RM10K reward for info on illegal waste dumping

SEREMBAN (BERNAMA) – The Negeri Sembilan government is offering a RM10,000 reward for information which results in the arrest of anyone involved in illegal dumping of chemical waste, said Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Aminuddin Harun.

He said this was part of efforts to check illegal dumping of waste, which affected Sungai Anak Air Garam and a tributary of Sungai Belihoi last year.

“The government is offering a RM10,000 incentive to anyone who provides information leading to the arrest of those involved in dumping chemical waste in river and pond areas,” he told reporters after officiating the Negeri Sembilan state government gathering yesterday.

He said the state government spent about RM300,000 to clean up the chemical waste which flowed into Sungai Anak Air Garam and the Sungai Belihoi tributary although the incidents did not cause pollution of catchment areas.
