Replicable Waste Recycling Project in Gianyar, Bali

Urban areas in Indonesia generate about 55 000 tonnes of solid waste per day, an amount that is expected to triple by 2025. Only about 50%-60% of the urban waste stream is collected, and landfill sites are mostly open dumps. Current waste-management efforts are confounded by poor logistics and lack of infrastructure, available land and conflicts between communities. This project will be implemented at a landfill in the village of Temesi in Gianyar Regency, Bali. The proponents will scale up a community-based recycling facility to divert a larger amount of solid waste entering the dump, and investigate the potential for carbon emissions reduction from the expansion. It is hoped that revenues from the sale of credits will sustain the cost of running the dump and benefit the local community beside it. The process of both scaling up and carbon credit sales will be assessed in terms of cost recovery, technical sustainability and social implications. The idea is to foster consensus between local governments, national policymakers and communities on improved solid waste management.
