MBSA wants contractors to be committed

SHAH ALAM: Newly-appointed waste management contractors have been told not to squander the trust and opportunity to work with the Shah Alam City Council (MBSA).

Mayor Datuk Mohd Jaafar Mohd Atan, who addressed the 99 new contractors on Tuesday, said they were chosen from “hundreds” of other applicants.

“You were picked from a huge pool of hopefuls. Prove you can do the job and that we didn’t pick the wrong players for the team,” he said.

The advice comes amid acts of intimidation and sabotage by rogue contractors against MBSA and other local authorities in Selangor.

Last week, MBSA lodged four police reports after their contractors were prevented from carrying out their tasks in Section 7, 9 and 17.

Mohd Jaafar urged the new teams to carry out their public cleaning jobs according to procedure.

He said auditors from MBSA would go to each zone to evaluate the contractors.

“You’ve been on the job since Jan 1. You have your list of what is to be carried out. So go out there tomorrow and clean the drains, sweep the streets and please don’t leave the rubbish under a tree or other places,” he said.

The 99 contractors were vetted and chosen by the MBSA services and procurement department based on their bids for the open tenders.

The new contracts stipulate a two-year term of service which gives an opportunity for operators to recoup their investments.

This is because the contractors have to buy costly equipment like RORO (roll on-roll off) bins as well as public cleaning trucks.

The group will take care of public cleaning in the city which MBSA has divided into 99 zones.

Mohd Jaafar also told the contractors to concentrate this week on collecting bulk and garden.

The one-off arrangement is aimed at clearing the streets of waste that is left in public areas by rogue contractors.

“There are 99 contractors, and three days collection can solve almost 70% of the problem of waste left in Shah Alam,” he clarified.

He told them to use their mobile phones to take pictures of the garbage before and after collection to show proof that they had done their job.
