Malaysia was shocked by an incident involving illegal scheduled waste disposal at Sungai Kim Kim, which has caused environmental and health implications for the communities in Pasir Gudang. In March 2019, the incident caused a major uproar in Malaysia as it impacted a huge number of victims, especially school children. Not long after the incident, 15 drums of sodium cyanide was found to be illegally dumped in an oil palm plantation in Karak.
