Malaysia is still being used as a dumping ground and transit point for scheduled electronic waste or e-waste from developed countries. Just last year, the authorities sent back 19 containers containing such waste to their countries of origin.

Developed countries are sneakily sending e-waste to Malaysia

All 19 containers that attempted to smuggle this waste into the country were returned to their countries of origin, which included the United States, Spain, Australia, Belgium, and Japan. The Minister of Natural Resources, Environment, and Climate Change, Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad, stated that this was part of a total of 59 containers seized by the Selangor Department of Environment (DOE) in cooperation with the Royal Malaysian Customs Department (JKDM). 

Nik Nazmi said that they are committed to ensuring that Malaysia is not used as a transit or disposal site for e-waste from developed countries, in accordance with the Basel Convention. He also outlined the strict procedures and criteria for importing e-waste.
