Sampah perlu diasingkan mulai 1 September

Sistem pengasingan sampah mengikut jenis dan kategori bahan buangan akan dikuatkuasakan mulai 1 September ini, ekoran penswastaan sepenuhnya perkhidmatan pengurusan sisa pepejal dan pembersihan.

Menteri Perumahan dan Kerajaan Tempatan, Datuk Chor Chee Heung berkata, pengasingan itu terbahagi kepada sisa pepejal, organik dan bahan buangan yang boleh dikitar semula.

"Sistem ini akan dilakukan secara berperingkat-peringkat dalam masa dua tahun selepas dikuatkuasakan September ini supaya orang ramai boleh membiasakan diri dengannya.

"Selepas dua tahun, denda akan dikenakan kepada mereka yang tidak mengasingkan bahan buangan mengikut kategori," katanya pada sidang akhbar selepas majlis pelancaran Transformasi Perkhidmatan SWM Environment Sdn. Bhd. Ke Arah Kecemerlangan di Pusat Konvensyen Danga Bay.

Langkah itu dilakukan selepas Akta Pengurusan Sisa Pepejal dan Pembersihan Awam 2007 diluluskan bagi memastikan pengurusan sisa pepejal dan pembersihan awam diurus dengan teratur, bersepadu dan sistematik.

Berikutan penguatkuasaan akta tersebut, tiga syarikat konsesi dilantik iaitu SWM Environment Sdn. Bhd. yang akan mengendalikan pengurusan sisa pepejal di Johor, Melaka dan Negeri Sembilan.

Alam Flora Sdn. Bhd. pula mengendalikan sisa pepejal di Pahang, Kelantan dan Terengganu; E-Idaman Sdn. Bhd. di Perlis dan Kedah manakala di Perak, Selangor dan Pulau Pinang diuruskan pihak berkuasa tempatan (PBT) masing-masing.

Chee Heung berkata, melalui sistem itu masyarakat akan dididik secara beransur-ansur untuk mengasingkan sisa pepejal bagi mengurangkan kuantiti sisa tersebut yang perlu dikendalikan dan dilupuskan di tapak-tapak pelupusan.

"Bagi membolehkan kutipan sampah dilakukan dengan lebih teratur, tong sampah berpenutup, beroda dan mesra alam akan diedarkan syarikat-syarikat konsesi terbabit," katanya.

Menurutnya, syarikat itu akan mengutip bahan buangan mengikut kategori, contohnya bahan buangan yang boleh dikitar semula seperti tin, plastik dan surat khabar lama dua kali seminggu mengikut hari tertentu.

Menurut beliau, sekiranya syarikat yang dilantik tidak mematuhi syarat dan perjanjian selepas diberikan amaran, kerajaan akan menamatkan kontrak mereka.

Penswastaan tersebut katanya, tidak melibatkan caj tambahan sebaliknya akan diserapkan ke dalam taksiran cukai PBT.

The Scuba Rangers Philosophy

The Scuba Rangers Philosophy

As a children’s outreach organization, Scuba Rangers has the responsibility to promote good values. To keep it simple and fun, we’ve designed a Scuba Rangers star, which defines the 5 points of a successful Scuba Ranger:

Proper Knowledge: Rangers must learn the rules of responsible diving.
Proper Skills: Rangers must learn and practice the basic scuba skills.
Proper Equipment: Rangers must learn to use basic scuba equipment, and will have to own snorkeling equipment, while learning to properly care for the equipment.
Proper Experience: Rangers should maintain diving proficiency, dive within their limits, and continue to learn more about scuba and water exploration.
Responsibility: Rangers should honor their responsibilities to their families, their community, the environment and themselves.
Try our Cuba Skuba Program a try out scuba for kids 8-12 years old at PJ Palms swimming pool every Sunday. Email for bookings. More info here www.waterkids.infoBooking is essential

Scuba Rangers quality statement

Dear parents, 

Your son or daughter might have shown you this webpage enthusiastically, but you might still have some questions and reservations. That is why it would be my pleasure to tell you more about the SCUBA RANGERS  Program. 

SCUBA RANGERS is the children´s program of SSI- SCUBA SCHOOLS INTERNATIONAL and a program which was especially designed for children between the age of 8 and 12 years old. Until recently, younger children did not have the opportunity to be involved in a diving activity. But now, with this program, they can! However, this is only possible in a swimming pool and under professional supervision.
For more than 35 years SSI is known in the diving industry for providing high quality education and outstanding training materials for divers and snorklers of all levels. 

SSI Instructors are only allowed to teach when being affiliated with an SSI Facility. This concept is unique in the industry and allows direct monitoring of all active SSI Dive Leaders to make sure that high quality education within the standards is provided. 

SSI Instructors teach with proven methods using innovative training techniques so that students will enjoy the learning experience. Learning skills becomes easy and fun. 

The instructors that will eventually educate your child in the swimming pool, are excellent divers who are already experienced in teaching or guiding new divers and they have taken a special training in how to teach diving to children. Furthermore, they have been fully-screened and they had to submit a certificate of good character. So you don’t need to worry about that. During the sessions and club activities, safety always comes first. That is why there will be sufficient professional supervision in relation to the number of participating children all the time.

During the activities, the children are engaged in diving, but at the same time the activities are designed to develop their social skills as well, not only by doing stuff together with other children, but also by supporting each other. And at the same time, we try to develop the children’s environmental awareness. 

There are all kinds of SCUBA RANGERS education materials in different languages available, which, of course, has been especially developed for children. For example, there is a manual and an exercise book, a video, a logbook, diploma’s, etc. This supporting material is used during the sessions and activities.

The SCUBA RANGERS Program is not a diving course. Children learn in a playful but safe way to be involved in diving. It is not until they reach the age of 12 that it is possible to participate in a diving education program with one of the diving education organisations.

I hope I have been able to take away any doubts you might have had. I would like to invite you to come and have a look at a SCUBA RANGERS Club. That will give you a good impression of what we do, and how we do it. Because if you entrust us with your child, you want to be sure that it is all right!


PS: And perhaps you will get excited yourself about diving in! Unfortunately, you are (just) too old to become a member of the SCUBA RANGERS Club, but we are more than happy to give you information about your personal possibilities in becoming a diver instead with SSI.
