Solid Waste Management Practice, Handling and Planning in the Construction Industry


The building sector contributes significantly to the national economy. Inadequate construction waste management leads to a variety of problems, including illegal dumping along roadsides, demolition rubbish, and landfill disposal of building waste. Malaysia is facing a significant shortage of landfill space, which has lately exacerbated across the country, providing a huge resource and environmental problem for the government. Solid waste management is one of the major environmental issues that most governments have been concerned about for a long time. Rapid urbanisation and industrialisation modified the types of solid waste created. The efficiency of trash separation and the impacts of the waste management system by the municipal leader in the city are determined by citizen awareness.
