MIRI: Miri City Council (MCC), anticipating huge volumes of domestic and bulky waste in the coming Chinese New Year celebration, has allocated 49 Roll-On Roll-Off (RORO) bins to housing estates.

According to MCC in a statement on Saturday (Jan 15), the bins had been placed at 36 strategic locations to enable residents in the area to dispose their domestic waste.

They will be placed at Taman Tunku/Lambir/Luak Zone, Jalan Luak-Bakam Zone, Jalan Riam/Lopeng Zone, Krokop /Piasau Zone, Pujut Zone, Piasau Utara / Tudan Zone, Desa Senadin Zone, Permyjaya Zone and Lutong / Kuala Baram Zone.

The Festival Cleaning campaign will start on Jan 17 and will end on Feb 7, depending on the location.

MCC hoped residents would utilise the provided bins and refrain from dumping rubbish indiscriminately, especially on road verges, road reserves or open spaces as this would not only become an eyesore, but also create potential breeding grounds for mosquitoes and other diseases bearing insects.

For any enquiries, the public can contact the MCC’s Office at 085-433501 or Public Cleansing and Maintenance Section (085-442411).
