Decentralized Urban Solid Waste Management in Indonesia

Urban areas of Indonesia generate about 55 000 tonnes of solid waste per day, an amount that is expected to triple by 2025. Only 50% or 60% of the urban waste is collected, and landfill sites are mostly open dumps. Current efforts to manage solid waste are confounded by inability to cover operational costs, poor logistics, inadequate infrastructure, land scarcity and conflicts between communities.

This project will develop and validate four models of decentralized solid waste management in low-income urban areas of Tangerang, Sidoarjo, Denpasar and Mataram. The four models will be evaluated in terms of cost-recovery, technical sustainability and social acceptability. Efforts will be made to achieve recognition of scavengers and formalize their livelihoods.

The lessons learned and best (and worst) practices will be compiled, disseminated and fed into policy dialogues at the national and regional level.
