wet and dry market space would be built on the Perlis Satu public housing site next to the old market, adding that the new market could accommodate 333 traders.

He said blocks of serviced apartments consisting of 1,200 units would be built on the original site of Pasar Dato Keramat, adding that the whole project would take between five and seven years. – Bernama
