Share The Article

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.

My name Anny Pratiwi & I'm Balinese located in Dalung village, North Kuta, Badung regency, to inform that there had an act from Bali's Government, as far as i know it was since 2010 for solving a waste solution in Bali, and until now it is still as an active activity in every Banjar's community in Balinese villagers and becoming one of the top Bali's Government's plan since 2018 and since the pandemic era began. We can't blaming neighbors or a visitors who had visited Bali for a decades, and it is not a part of a Bali's promotion for tourism as well but the act is more for the future of a green world's living promotion and it will started from our consciousness all together. It is an unfortunate if there's a Balinese who still not knowing regarding this. You can seek more info regarding the activity of "Bank Sampah" or Bank for disposal and waste in Bali; Bali Wastu Lestari, Bali Bersih, or you can follow me on my facebook at Bsm Pengilian Dalung or email to [email protected], for one of local Bali's waste community, or Eco Bali (foreigner founder of waste management community in Bali) Until now we're still seeking for any feedbacks or ideas that can build up our future services for the come back of the green Balinese. Any inquiry or any feedbacks would be very welcome, thank you very much

Sincerely yours, Anny Pratiwi

Like anything Indonesia tries, it will fail, or take many years to accomplish. I love Bali but Indonesia is one of the most corrupt, incompetent countries in the world and they know it.

I look forward to the next articles about TPS3R and how it is delayed, over budget or fail.

@Andy Ryan, yep, it's all talk talk talk, no action. Comical to read all these plans all the time. What's next, space port, tunnel to Singapore? Now building waste management or whatever, in reality can't even provide trash bins on the beach, utter joke.

In this context, I would like to ask how many sewage treatment plants are there in Bali? judging by the dirty sea not a single one!

Will he do that before or after building the new airport, or making a tram line to Kuta, or implementing flying taxis, or diversifying Bali economy off from tourism, or building a cruise ship port, or providing free Wi-Fi on Kuta beach?

Do you want to clean the island then make it free for the poor to dump their garbage in local dumpsters then they won’t throw it in the jungle. Than sorters will come in and sort it for free
