PETALING JAYA, 5 Jun (Bernama) -- Majlis Bandaraya Petaling Jaya (MBPJ) akan

merangka projek rintis penyediaan mesin kompos kitar sisa makanan di kompleks

gerai makan bagi mengurangkan pembuangan sisa pepejal ke pusat pelupusan sampah.

Pengarah Jabatan Kesihatan Persekitaran MBPJ Dr Chithradavi N. Vadivellu

berkata pihaknya akan memilih sebuah kompleks gerai makan di bandar ini sebagai

perintis kepada projek berkenaan.

Beliau berkata projek itu bertujuan mendidik pengusaha dan penduduk sekitar

untuk tidak membazir makanan sekali gus mengetahui cara menguruskan sisa pepejal

serta tidak membuang sampah, terutama sisa makanan, di merata tempat.

"Dengan kaedah ini, pengusaha atau pelanggan di kompleks gerai makan boleh

membuang sisa bahan makanan berasaskan organik ke dalam mesin kompos tersebut.

"Ia adalah langkah mencapai sasaran sisa buangan sifar di pusat pelupusan

sampah. Itu antara ideanya, dan ia masih dalam kajian," katanya selepas

merasmikan Sambutan Hari Alam Sekitar Sedunia bertema ''Fikir, Makan, Jimat''

peringkat daerah Petaling Jaya anjuran Yayasan Pulau Banding dan Yayasan Emkay

di sini hari ini.

MBPJ-MESIN 2 (AKHIR) KUALA LUMPUR

Chithradavi berkata setakat ini, penduduk Petaling Jaya dianggarkan membuang

sebanyak 8,000 hingga 9,000 tan sisa makanan sebulan, tidak termasuk yang

dibuang di tempat pelupusan tidak sah.

Dalam pada itu, beliau berkata tema sambutan Hari Alam Sekitar tahun ini

jelas memberi peringatan serta menggalakkan semua pihak untuk lebih prihatin

berhubung kesan alam sekitar hasil daripada pengeluaran dan pembaziran makanan

yang berlebihan.

Menurut Pertubuhan Makanan dan Pertanian Bangsa-Bangsa Bersatu (FAO), setiap

tahun, sebanyak 1.3 bilion tan makanan dibazirkan dan jumlah itu adalah sama

dengan yang dihasilkan keseluruhan sub-sahara dan Afrika.

"Pembaziran makanan adalah punca pengurangan sumber asli yang utama dan

menyumbang kesan negatif terhadap alam sekitar," katanya.

Sementara itu, Pengerusi Lembaga Pemegang Amanah Yayasan Pulau Banding

Profesor Emeritus Datuk Dr Abdul Latiff Mohamad berkata kanak-kanak dan remaja

perlu melibatkan diri dengan pelbagai program mengenali serta mencintai alam

sekitar kerana mereka adalah generasi penentu kelestarian alam sekitar pada masa

akan datang.

"Anjakan paradigma berlaku hanya apabila generasi muda yang bakal menjadi

pemimpin di masa hadapan prihatin mengenai isu alam sekitar," katanya.
