Broga is a small town in Selangor, 50 km from Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia.

It is the location of a somewhat controversial development where Asia's largest incinerator is to be built, designed to reduce Kuala Lumpur's dependence on landfill as a means of waste management. In early 2005, a temporary injunction was issued, stopping work on the project, in response to a lawsuit by residents of Broga and the nearby Semenyih.

The injunction has since expired, however, and work has continued, much to the disappointment of the local residents. They complained that the project was started without consultation and Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), and fear for the health and environmental effects of the incinerator on their town.
