The mock keys were presented to Ramli Mohd Tahir, General Manager, KDEBWM and 10 sub-contractors of Majlis Perbandaran Klang (MPK) by Book Lim Guan, Head of Sales, Vista Wheels Sdn Bhd and Jacky Tan, Senior Manager, Fuso Retail Sales and Product Management, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia Commercial Vehicles. Also present was Mohd Faizal Tuah, Manager Technical and Equipment, KDEBWM.
“Since we were appointed by the State Government of Selangor in July, 2016 to manage domestic waste collection and public cleansing in the Klang Municipal Council (MPK), we have invested significantly in machine and equipment. We have confidence in Mitsubishi Fuso as it is affiliated with Germany-based Daimler AG and has Japanese technology. We are happy with the after-sales services and performance of Fuso, especially in fuel consumption and safety as well as the professional and good quality body work from Green Concerns,” said Ramli.
According to him, many old wastage trucks that were currently in operation had a Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) of 5,000kg. But the 10 arm-roller trucks that the company purchased had a GVW of 7,500kg, which allowed it to work more efficiently, carrying more loads and bulky items such as old sofas.
To date, the company had more than 225 trucks, including 85 Fuso arm-roller trucks and 140 garbage compactor trucks. “We have invested RM65 million on waste machines, garbage trucks, road sweepers and high pressure water jetters,” he added.
KDEBWM is 100-per cent wholly owned by Menteri Besar Selangor Incorporated (MBI). Currently, the company managed the Domestic Waste Collection and Public Cleansing services in Selayang Municipal Council (MPS), Ampang Jaya Municipal Council (MPAJ) and Klang Municipal Council (MPK).
He revealed that the company collected more waste compared to the previous service provider, whereby 2,000 tonnes of waste was collected daily from the 3 municipal councils. “We will be taking over another 6 to 7 more municipal councils and will need 300 to 400 more trucks. This is the second handover of Fuso arm-roller trucks, following the previous 10 units. We will definitely buy more trucks from Vista Wheels.”
For complete visibility and monitoring of the company’s fleet, all of its trucks were equipped with Global Positioning System (GPS). This, he said, was especially useful in helping the company act quickly whenever it received cleansing public complaints.
“In addition to that, we have launched the iClean Selangor mobile app, which was made available on Android’s Play Store since 1st July, 2016. It is currently available for use in Klang, Selayang and Ampang Jaya. After a simple registration process, the application requires its users to take photographs of uncollected garbage and the complaint would be forwarded to the centralised command centre for record and monitoring. The photos are automatically geotagged with their location and forwarded to the Site Supervisors, who after checking them would send the complaints to contractors to resolve them within 24 hours.”
He hoped to see more public accessing this application so that it would be fast and easy for them to lodge their complaints on waste collection and public cleansing.
Ramli concluded that all the investments and efforts had shown how committed the company was in maintaining the cleanliness of the Selangor state. The most significant achievements for the company, he said, were the statistics in public complaints against domestic waste collection; it recorded an average of 95-per cent drop in the participating municipalities - Klang, Selayang and Ampang Jaya.
