Sg Sedu Landfill

 Unmanaged lechate collection just outside the landfill site. A nasty, black colored and strong smell leachate has very low dissolved oxygen(DO). The leachate was seen flow out of the landfill into the man-made pond.

Sg. Sabai Landfill

 Sg Sabai Level O Landfill is located in Hulu Selangor. The site is not properly managed, the waste is exposed to rainfall. The leachate was clearly observed on site and it flows into the water logged area which is just a few meters from the site. This is a good example of NIMBY syndrome...Not In My Backyard. But it is ok In Someone Else Backyard (ISEBY).
