Malaysians will recycle if it is more convenient to do so
Despite being exposed to the importance of waste management and the 3R (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle),about only 9% of Malaysian households practice recycling as of 2012. In particular, household E-waste will be a rising trend over the next decade and early measures should be taken before it becomes difficult to manage in the near future. Malaysians face challenges in practicing sustainability due to the difficulty and inconvenience of doing so. However, it is also the matter of Malaysian’s heightening the importance of sustainability, as a large number of households said that they ‘do not see the need’ to practice the 3R.
