LANGKAWI: More incinerators must be built in the country as landfills can no longer be accepted as the best option for waste disposal in the future, Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Chor Chee Heong said.

He said on environmental and health-related grounds, incinerators would also be the preferred choice for waste disposal in the long term.

The minister said the five existing and under-construction incinerators in Langkawi, Tioman Island, Cameron Highlands, Pangkor Island and Labuan were capable of meeting the demand for waste disposal services for another 30 to 40 years.
