A Taste for Waste

Seberang Perai is going very green, thanks to public-private partnerships and passionate communities.

It’s no secret that the Seberang Perai Municipal Council (MPSP) has stepped up its greening efforts. Helming the Ecocommunity Unit at MPSP is Chew Eng Seng, an avid environmentalist who has initiated and overseen many green projects and training for schools, communities, industries and individuals.

Among Chew’s projects are the recycling projects in Taman Pandan in the north, and upcycling projects in Kampung Permatang Nibong in the central district. Both projects are generously supported by Gary Teoh and his wife, Bee Lee, who founded Auto-City in Juru.

Thirteen years ago, Auto-City began as a one-stop banking, retail and F&B development.
