Tackling the rising amount of trash


Currently, there are 141 solid waste landfills in Malaysia. This open landfill at Bercham has been replaced by a new modern landfill in Papan.

MALAYSIANS generate about 38,699 tonnes of solid waste every day – at least 1.17kg per person.

While Malaysia has many landfills, the number is still not enough accommodate the large amount of trash generated, says the Housing and Local Government Ministry.
