The Penang State Government has come out with a new campaign to reduce wastage in the state of Penang. Necessary measures will be taken to make sure each citizen plays their part in keeping Penang clean and waste-free. If a household fails to do so, they will be fined RM250 each. This will be carried out by Ops Kawal Selia Pengasingan Sisa who will check bins for discarded waste.
