Welcome to SWM Environment Sdn Bhd Bulletin Website
SWM ENVIRONMENT SDN. BHD. (SWM), formerly known as Southern Waste Management Sdn Bhd was established in line with the Malaysian Government's decision on the National Privatization of Solid Waste Management. It was subsequently awarded the task of managing the storage, collection, transfer, haulage, intermediate processing and disposal of solid waste in the Southern Region of Peninsular Malaysia 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 (Johor, Melaka and Negeri Sembilan) 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. The concession will cover a period of 20 years and serve a population of 4 million people.
