THE government will ban import of all non-recyclable solid waste, particularly plastic, says Yeo Bee Yin.

The Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change Minister said the measures were taken to ensure the country’s solid waste was well managed and to reduce plastic pollution, as well as ensuring Malaysia was not a dumping ground for waste from developed countries.
