KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysians should embrace the segregation of waste at home given that each of them generated an average of 1.17kg each day last year.

According to the Solid Waste Management and Public Cleansing Corporation (SWCorp), this figure is nearly double that of 2005, when the per capita generation was around 0.8kg per person per day.
