SWM ENVIRONMENT SDN BHD (SWM Environment) was awarded the concession for the management of solid waste and public cleansing in the southern region states of Johor, Malacca and Negeri Sembilan by the Government of Malaysia

As one of the concessionaires in Malaysia, SWM Environment provides comprehensive, organised, cost-effective and integrated waste management through innovative technology and environmentally-friendly systems to enhance the quality of its service.

SWM Environment, through its workforce of 12,000 people, supports 27 local authorities in servicing 1.5 million residential and commercial premises with over 5 million people covering 28,500 square kilometres.

SWM Environment operates and maintains a fleet of more than 1000 vehicles to ensure that the services are carried out on schedule.

To reduce waste ending up at landfills, SWM Environment actively promotes high-impact environmental programmes to increase awareness in effective separation of waste as well as recycling, food waste composting, and civic consciousness in appropriate disposal of wastes.

Under its 3R (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) banner, SWM Environment carries out public education on the importance of recycling, proper recycling methods as well informing how and where they can recycle; through talks and exhibitions held at schools, town halls, malls, office blocks and other public areas.

In 2018, SWM Environment launched its own incentive-based programme for recycling across the three southern states in Malaysia. Aptly named KITARecycle, the programme encourages the public to recycle by rewarding them with Recycling Points (RP) for 25 types of recyclable items which include paper, aluminium cans, plastics and e-waste. The collected RP could be redeemed for goods or cashed out via e-wallets.
