River-bank Cleaning, Waste Separation And Liquefied Petroleum Gas (“LPG“) Safety Usage Awareness Programme
Jointly led by KPS and Landasan Lumayan Sdn Bhd (“LLSB“) and KDEBWM, the programme themed “Fishermen’s Jetty Beautification“ was a follow-up public outreach activity under the Selangor Maritime Gateway (“SMG“) project, an initiative by the Selangor State Government to clean, rehabilitate and sustainably develop the Klang River and the areas along it to create a maritime economy.
The programme held on 16 November 2019 attracted 150 volunteers who removed waste around the Fishermen’s Jetty Kampung Sungai Sireh Tambahan II, Port Klang, refurbished public facilities at the jetty and improved the landscaping. The activities also encouraged residents to practice waste separation and recycling through shared sessions. We managed to collect 2,788 kg of waste within the two-hour programme. We also contributed one unit of portable office cabin (20ft x 16ft x 8ft) for musolla cum fishermens' management centre and 20 palm trees.
We also conducted an LPG safety usage awareness programme and contributed 50 LPG regulators and hoses to the community. Apart from cleaning and rehabilitating Sungai Klang, this initiative by KPS will also improve the socioeconomic well-being of existing communities along the river.
