Raya feast with recycling in mind
This year’s Hari Raya celebration hosted by the Seberang Prai Municipal Council came with aneducation theme.
Greeting the council’s staff members and guests at the council headquarters in Bandar Perda, Bukit Mertajam, was a portable compost machine meant to promote recycling and waste separation at source.
There was also a display on how food waste such as chicken bones and vegetables were crushed and processed into compost.
Besides the usual three bin system for recyclables, non-recyclables and organic waste, an additional bin for contaminated recyclable wastes was also placed at the lobby during the event.
“In the past, any recyclable waste such as plastic bags contaminated with oil or sauce would go to the bin for food and organic waste.
“They were deemed unsuitable for recycling, and thus sent straight to the landfill for disposal.
"Realising that the plastics still have potential to be recycled, we collect and clean them before sending them for proper disposal as recyclable waste," he said.
Rozali said the compost machine is capable of collecting 5kg of food waste before turning them into compost within 24 hours.
“We want to encourage the practice of turning food waste into compost, and we hope event organisers will use compost machines at their functions,” he said, adding that MPSP’s Raya celebration this year was held in three districts, but the public were invited to the one in Bandar Perda.
