Daily food waste staggering


PETALING JAYA: Every day, Malaysians produce enough food waste to fill seven Olympic-sized swimming pools, according to the Solid Waste Management and Public Cleansing Corporation (SWCorp).

This means that out of the 38,000 tonnes of domestic waste daily, 45% – or 17,000 tonnes – are food waste, out of which around 4,080 tonnes are still edible.
