IPOH (Aug 5): Residents in the city are unsatisfied about “uncollected rubbish” in their midst. According to a survey carried out by Ipoh City Council (MBI), the “satisfaction level of ratepayers had dropped in the second quarter of the year”, reported The Star.

Ipoh mayor Datuk Rumaizi Baharin told the daily that MBI was aware that residents were dissatisfied owing to “several issues, mainly about uncollected rubbish”.

“We carry out our surveys quarterly and are aware of the low satisfaction rate because of some issues that have affected the people.

“As for the current (satisfaction) level, we are not sure yet as the third quarter is ongoing until September.

“We hope to see some improvements as we continue to resolve related issues, especially with the new compactor trucks for our rubbish collection services,” he said after chairing a full board meeting.

Rumaizi later officially took delivery of two rear-end loader rubbish compactor trucks at the MBI HQ.

Costing RM797,000 per unit, each truck can load up to 10 tonnes of rubbish per trip.

He revealed that are made to “withstand the acidic elements from the rubbish”.

“With proper maintenance, the trucks can last up to 10 years,” he said.
