Waste Management For A Better Life
“To help the government managing waste, PT United Tractors Tbk (UT) introduces a widely-applied technology in many countries in the world, which is refuse compactor”.
Waste management becomes one of challenges in some big cities in Indonesia as the population grows rapidly. To put all the wastes that are produced by human activities, it is required large landfill. Most of landfills in Indonesia are using public spaces where wastes are stored with inappropriate waste management, and eventually creates water, air and soil pollutions.
Currently, one of government’s initiatives to tackle the waste problems is the implementation of 3R which stands for reduce-reuse-recycle. Government also implements Intermediate Treatment Facilities (ITF) which transforms wastes to electricity or fertilizer. Those two initiatives show significant results in reducing waste volume. However, waste problem is far from over as the waste volume increases more rapidly every year and it requires larger landfill.
Refuse Compacting System
Most of countries in the world have been applying refuse compacting system to manage wastes. The method is implemented to shrink waste material size by compacting it and as a result the waste volume becomes smaller.
By applying refuse compacting system, landfill capacity will be tripled if compared with conventional method. The system also prevents water pollution in the landfill area as it produces cleaner water infiltration as rainfall directly flows to drainage bypassing the waste. Once the stacked waste surface is covered with soil, the landfill may be used for public facilities among others golf course, sport center or playground.
