The Impacts of Movement Control Order (MCO) Towards Waste Generation in Penang
Ever since the implementation of Movement Control Order (MCO) in Malaysia, a considerable amount of personal protective equipment (e.g. masks, gloves, hand sanitiser bottles) and plastic packaging (e.g. disposable food packaging and plastic wraps) littered the streets, drains and waterways. This indicates that amidst the Covid-19 outbreak, single-use plastic items are making a comeback.

In line with the implementation of No Single-use Plastic Campaign that started in April 2019, and to tackle the current waste issue arising from the Covid-19 pandemic, this public survey is conducted to understand public purchasing behaviour and single-use plastic practices before and during the MCO (18th March to 9th June 2020) in Penang. The survey also aims to determine the amount of waste generated and the effectiveness of waste management.

Objective:
- To provide data and insights in order to assist policymakers and other related agencies to better deal with similar crises in the future.
- To observe how the MCO has influenced waste generation in Penang
- To understand consumer purchasing behaviour before and during the movement control order (MCO) in Penang
