Plastic Pollution Challenge
- In Indonesia, only around 10% of the plastic waste is recycled and the rest is polluting the environment
- In Mandalika, the total waste generation is 215.7 tons/year and the existing waste management system still need a lot of improvement because most of the waste are still ended up in the ocean and burned
- The main factor is the lack of integration in waste management system
Rekosistem will provide an effective and efficient pickup and drop point platform in terms of scheduling, routing, manpower distribution, and waste collection to the offtaker. Waste drop points will be built in villages around the Mandalika area. Drop points are built by empowering the land owned by residents who are willing to be used as a place for waste management in the surrounding area. Rekosistem will help provide education to each village so that its residents can sort their inorganic waste and deposit it at the nearest drop point. We will provide competitive incentives for workers in the local village waste management sector. We will work with the existing Waste Bank and Recycling Center to serve as a bulk collection point for inorganic waste that has been collected from each village drop point.
Rekosistem will provide responsible waste pickup services to Hotels, Resorts, and Events in Mandalika. It ensures waste that are produced by Businesses Activities will be managed responsibly, prevent the leakage to the environment, and minimize dumping to Landfills. This services will empower local waste workers to work with us, generate a productive income, and work more efficient. We enlighten the worker with standardized waste pickup, segregation, and management modules.
By empowering the local communities and resources we are aiming to improve a more integrated waste management system and accelerate the rate of waste managed in Mandalika.
