“The music will be played from 7am-7pm to notify residents whenever the rubbish trucks are in their areas,” said Klang Municipal Council (MPK) secretary Ikhsan Mukri (pix).
The novel idea was disclosed during the council’s Full Board meeting last Friday.
Ikhsan said MPK hopes the move will curb the public from dumping their household waste everywhere.
“This is one of our new methods (to deter illegal dumping) which we are excited to try out,” he said.
The idea, which was presented earlier to local leaders, rubbish contractors and residents, was well received.
Currently, the council is still waiting to get copyright to the music which will then be edited to suit the local communities.
Once that is dealt with, the council will move ahead with their “garbage and music” experiment.
