Waste collector doing his rounds with daughter given warning for malpractice after video goes viral

Clarence Ting

SIBU, Sept 21: A seven-second video of a young girl accompanying her father going about his work doing waste collection around the town has riled up the public.

The video, which was supposedly taken at Jalan Teku on Sunday, showed the young girl helping her father to load the large waste container onto the rear of the truck by pressing a switch.

Sibu Municipal Council chairman Clarence Ting responded by saying that they had managed to track down the driver with the help of its public health section.


“It’s confirmed that the driver of the truck brought his daughter along on this occasion. Verbal warning has been given to the contractor not to repeat this malpractice. The warning will be followed by a written one,” he said.

Ting said the council will monitor the matter so that it would not be repeated.

“I wish to thank the public for highlighting this violation,” he said. — DayakDaily
