Around 30,000 million tonnes of wastes are created every day by Malaysian. As estimation, more wastes will be created around 35,000 million tonnes. “Malaysians produce an average of 35,335 tons of waste every day (2016). Only 5 percent of it is recycled.These two statistics were recently revealed by the national Ministry of Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government.Over the 16 years from 2003 to 2013, the generation of municipal solid waste (MSW) in Malaysia increased more than 91 percent. Combine this with a metropolitan culture that loves to buy and toss – and an infamously poor public understanding of resource conservation and recycling. Due to unseparated waste, more than 30% potentially recyclable materials such as paper, plastic, aluminum, glass are still directly disposed in landfills
