Household Waste Separation Policy
Got your bins ready? The waste separation ruling will be implemented starting on 1 September (next Tuesday) in Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, Pahang, Johor, Melaka, Negeri Sembilan, Perlis and Kedah.
The rubbish will be collected based on a 2+1 schedule with special “split” collection vehicles, where the collection of residual waste will be twice a week while another collection will be dedicated for the recyclable materials.
Find out more about the policy and how to effectively separate your household waste from our Waste Separation Guide infographic and article! 🙂
