Waste Separation Awareness Programme
KPS collaborated with KDEB Waste Management Sdn Bhd (“KDEBWM“) to organise the Recycle & Waste Separation Awareness Programme on 26 September 2019 at Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Pulau Ketam, Port Klang. There were 100 participants for this programme including 30 volunteers from KPS and KDEBWM. Through this initiative, we were able to raise awareness among school students on the importance of minimising waste and recycling as a fundamental element of conserving natural resources. KPS also donated RM1,500 to the school to help cover the cost of the school upkeep.
Waste management and recycling practices in schools help to set an example where students can emulate. Also, exposing students and the younger generation at Pulau Ketam on the importance of waste management thus encourages them to lead a healthier lifestyle in the future. These environmental activities are also vital to prepare the residents to focus on environmental protection given the prospects of the area becoming a regional tourist destination in the future.
