New Straits Times: S'gor halts illegal dumping activities at its state land
SHAH ALAM: The Selangor state government has swiftly halted illegal dumping activities at five plots of state land at different locations in the Hulu Langat district.
Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari told the state legislative assembly that the five pieces of land were part of 13 where illegal dumping activities had been detected.
They involved a road reserve at Twin Palm in Sungai Long, Desa Budiman, Lot 1848 Rinching Hulu, Kolam Air Panas in Sungai Serai and Lot 908 in Taman Universiti.
In the case of the Twin Palm road reserve, Amirudin said it was no longer active while in Desa Budiman, it was a piece of land proposed for Selangor State Agriculture Corporation where a warning sign had been put up and the access blocked.
At Lot 1848 Rinching Lot, machinery had been seized while a warning sign had been erected at Kolam Air Panas in Sungai Serai.
As for Lot 908 in Taman Universiti which involved dual ownership, machinery found on government land was confiscated and the process of identifying owners of the other section was in progress.
Amirudin (Sungai Tua-PH) said this when asked by Edry Faizal Eddy Yusof(Dusun Tua-PH) on the number of land used as illegal dump sites in Hulu Langat last year.
Five private landowners were slapped with Notice 7A of the National Land Code for flouting the law by allowing their property to be used as illegal dump sites.
The lands are located at Black Water Lake in Bandar Mahkota Cheras, PT42293 in Semenyih, lot lands in Kampung Sungai Tekali, Lot 2122 in Taman Pinggiran Delima as well as Lot 1969 and Lot 1970 at Taman Pusara.
Amirudin added that Notice 7A would also be served to three land owners who had committed the same offence in Felcra Semungkis Batu 14, Kampung Simpang Balak and Jalan Kuari Sungai Long.
The authorities, he said, were in the midst of identifying the landowners.
