Integrated Solid Waste Management Study
Sarawak, East Malaysia
The study, covering the entire State of Sarawak, established a comprehensive solid waste baseline and developed new policy and strategy plans for future solid waste management.
There are around 45 dumpsites in Sarawak which are managed without proper planning and engineering consideration. These dumpsites are managed as “open dumps” without containment and odour control, water retention areas and perimeter drainage, gas collection system, or leachate collection and treatment. They are hazardous to public health and the environment, and these sites are required to be either closed, upgraded or rehabilitated.
A baseline study was conducted to review the existing solid waste management, legal and institutional framework, financial constraint (revenues and expenditures) faced by the local authorities; to analyse and develop strategic solid waste management plan(s) as well as to prioritise the plan(s) according to the urgency of need for treatment of local authorities.
A comprehensive solid waste management baseline profile and an integrated solid waste management master plan were developed.
