Around 50 residents in Papan near Batu Gajah, Ipoh, have lodged a police report against the dumping of garbage at a disposal site near their homes by contractors hired by the local council, Tamil Nesan and Makkal Osai reported.

The companies in charge of garbage collection in the Ipoh area began using the place as a disposal site in April 2012.

The new site was selected after residents near a previous landfill in Tambun district complained of foul smell and ill health, blaming the disposal site there as the cause of their sickness.
