Waste Collection Services Affected

Trienekens (Sarawak) Sdn Bhd announced today that a team member from the company’s Kuching Logistics & Services Division has tested positive for COVID-19. The said employee, who last worked on 29 May 2021, was informed by the authorities that he was positive on 1 June 2021.

As the health, safety and well-being of the company’s customers, associates and employees are its top priority, the following measures have been enforced immediately, in accordance with the guidelines from the relevant authorities:

  • The Kuching Logistics & Services office was immediately closed for disinfection.
  • All vehicles and receptacles have also been disinfected.
  • All colleagues who were in close contact with the affected team member have been identified (to the authorities) and were immediately isolated and quarantined pending swab testing.

Trienekens has in place, additional precautionary measures for the best interest of its team members and associates:

  • Offices and facilities, as well as vehicles and receptacles are disinfected every week.
  • Employees are provided with PPE and sanitisers.
  • Hazardous waste operations and Municipal waste operations are managed separately, with work rotation teams to ensure no cross contamination.

Following quarantine orders related to the positive case, as well as movement restrictions in living areas affecting more than 15 operation employees, waste collection services of certain areas under Trienekens’ service municipalities will be affected for the next two weeks due to consequent manpower issues faced by the company.

Trienekens is seeking the public’s cooperation and understanding during this period, advising them to contact Trienekens for more information or assistance. The company hopes that the public would be patient, ensuring them that though waste collection may be delayed, they would work tirelessly to quickly address the issues.
