We can find these orange collection boxes at many residential areas all over the Klang Valley in Malaysia. To me they are a welcome sight. When I shifted to my new house, there were so many off stuff and unwanted items accumulated over the years, it could fill up the whole dining room of my new house. Alam Flora will not collect my excess waste. Luckily, I found this telephone number and a telephone call and an appointment, my burdens were gone in 2 truckloads! Even until today, I have less headache about where to send my recyclables. I do a good deed and I can also contribute to a greener environment.
Pertubuhan Amal Seri Sinar or Seri Sinar Charity Organisation is a non-profit organisation founded in 2003 by Datuk Eadon Ching. He set up the organisation with the aim of raising funds for charity by collecting and selling recyclables. The money raised had benefited orphanages, poor students, underpriviledge children, the sick and disabled, single mothers, old folks home and indigenous people (orang asli).
Seri Sinar accepts all kinds of recyclables. For the pick ups of bulky items and locations of their recycling boxes and mobile collection centres, the contact is as follows:
