MAREA had a smooth and successful 1st AGM on Friday, 17th June 2022.

We are honoured to announce our collaboration between Malaysian Recycling Alliance (MAREA) and the Ministry of Housing and Local Government (KPKT) to conduct an Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) pilot study in Langkawi Island, officiated through an MoU signing ceremony this morning.

I’m proud to be celebrating MAREA’s first year anniversary. At MAREA, we’re committed to a shared vision of boosting collection and recycling rates in Malaysia – and have pledged to recycle 25% of our members’ packaging volumes by 2025.
