Managing Solid Waste in Malaysia has become a challenging task especially in recent years due to rapid development, industrialisation, increase of population, and complexity in the types of waste being generated on daily basis. Adding to this problem, the number of landfill sites that are coming towards the end of its lifecycle are fast growing. Rapid development and industrialisation have also caused the price of land to increase significantly therefore the effort to develop new modern landfill sites become significantly expensive. On top of that, emerging type of waste such as e-waste is becoming new threats to the environment in Malaysia. Therefore new innovations in the approach towards managing solid waste are greatly needed. This paper is written to provide an analysis of how to address the issues by incorporating the present and future innovations related to solid waste management in Malaysia.
