First RMCO Gotong-Royong

AFTER months of staying away from any outdoor activity that might risk exposing volunteers to the threat of Covid-19, members of JKP Zone 3 have restarted their machinery to carry out gotong-royong programs.

Last month, they kick started their efforts to clean up a whole big pile of bulky waste dumped at the road shoulder at the Good Year Court 9 low-cost flats neighbourhood.

Led by MPSJ councilor Lee Jen Uyin, volunteers together with staff of the joint management body spent the morning clearing the heaps of rubbish which included old furniture, mattresses and discarded waste from the neighbourhood.

The effort was to make sure the area did not become a mosquito breeding spot as well as a breeding spot for rodents.
