Malaysia Waste Characterization. The municipal solid waste (MSW) in Malaysia is made up of waste from s, commercial, institutes, landscape conservation, street cleansing, and industry construction and even tourist activities [14, 30, 32-33, 38]. Characteristics of MSW vary from city to city and season to season [8].


Municipal solid waste (MSW) disposal is one of the main issues towards sustainable development in Malaysia. Current practices for MSW disposal such as landfilling and incineration poses a serious problems on the environment and health. Therefore a significant efforts have been made to utilize MSW for energy source by employing gasification process.


the country's development. The Malaysian construction industry's waste constitute a large portion of solid waste every year in Malaysia (Begum. R.A. 2007).

Classification of Construction ...


In Malaysia, the absence of an integrated waste management system resulted with more than 10.40 million tonnes of municipal solid waste (MSW) being disposed off into landfills annually. This highlights the importance of landfills in MSW management in Malaysia. However, sustainable landfilling technology is yet to be achieved.


However, construction activities used in Malaysia is landfilling process but it also also generate waste that could threaten health and depends on the availability of land to reduce environment. Construction waste management is pollution and environmental impacts.


The huge generated amounts of construction and demolition (C&D) waste around the world, which amounts up to more than 25% of the total generated waste, has become a serious environmental challenge that needs to be addressed. This analytical review paper sheds light on the different adverse environmental impacts of the presently used conventional management …
