At present, landfill seems to be the preferred solid waste management option for Malaysia, as waste infrastructure is still in its infancy.
Local authorities responsible for the management of solid waste are outsourcing the collection and disposal of solid waste to private companies.
This is where Alam Flora’s fully-owned subsidiary, Alam Flora Environmental Solutions (AFES) comes into play to offer environmental solutions with core business activities like Asset and Facilities Management (AFM), Infrastructure Cleansing, and Waste Solutions (ICWS), and Waste Management Facility (WMF).
The methods above are sustainable developments which harnesses technological development and advancements that support the global goals introduced by the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
As part of their efforts, AFES was appointed to operate the 100.2 acres landfill, Belenggu Halt, on February 2017 and the landfill became one of the best sanitary landfills owned by KPKT at that time.
After commencing operation in June 2017, the main tasks for the landfill are to treat wastewater that can be harmlessly discharged to the rivers and also receive waste from the Temerloh district area which covers 100 to 130 tonnes of wastes per day.
“We were also tasked to make it a running and working landfill for only six months after we were appointed there. AFES’s efforts made Belenggu Halt a level four sanitary landfill which is the highest level we achieved,” AFES Chief Operating Officer (COO), Nazar Abdul Raof tells BusinessToday.
