Most of the solid waste disposal sites in Malaysia are either open dumps or controlled tipping. The pollution levels from these sites are expected to be high especially the contamination of soil, air, surface and underground water. All these pollutions have direct and indirect links to human being. The risks associated with solid waste disposal sites involved three compartments or media, i.e. the atmosphere, water and soil.
