But her environment has been worsening due tosome grounds such as waste management problems, rapid growth of industrialization, urbanization, lack of facilities, unawareness, weakness of law enforcement, lack of technology etc. Particularly, waste management has become a global threat to the urban environment including Malaysia that might not be attractive to the tourists from the different parts of the world. It may bear negative impacts on the economy of Malaysia as well. In order to address these issues, in the meantime, the Government of Malaysia has passed several laws including the Environment Quality Act, 1974; the Solid Waste and Public Cleansing Management Act, 2007; the Streets, Drainage and Buildings Act, constitutional laws, the Shariah laws, principles of English Law, the Malay Customary Laws,the National Vision Policy (2001-2010), the National Development Policy (1991-2000); the New Economic Policy (1971-2000); along with some other relevant international norms and principles as are being implemented at the federal, state and the local levels. However, this study examines the existing waste pollution laws and policies as applied in Bangi-kajang, in Malaysia consists of 25 respondents in different criteria such as the professionals including foreigners, local people, old aged people, law enforcing agency, students etc., based on the primary and secondary sources through structured and unstructured questionnaire in Bangi-Kajang, Malaysia.
