The residents of Kampong Tengah Padang in Petegas, complained about the huge pile of foul stinging garbage dumped at the road side which caused much hazard to health and endanger the environment in the kampong. The people complain that the huge pile of rotten garbage had not been collected by the Penampang Council for many weeks.

The Sabah DAP local government and housing bureau chief Edward Ewol Mujie received the complaint and inspected the garbage dump and found that the site is really unbearable and the condition is bad, much of the rubbish had been dumped directly to the Petagas River too.

Edward when arrived at the site, and found something that is truly insulting and totally in contras to the filthy dump site. There is a large beautiful sign board erected just next to the dump site, saying “keep your environment clean”! What is the use of the big sign board while the authority can not even carry out their work effectively?

The Penampang Council should immediately send their workers and trucks to remove the garbage form the area. They must provide at least four pieces of suitable community bins for the use of the kampong folks, and to regularly clear the bins.

There must be notice boards erected by both side of the river banks to tell people not to throw their rubbish into the Petagas River. The rubbish in the river will eventually ended up in Tanjong Aru beach or even in KK sea front.
