MPMA-CHEVRON PHILLIPS CHEMICAL BAGAN HAILAM CLEAN UP 2019

As a collaboration between KDEB Waste Management Sdn Bhd, Chevron Phillips Chemical Malaysia, Tzu-Chi Malaysia and MPMA, the programme aimed to raise awareness on marine litter and pollution to the century-old fishing village of Bagan Hailam, Selangor.

Held on 3 November 2019, a total of 2.5 tonnes of litter were cleared from a hot-spot area that was strewn with rubbish. The largely contaminated waste was then taken by KDEB to the Jeram sanitary landfill for disposal.

The clean up event is part of a longer-term effort to empower the residents of Bagan Hailam to address improper waste disposal, and raise awareness on marine litter and the importance of preventing pollution in the rivers and marine environment.
