Danone-AQUA has officially established an Integrated Waste Disposal Facility (TPST) to solve Bali’s waste management problem.

The Director of Sustainable Development Danone Indonesia, Karyanto Wibowo, stated that the TPST operation, which was just inaugurated a few months ago, is very important to reduce the waste that ends up in Final Disposal Sites (TPA) Suwung. These disposal sites have exceeded their capacity, receiving 4,200 tons of waste each day or 1.5 million tons every year.

“Danone-AQUA has become a pioneer in the management and recycling of plastic waste. It is committed to assisting the Indonesian government in reducing the amount of plastic waste in the oceans by 70% by 2025. We hope that this TPST waste management facility in Jimbaran will help the Balo provincial government solve its waste management problems, especially as the Suwung landfill has exceeded its capacity,” Wibowo said during the media tour on Monday (6/12).

The Samtaku TPST is currently accepting waste from seven areas in South Bali, such as Kutuh Village, Jimbaran Village, Ungasan Village, Bualu Village, Seminyak and Legian, in collaboration with PT. Reciki Mantab Jaya. These efforts are supported by the Bali provincial government, the Badung regional government, and the local community.

“In this facility, household waste will be separated. PET plastic will be sent to Veolia Factory in East Java and processed into recycled PET (rPET), which Danone-AQUA will then use to make bottles.

Meanwhile, the organic waste will be processed into compost, and residue waste will be processed using Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) technology to produce fuel. This makes Samtaku TPST Jimbaran an inclusive waste management that adopts the principle of Circular Economy and Zero Waste Landfill,” the Director of PT Reciki Mantab Jaya, Bhima Aries Diyanto, said.

Waste management

To socialize the circular economy vision initiated by Danone-AQUA to reuse, reduce, and recycle waste, Danone-AQUA has collaborated with Yayasan Pembangunan Citra Insan Indonesia (YPCII) in carrying out educational activities. This is with the hope that doing so would change the waste management behavior of 10,000 families around the South Kuta district.

Danone-AQUA is currently focused on Education, Collection, and Innovation to ensure its circular economy vision is fully implemented for the improvement of Bali, its community, and the environment.

The Indonesian government must make this pollution problem a top priority or the health and safety of the Balinese will suffer greatly. Before Covid the Indonesian government has benefited by reaping the revenue generated by Bali's tourist industry and thereby must reinvest in the island's infratructure.

A waste management system must be implemented to deal with the island's growing pollution problem which will only increase once tourism is restored. The local's must be educated on the problems of waste disposal that currently has destroyed the island's precious ecosystem and more importantly the health and safety of their well-being.

The amount of waste will only increase in time and planning must look at solutions on how it must be addressed today and how to manage the increased volume of the future. It may be too late but if you don't look for solutions now the future of the island's health and prosperity is in jeopardy.
