Following the recent IWK Selfie Wefie Contest 2015, it manages to create more awareness among Malaysians on their important task in the nation. That makes me wonder....have you ever thought where does your waste go?
Can't believe the amount of sludge we produce annually can go up to 5 million tonnes!
Imagine every part of the country needs IWK to clean an average 65 millions litres of sewage daily.
In Malaysia, an extensive use has been made of primary treatment systems such as communal septic tanks and imhoff tanks and unreliable low cost secondary systems such as oxidation ponds. In addition, large urban areas utilize Individual Septic Tanks (IST). It is estimated that there are over one million individual septic tanks in Malaysia to partially treat sewage.
So let's play our part responsibly too,
pay the bill promptly to help IWK to prevent raw sewage pollution!
