Pulau Pasaran is a center for anchovy and salted fish production with an area of 13 hectares that supplies fish throughout Lampung. This island, which is inhabited by more than 1,500 people or 354 families, has the potential to be
developed into a city tourism area through sustainable coastal area management.
However, in 2021, waste generation on Pulau Pasaran will reach 2,864 kg per week or around 149,000 kg per year, of which 64% is plastic residue. This is caused by the disparity between the high amount of waste produced, the high percentage of residents who do not manage waste, which is 95.4%, and the absence of access to pick-up and waste processing. As a result, waste on Pasaran Island has not been managed properly so that it pollutes the waters around Pasaran Island and hinders the optimization of the development of Pulau Pasaran into a tourism area.
The ‘Pasaran Wawai’ Program aims to reduce waste generation, prevent waste leakage into the environment, and provide economic benefits to the surrounding community in order to support the improvement of community welfare.
This program is expected to encourage collaboration with stakeholders from various sectors to help achieve targets, namely changing behavior in managing waste, realizing inorganic waste pick-up and collection services to facilitate waste management, and opening up green jobs for local communities throughout the solution chain.
To present solutions to achieve goals on Pulau Pasaran, changemakers implemented three main solutions for the waste management system through the concept of a circular economy.
Focused on changing the behavior of the people at Pulau Pasaran. This involves educating households and MSMEs on how to reduce waste pollution, improve waste management sorting practices, and process organic waste.
Initiation of a digital waste pick-up platform to facilitate the collection and transportation of waste to RINDU (Rumah Inovasi Daur Ulang or Recycling Innovation House) – a waste management site, waste bank, and a 3R temporary garbage shelter.
Organic waste composting processed at the source location, and the upcycling of residual low-value waste into roster products (concrete ventilation) at the RINDU waste processing site to give economic benefit.
We are educating the local community and incubating Kartini Pasaran on waste management to change their habits and reduce waste.
To create a real impact on the environment, we are committed to continuously increase the amount of waste transported and processed from Pasaran Island.
Not only focusing on reducing waste, we also participate in recycling waste to create a sustainable economic impact.
