Are Malaysians Ready to Use Recycling Bins?

The launch of new industrial recycling bins signal new era of recycling for businesses and industries.

July 18, 2016. Announcing the launch of new industrial recycling bins which will start a new era in waste recycling and disposal in Malaysia. iMEC, a Malaysia – based company has developed completely new hygiene and recycling products that will improve waste disposal in many industries and businesses in the country.

The iMECRecycle Bin is a trash bin that is made from strong and environmentally-friendly materials. The bin is available in a variety of sizes starting from 27 liters to 57 liters and comes in grey, blue, orange and brown which allows color coding of trash receptacles in any office or factory. These are sold through iMEC’s official website:

The iMEC Recycle Bin will be able to reduce waste, reuse items that can still be used and recycle by segregating waste into different categories. Using smart trash bins will also reduce pollution and dangerous CO2 emissions and will also reduce cost and energy in the long run. These waste bins may also be used at home.

A few words from Datuk Halimah Mohamed Sadique, Deputy Minister of Malaysia’s Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government about the country’s recent stance on recycling and waste disposal: “On July 1, we will begin distributing pamphlets on the matter and by September 1, reminders will be issued on households which still do not comply with the regulation.”
