Malaysia will achieve its vision of 2020 as a country that continues to develop at rapid speed. One of the major problems that our country will have to eventually face is disposing with the mounting solid wastes. As stated in Sustainable Solid Waste Management in the 9th Malaysia, priority will be the reduction, reuse and recycling of waste as well as greater use of environmental-friendly materials. Legislation to streamline solid waste management will be enacted to facilitate the implementation of the strategies and measures in National Strategic Plan.
