Illegal Rubbish Dump Burning

A bad habit of Malaysian is littering. When economic growth surpasses humanity advancement, we will encounter social corruptions & environmental damages. People over consuming resources & putting a large portion of it for unnecessary purposes, or in other word is just wasting. Many things, especially packaging materials, are just become rubbish after being used only once. And that's why we find so many illegal rubbish dumps appear in the city nowadays. The worst scenario is seen in this photo where rubbish dump is burning openly causing serious air pollution & releasing harmful gas to the environment. The worrying fact is not only the failure of local authorities & government to clear the rubbish, but the neglectful attitude & low awareness of people on environment & resources preservation.


  1. Hi Chun Kee,

    This is one of the scenes in Malaysia which I hated the most. It shows the ugliness of the people and the authorities, both to be blamed equally. One for ignorance and the other for laziness.

  2. Yes Ipohgal. And this is shameful to Ipoh which was once the cleanest city in Malaysia.
