In line with the Penang State Government’s vision to increase the efficiency of recycling and recyclables-buyback processes, Penang Green Council is collaborating with Persatuan Ibu Bapa & Guru (PIBG) of SJK (C) Pai Chai, Penang Institute and Village Development and Security Committee (JKKK) Bukit Panchor to organise a series of spring cleaning recycling campaigns. The details are as follows:-
|1. SJK (C) Pai Chai, Jalan Batu Ferringhi, 11100 Ayer Itam||Now until 28 Jan 2016||Monday- Friday: 8am – 4pm||04-881 3439|
|2. Penang Institute, Jalan Brown||Now until 30 Jan 2016||Monday- Friday: 8.30am – 6pm|
Saturday: 10am – 2pm
|3. JKKK Bukit Panchor Recycling Centre, Jalan Belatuk, Taman Pancur Mutiara, 14300 Nibong Tebal||Now until 31 Jan 2016||24 hours||Tang 012-550 0999|
The recycling campaigns aim to collect used F&B glass bottles (the least popular recyclable item to be collected by recyclers) and household E-waste such as computer, laptop, refrigerator, air-conditioner, washing machine, small household electronic appliances, camera, mobile phone and etc. as listed in scheduled waste (SW110). The improper disposal of these wastes can lead to environment pollution and affects human health.
The PIBG of SJK (C) Pai Chai has initiated this recycling programme to raise fund for the school. The newly appointed headmistress, Madam Lee Hong Choo is concerned about the environmental awareness among her students on top of their academic performance.
In addition, Penang Institute also collects other recyclables like paper, plastic, aluminium cans, tin, clothes and beverage cartons (Tetra Pak)*. The amount collected from this exercise will be channelled towards the fees incurred.
The JKKK Bukit Panchor Recycling Centre was launched in June 2014 and is operated by the team lead by Mr. Tang Kean Poay. Tang also welcomes volunteers to join the team in sorting out the recyclables on the first Sunday of every month.
Public are encouraged to consider the impact of pollution and resource efficiency before throwing everything into trash bin. Let’s go green (Re-Think, Reduce, Reuse & Recycle) in the upcoming festive season!
