Identification of environmental aspects is essential to reduce the impacts. Control measures are such as solid waste and scheduled waste control and pollution control.

Recycling brings cost effective alternatives to landfill disposal.

These recycling Figure 3.

The recycling companies play an important role Due to the nature of the recycling industry which is in environmental recycling programs. Recycling companies environmental related, and the characteristics of the materials press carton scrap to bundle and sent as raw material to handled which is hazardous, the study investigated the produce tissue at tissue factory; wood factory reuses woods for environmental and OSH reporting practices of 44 recyclers in making crates from wood scrap; plastic recyclers pack plastic Malaysia.

The findings indicate that 16 recyclers have waste either by compressing into bundles or re-producing to implemented any form of published environmental and OSH plastic parings by crushing as raw material to manufacture reporting. The findings indicate that three recycling companies construction pipes; recyclers reprocess construction and [Texcycle, CCM Corp.

Recycling is an environment business therefore recycling and recovery companies in Malaysia, which are EMS implementation is to improve efficiency thus mostly The scrap metal are more established contractors is found in public domain. Gypsum waste is processed for gypsum and plaster plants for further process to obtain products such as tin ingots. A used-battery recycling plant that uses reclamation Aluminium is recycled as aluminium flakes.

Secondary steel technology to recover lead which has been approved by the plates can be produced. These materials are redistributed for UN Environmental Department internationally. Recycling recycling by electric arc furnace mills, integrated steel mills, processes of selected material are as shown in Fig. To maintain accuracy and integrity, the recycling companies can equip DOE approved laboratory facilities such as atomic absorption spectrometer AAS , inductively coupled plasma ICP , optical emission spectrometers, high temperature melting furnaces, and ultra violet analyzer.
