KUCHING (Aug 22): Dato Wee Hong Seng, Mayor of Kuching South City Council (MBKS), urges the public to keep their domestic dogs on the premises as the city council will start catching strays next month.
During his weekly Facebook Live session yesterday, Wee said there had been 29 dog bite cases involving pets and eight cases involving strays between August 1 and 14, in areas under MBKS.
“I urge dog owners to cooperate by keeping their pets in their enclosure before actively taking enforcement actions next month,” he said.
Wee noted that reopening the state’s economy must take into account the local Covid-19 situation.
“I hope that both the ruling government and the opposition would agree to end political uncertainty and focus on the Covid-19 pandemic,” he said.
Other topics discussed included the three-day closure of the Sungai Apong market for disinfection after a positive Covid-19 case was found. It will reopen on Tuesday.
Wee said temporary ro-ro bins have been placed in public areas to avoid disruptions in waste collection due to staff shortages at Trienekens Sarawak.
For residents who live in areas under MBKS, the RoRo bins can be found in the Tabuan Laru Recycling Center and in the BDC Recycling Center (opposite Everrise BDC).
In the Kuching City North Commission (DBKU) areas, they are located at Lorong C, Dewan Kampung Tunku; Kampung Muara Tebas Bin Center; Jalan Temenggong Haji Gobil (next to the old fire station); Lorong 5 Dewan Jalan Temenggong Haji Gobil; Pondok KRT Semariang Aman; and Avenue 6 Boulevard, Metrocity.
RoRo containers are located under the Padawan Municipal Council (MPP) in Taman Malihah Jalan Belatok 7; Wira village community center, Lorong 20; Bata Kawa New Bazaar (behind the Batu Kawa Service Center) and Lee Ling temporarily Hawker Center.
If you have any questions, please contact the Trienekens hotline 082-612300 Monday to Friday from 8.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. or by email [email protected] or via the Trienekens Customer Care mobile app.
