The Tidung Island Urban Village, South Thousand Islands continues to socialize waste sorting and processing to local residents. That is by putting sorting bins in strategic locations.
" Waste sorting by PPSU has been done and the results are processed in the waste bank and composter in the urban village"
"Waste sorting by PPSU has been done and the results are processed in the waste bank and composter in the urban village," expressed Tidung Island Urban Village Head, Hafsah, Thursday (3/26).
Surely this sorting step directly gets appreciation from the Thousand Islands Environment Sub-agency Head Djoko Rianto Budi Hartono.
"From four RWs, 165 cubic meters of household waste have been collected in a week, consisting of organic that will be processed into compost and inorganic waste that will be stored in the waste bank," he uttered.
Every day, his side is capable of collecting 8 kg of organic waste and 150 kg of inorganic.
"Especially for inorganic, after being sorted in the waste bank, an average of 600 - 1,000 kg will be sent to collectors per two weeks," he closed.
