In order to set up a strong waste management system, the Ministry of Housing and Local Government ( KPKT) is reviewing a plan to appoint contractors for beach clean-up on six islands around Langkawi.

The change was necessary, says its deputy minister Datuk Seri Dr Ismail Abd Muttalib, to ensure every visitor is happy in the six islands which are frequently visited by tourists.

"The six islands are Pulau Beras Basah, Pulau Anak Tikus, Pulau Teluk Dalam, Pulau Teluk Mempelam, Pulau Gua Cerita and Pulau Pasir Panjang.

"So far, the six islands are not included in the cleaning concession but there are volunteers, non-governmental organizations, and private companies that have come forward to carry out clean-up works," he said.
