Now, we have to watch what we eat/drink because, we will need to pay each time we pay homage to our Royal Throne at home or work or play.
Energy, Water and Communications Minister Datuk Shaziman Abu Mansor said that his ministry was at the early stages of looking into a “Green Tariff” which would require consumers to pay for wastage they incur.
“The Green Tariff is a volumetric-based tariff that combines the tariff for water and waste water into a single holistic tariff.“Whatever water is used, it almost entirely ends up as waste as well. It’s still at a very early stage. We are still studying the issue,” he told the press after launching the Fifth National Utilities Summit here yesterday.
“We are looking to see what would be a fair way of charging consumers, meaning you pay for what you use.
“It will not be a flat rate system,” he said.
OMG!! That means that if my entire family has diarrhea a particular week and assuming that we have to visit the bathroom > 10 times per pax.... I will be screwed for that month's bill...
BTW, aren't we all paying $$$ to Indah Water already? Why another tariff?
I have a strange feeling that some genius out there will start another "night service" like those in the good 'ol days of people collecting your waste at night. So, you might hear lorries with people yelling "URINE LAMA, KENCING LAMA.."
LOL!!! Gosh, I usually write nonsense stuff on Fridays... I'm two days early. ;-)
