  6. Burning Capacity
    1. 100kg to 150kg per hour ( Depend on the type of garbage’s )
    2. Maximum burning time is 24 hours per day
  7. Separating garbage and collection method

  11. CONCLUSION
    We would like to conclude that Zero Waste house (500 units one container) is best to allocate at each residential areas to reduce increasing amount of waste in Sabah. We are pleased to inform that we would place Zero waste (500 units one container) at every district (as per district requirement) in exchange to the Zero Waste House we would like to strongly request Sabah government to encourage the public to buy our MBK plastic bags as this will be our sole income to cover our expenses on Zero Waste House. We assure you that the plastic bag’s price is expected to be at or lower than market price
