Recycling plastic can boost the Malaysian economy

Recycling plastic can boost the Malaysian economy

Hakim Hassan

If you’re on the fence whether you should go into recycling, even though the Earth kinda needs you to be a bit mindful of the environment, here is an incentive.

Recently, the Malaysian Plastics Manufacturers Association (MPMA) and the Malaysian Plastics Recyclers Association (MPRA) stated that plastics recyclers could potentially grow their contribution to the country’s economy by three to four times, to an estimated RM15 billion to RM20 billion annually.

They said could be achieved with increased investments in better technology, infrastructure and upgraded capacity.

We’ve sent back trash from other countries back to their homeland because we don’t want anything to do with it, how about if we also take a step further and improve the recycling system of our own?
