KOTA KINABALU: More eateries are joining the ‘litter-free’ bandwagon as City Hall (DBKK) pushes for a cleaner and better city.

This time, 12 outlets from Secret Recipe, Beyond Veggie to Souled Out premises have been recognized as litter free restaurants.

Mayor Datuk Yeo Boon Hai said the recognition was in line with his vision of making Kota Kinabalu a clean, green and comfortable city to live.

“This also means that all employees in restaurants and kiosks, and their customers, will discard their rubbish into bins provided and keep their environment clean at all times,” he said in his speech delivered by DBKK deputy director of operations Noorliza Awang Alip.

According to him, Secret Recipe, Beyond Veggie, Souled Out and two kiosks of Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tart in Sabah are among the 173 premises that have been recognized by DBKK.

“I would like to congratulate AJ Ashley Sdn Bhd and AJ Ashton Sdn Bhd which is the management of restaurants and kiosks involved in today’s recognition,” he said in his speech.

He also pointed out that the recognition can be withdrawn if the rules are broken.

“I want the management to ensure that the surrounding area is free of wastes at all the times,” he said.

He also called on citizens to bring along eco bags as an alternative to plastic bags in accordance with the motto of DBKK in promoting community participation in the reduced use of plastic bags.

At the same time, Yeo also called on other restaurants to take the lead from litter-free food outlets and to participate in DBKK’s anti-litter campaign.

The campaign is one of the strategies to address the city’s sanitary problems to reduce the problem of cockroaches, flies, rats and even trenches due to bad waste management, he added.

Also present was management director of AJ Ashley, Janet Lee Poh Chee and management director of AJ Ashton, Tony Low.
