KDEB Waste Management To Build 3 Additional Material Recycling Centre

Selangor state-owned waste management company, KDEB Waste Management said it will construct three additional material recycling centre (MRF) facilities throughout this year.

Its managing director Datuk Ramli Mohd Tahir said the MRFs will be situated in the districts of Kuala Langat, Hulu Selangor, and Selayang, bringing the total number of MRFs in Selangor to six.

“Three recycling centres are already in operation, and we are aiming to open three more this year. The three currently operating in Klang, Subang Jaya, and Cyberjaya,” he said.

He added that MRFs are also capable of processing recycled goods and manufacturing new products.

“For the time being, we are working with three related companies that have the technology to transform plastic waste into biodiesel,” Ramli said.

He also called upon the public to diligently separate their waste at home into different categories, as well as to avoid using plastic bags.

“I am of the opinion that everyone, be it a child, an adult, and so on, has yet to take waste generation seriously enough. In the span of a year, Malaysians use an estimated one billion non-biodegradable plastic bags,” Ramli said.

Prior to this, state executive councillor for local Government Ng Sze Han said the state government is identifying suitable areas in each local authority, which can be used for centres.
