KUCHING: Trienekens Sarawak Sdn Bhd appealed to the public to minimise trash wherever feasible as well as to use the Roll-on Roll-off (RoRo) containers provided and ensure that all rubbish is tightly packed to avoid spillage.
It said in a statement, over 30 percent of the company’s manpower are affected by the enhanced movement control order (EMCO) and quarantine orders limiting the company’s workforce in the municipal waste collection team.
The company is seeking public’s patience and understanding as waste collection services across the city under the municipalities of The Commission of The City of Kuching North (DBKU), Kuching South City Council (MBKS) and Padawan Municipal Council (MPP) will be affected in the next two weeks.
Mason Barau Trieneken’s Department manager for Logistics & Services assures the public that the company would work tirelessly to quickly address these issues.
“We are doing all we can to provide the best possible service for the public in this extremely difficult circumstance and where we are not able to service a collection area as scheduled, we aim to clear the waste as soon as possible.
“We trust that our collection services will recover within 2 to 3 weeks, as our staff are gradually released from quarantine and as enhanced movement control orders are lifted,” he said
In view of the affected waste collection services, Trienekens will be placing Roll-on Roll-off (RoRo) containers in designated areas to facilitate household waste disposal from the public.
RoRo containers will be available for public use at the six locations effective on 30 July in DBKU municipal area at Muara Tebas Bin Centre; Lorong Cahaya Aman 2, Taman Puteri; Taman Semariang Aman (Opposite Cahaya Permai junction); Lorong C, Kampung Tunku (Near Hall); Jalan Temenggong Haji Gobil (Behind Petra Jaya Fire Station) and Lorong 6 Boulevard, Metro City.
