‘LET’S DO IT RIGHT’
SEGREGATE and manage your household and industrial waste in a better way for the sake of the environment!
Waste management has been a perennial problem over the years in our society and it is hoped that ongoing awareness programmes and campaigns will educate communities in separating and recycling their household waste for a healthier life.
It also means protecting the environment from harm and contributing to maintaining the natural ecological balance.
Universiti Kuala Lumpur Malaysian Institute of Chemical and Bioengineering Technology (UniKL MICET) was invited to join in the “Let’s Do It Right’ Campaign 2020’ – a national level programme organised by Solid Waste and Public Cleansing Management Corporation (SWCorp) in collaboration with Freeport A’ Formosa and the Alor Gajah Municipal Council on 23 August at Freeport A Formosa Resort.
SWCorp is an agency under the Housing and Local Government Ministry. The one-day exhibition focuses on proper domestic solid waste management among the local community.
“This programme aims to establish cooperation between the government and the private sector as well as non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to cultivate hygiene practices in line with the government’s intention to create a green literate society,” said Dr Nadia Razali, a senior lecturer in the Environmental Engineering Technology Section of UniKL MICET.
She is also the project manager for UniKL MICET solid waste management project and training.
Dr Nadia holds a PhD in Construction from Heriot-Watt University in the United Kingdom, Master in Environment – Science & Technology (Universiti Putra Malaysia) and Bachelor in Environmental Engineering (University Malaya). Her areas of specialisation are in green technology, construction and building, material and historical mortar.
“There is a great misconception by our community in waste management. People dump waste anywhere, everywhere and whichever ways that suit them. There are proper ways of disposing solid waste and hence the
theme of the campaign is ‘Let’s Do It Right’,” she stressed, adding that response from the public was encouraging.
“We also managed to market UniKL MICET programmes as well. During the event, we received a few project collaboration opportunities and inquiries from exhibitors on training and Corporate Social Responsibility,” said Dr Nadia.
“As an institute of higher learning that offers Environmental Engineering Technology courses, UniKL MICET has shared information on academic activities, CSR and research achievements related to solid waste.”
