A 4095 meter tall mountain

Mount Kinabalu is the tallest mountain in Malaysia and the 20th tallest in the World. Mainly because of the biological diversity the mountain is listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site. Climbing the mountain is not an easy feat for the untrained; though it will absolutely be one of the best experiences ever. Watching the sun rise in the early morning will definitely make you forget all the hardships you had to endure during the hike up.

Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park

Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park

TAR Marine Park is the perfect place to enjoy scuba diving, snorkeling and light jungle treks. The marine park is made up of five small islands: Gaya, Manukan, Sapi, Sulug and Mamutik. The best beaches and probably also the best corals can be found around Gaya island; the biggest of the five islands. The marine park is only a 20 minute boat trip away from the city of Kota Kinabalu.

Mulu National Park

Recycling centers in Kuala Lumpur

While recycling is very common in Europe, it is not that popular yet in many other places in the world. It is good to recycle, because it reduces waste piles and besides; things you do not like anymore could still be of value to others right?

For example, within the expat community areas there is the Damansara recycling center:

  • Recycling Center at Damansara Jaya, PJ
  • Open: every Sunday for 2 hours, 10am – 12 pm
  • Location: Jln. SS22/47, SL 47400, Damansara Jaya (behind Sekolah Kebangsaan Damansara Jaya 1)
  • 3° 7′ 21.828″ N, 101° 36′ 59.2524″ E

There is also a recycle center at Ikano Power Center, Mutiara Damansara, Petaling Jaya

    Ikano Power Center – now rebranded to IPC – has launched its ‘new’ Recycle Center. I think it is very good that they promote this so clearly visible on their website (mainpage).

    They accept the following items: Newspapers, Books & Magazines, Cardboards, Tins/Metal Cans, Aluminium Cans and Plastic Bottles.

    Operating Hours: 10am – 6pm daily
    Location: Loading Bay (behind the centre)
    Check out their website here.

    To make the recycling easy, Recycle & Reward collects recyclables in front of your doorstep. With a click away your recyclables are gone without need to move around, dirtying cars or finding a recycling centre nearby. Each pick-up earns you Green Points which you can redeem for nice products.

    Link to their website: http://recycleandreward.my

        My Bahasa isn’t that great…you mean that they seem to be out of business? Perhaps they are in over their heads (which would be a good signal)? :)

          i’m not sure whether they are out of business or not. that’s the problem. they didn’t post any announcement on their website (by the way, ‘tempat pelupusan sampah’ means a dumpster haha…

      Don’t bother with Recycle & Reward! I have been their member for the past 2.5 years and the service is really terrible. Don’t pick up calls, don’t collect on the set date – totally ignore your request. We were even asked to pay RM50 for the pick ups! Totally not worh it! My suggestion is try else where to avoid the furstration.

        Absolutely agree! They’re very disorganised and now, they have the cheek to tell me that they will only collect non-alcoholic glass bottles… WTF!!! They are totally unprofessional!

          Recycle and Reward underwent management changes ie they were bought over by another company. i finally managed to redeem my long outstanding vouchers phew! That was in the middle of 2013
          They came to my place to collect the recyclable items some time during 3rd quarter. Now I have a batch of recyclables for collection and haven’t been able to contact them – phone disconnected and website is no longer in service.
          Me thinks that they have finally closed down

            Yea I couldn’t get hold of them either. They’re really unprofessional and service isn’t all that good. I heard that they’ve gone bust, cited financial problems and have closed down the business apparently. I was a member for a year and have not redeemed any points yet, there goes my green points – they were worth about RM100 too! :(

      I do not think glass is being recycled in Malaysia. We always threw it away in our regular garbage bags. We did recycle paper and plastics..but not glass…perhaps this will change. I assumed current recycling techniques in Malaysia is able to shift glass from the other rubbish?

    Hi, I tried looking for a place in Ampang Jaya to recycle but the link that was shared is no longer available. I am not recycling in bulk but just my every month waste.

    Is there any other place you can suggest that is near to where I live ?

    Thanks !

    there are quite a number of recycling collectors around KL & selangor, consider two types of them like 1st type is they visit your place with some token pay with they “buy”, they buy paper, plastic, computer almost 60% of household items, another type will be consider like “donate” for charity, same as first choice but be aware of some charity collector will “charge” RM80+/- just want to give away your usable mattress or dining set, no comment for 2nd choice & depend on your decision, you can google search and will get alot of contact which is nearby your area.

    As i know, kl-selangor area not many recycler accept glasses as recycables. So far i know only iCYCLE and Kechara recycling day (Sunwaymas) did.

    Besides that, iCYCLE pickup toner/cartridges, old clothings, light bulb, AA batteries, e-waste etc.
