Hazard in rubbish bin

Domestic waste collection has increased slightly since the MCO came into force.

FACE masks are considered a must-have item due to Covid-19, but few realise that used masks are considered hazardous waste and must be disposed of properly.

Solid Waste Management and Public Cleansing Corporation (SWCorp) Federal Territories director Mohd Zahir Shari said the public should dispose of their used face masks in a hygienic manner instead of just throwing them into the bin with other rubbish.
