In preparation of the upcoming Hari Raya celebrations, Trienekens (Sarawak) Sdn. Bhd. today announced that the waste collection services for all areas under the jurisdiction of the Commission of the City of Kuching North (DBKU) with Friday collection schedule shall be carried out one day earlier on Thursday, 20 April 2023 including at some selected areas under the Council of the City of Kuching South (MBKS) and Padawan Municipal Council (MPP). There will be no collection on the first day of Hari Raya for the affected areas. Should the first day of Hari Raya falls on Saturday instead of Friday, areas with Saturday collection schedule will also be serviced one day earlier on Friday, 21 April 2023.
Trienekens’ Department Manager of Logistics Operations, Mason Barau, informed that the collection services are brought forward a day earlier during this period to ensure that the areas are serviced efficiently before the start of Hari Raya.
“Our teams will work on double shifts starting on 20 April (Thursday) as early as 12 a.m. to ensure that all waste in these areas is cleared in time for the festival. Therefore, we would like to remind the residents to push out their wheel bins early to prevent missed collection.
