Welcome to SWM Environment Sdn Bhd Bulletin Website
SWM Environment Sdn Bhd (SWM) is an integrated solid waste management and public cleansing service provider in the southern region of Peninsular Malaysia.
SWM (formerly known as Southern Waste Management) was established in line with the Malaysian Government's decision on the National Privatization of Solid Waste Management. SWM was awarded the task of managing the storage, collection, transfer, haulage, intermediate processing and disposal of solid waste in Johor, Melaka and Negeri Sembilan by the Economic Planning Unit of the Prime Minister's Department on December 21, 1995.
In April 1996, SWM was directed by the Government of Malaysia to take over the solid waste management and public cleansing services from all Local Authorities within the SWM concession area on an interim basis. SWM had progressively since 1997 taken over the management of solid waste and public cleansing from all the Local Authorities within its concession area. It is a transition toward the implementation of the full privatization.
SWM services over 5.1 million people and manages between 4500-5000 tonnes of waste daily across a geographical region of 27,560 sq. km. With the strength of over 7500 staff, we support 27 local authorities, manage 21 disposal facilities and operate 25 workshops as well as depots.
