Bali Governor I Wayan Koster plans to close all landfills on the island before the G-20 event this year.
During a meeting with Bali Senators on Thursday (31/3), Koster confirmed that he plans to close all landfills across the island, including the biggest one in Suwung, Denpasar in 2022.
“I will close down all landfills in the island by September this year, even the one in Suwung, Denpasar that has been receiving over 800 tons of waste daily,” Koster said.
As a substitute for the closed landfills, the Bali provincial government will develop Reuse, Reduce, Recycle Waste Disposal Facilities (TPS3R) and Integrated Waste Disposal Facilities (TPST. These will accommodate the large amount of waste with a better management system.
“With the landfills closed and the TPS3R and TPST up and running, we won’t have problem with overcapacity landfill anymore,” Koster added.
Koster plans to run a waste reduction program in all the villages across the island.
“We will resume our waste reduction program and the TPS3R and TPST development this year. We will open 26 TPS3R and 15 TPST across various regions including Denpasar before the G-20 Conference in September,” Koster concluded.
