Recycling - repulping
ecoBali and packaging producer Tetra Pak Indonesia have established a program in Bali with the goal to maximize the recycling of post-consumer beverage cartons, increase awareness and disseminate information on waste disposal, recycling and renewable resources.
Post consumer beverage cartons such as milk, juices, tea, etc can now be recycled in Indonesia. There are currently two main facilities in Java that with the help of Tetra Pak Indonesia have installed appropriate equipment to separate the paper from the aluminum and plastic component of the package, so that it can be recycled.
Since the establishment of the program in 2007 more than 600 tons of these packages have been collected and sent to recycling facilities. Currently we are averaging a monthly collection and recycling rate for the southern part of Bali of more that 24 tons/month.
Activities currently involve collectors, hotels, and schools.
Collectors - ecoBali is working with local waste recovery facilities, such as Temesi in Gianyar and Jimbaran Lestari, as well as with other collectors, in order to facilitate carton collection and create a network of efficient recycling system.
Schools - An important component of the program focuses on environmental education in local schools with emphasis in teaching proper waste disposal, the 3 Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) and placing value on the use of renewable resources.Each school involved in the program is provided with a collection service. Schools involved are currently in the area of Canggu and Kerobokan, more than 5000 kids have been involved.
Hotels - With an increase in use of beverage cartons in the hotel industry, information and training sessions are held for hotel staff to encourage carton collection. The program has received a positive response among main hotels in Bali with the endorsement of the Bali Hotel Association (BHA) and Ubud Hotel Association (UHA). Participating hotels are provided with information sessions on best practices of waste disposal and recycling, and containers for collecting post consumer beverage cartons.
