It has been two months since I have last posted. As some of my loyal readers know, Chinese New Year (
CNY) shopping tour always takes up all my
time. Well now that CNY shopping season is over, I am back! As promise in my previous
post, a quick write up on Pulau Semakau Landfill.
Pulau Semakau Landfill is an offshore landfill using a membrane to carve out a section of the sea using Pulau Semakau as anchor. The landfill is separated into two phase and phase one is rapidly being filled up with ashes from waste incinerators in
. The landfill is planned to last till
2045 and there seem to be no official words on the plan afterwards. So
please practice the 3 R - Reuse, Recycle and Reduce wastage if
Currently, through application, the public is allowed to visit the island for educational purpose, tracking along the tide lines and for star gazing.
I have attended an educational trip that show us the video on the life cycle of waste and the construction of Pulau Semakau at their visitor center, follow by a visit to the waste receiving center (Since it is all ash, there is very little or no smell at all) and a tour around the different part of the island using a mini-bus.
As the Pulau Semakau is not easily accessible, I will classify it under random places I havebeen.
