Urban waste management proves to be a challenge for all developing cities globally.
There is no exception in Malaysia. Solid waste generated are disposed, at times discriminately without any consideration of resource wastage and environmental damages.
Overfilled dumping grounds with limited control of air emissions, heavy metal contamination of soil, polluted rivers are common and huge public health and environmental concern.
Eco-Ideal is mooting on an idea to create an ecological ideal urban centre where all “waste” can be creatively transformed into useful resources. A one-stop centre with elements of public participation, education and skills creation, jobs and social cohesion will no doubt contribute to a sustainable urban development in cities.
Imagine a fun place, where talents will contribute to upcycling of “waste”, food waste can be transformed back to food, knowledge and skills to improve resource efficiency will be enhanced – this is the ECO IDEAL CENTRE we are talking about. Stay tune!
