You are the secretary of the residents' committee in Taman Panglima. You have received many complaints from residents about uncollected garbage. Write a letter to the Kuala Lumpur City Council to complain about the matter.
 
Dear Sir,

Uncollected Garbage in Taman Panglima

On behalf of the residents of Taman Panglima, I am writing to complain about the garbage that has not been collected in the area for the past two months. This has caused many problems.

Previously, garbage was collected three times a week. Two months ago, the garbage truck stopped coming. Residents were not informed about this. The garbage began to pile up and stink. The stench is unbearable and embarrassing. Many of us have stopped inviting friends to our homes. We feel as if we are living in a rubbish dump!

Needless to say, the piles of rotting garbage have attracted stray dogs, cats and rats. This compounds the situation as they scatter the rubbish over a wider area. Besides, we have noticed an increase in mosquitoes and flies over the past two months. At least three of the residents of Taman Panglima have fallen victim to Dengue Fever. We know that the piles of uncollected garbage are an excellent breeding ground for mosquitoes.

Recently, some residents decided to burn their garbage. However, this is not a satisfactory solution. It is both unpleasant and a temporary measure. It makes the air smoky and causes air pollution. The young, elderly and those suffering from asthma feel very uncomfortable when the air is smoky, and almost every evening now, the air is filled with smoke from burning rubbish. Many have stopped going for evening walks because the air is too polluted.

Last weekend, we organized a community clean-up. We are pleased to say the area now looks much cleaner. However, we have not been able to remove the garbage and it is now in one huge pile in the corner of Taman Panglima. It will remain an embarrassing eyesore until garbage collection is resumed in this area.

We know what we have done is only a short-term measure. Soon each household will produce more rubbish and the problem will continue. We hope you will be able to get the garbage collectors to resume collecting rubbish in Taman Panglima. Even if they cannot come every day, we would be most grateful if they could do it at least three times a week. We look forward to seeing this happen soon.

Thank you

Yours faithfully,
