Keeping toilets clean in SEA Park, PJ


Petaling Jaya Utara (PJU) Federal Development coordinator Dato’ Dr. Wong Sai Hou launched a cleanliness awareness campaign to keep toilets clean at the Section 21 SEA Park Rukun Tetangga (RT) centre in Petaling Jaya on Saturday morning 18th December 2010. The project was kicked off with a RM5,000 budget from the Ministry of Housing and Local Government.

The cleanliness campaign which also included recycling and serving Tong Yuen or balls of glutinuous rice in conjunction with the Winter Solstice Festival (Dong Zhi) received tremendous support from everyone.

Present at the launch to show their support and commitment to the campaign were Rukun Tetangga (RT) Section 21 SEA Park chairman Gan Keng, Section 21 SEA Park Residents Association (RA) deputy chairman Lee Soon Fah, Beautiful Gates Foundation for the Disabled executive director Sia Siew Chin, representatives from Society of Independent Living For The Disabled, owners and operators of business premises, committee members of SEA Park RT and RA, volunteers and residents.

It was a good show of shared responsibility of maintaining cleanliness in their living areas.

After the launch, Dato’ Dr. Wong and the group pasted stickers with the words “Jagalah Kebersihan Tandas Kita” (Keep Our Toilet Clean) and its translation in Mandarin on the toilet doors of business premises to ensure the message gets across to the users.

He advised the owners and operators on the importance of clean toilets and their responsibilities towards cleanliness by abiding the rules and regulations of keeping the toilets clean as the public would not come to eateries with dirty toilets.

Shop-owners who really care for their customers will ensure that the toilets are always kept spick and pan.
