Independent non-profit Delterra has announced the successful completion of its waste management system in the village of Kesiman Kertalangu in Bali, Indonesia.

The waste management effort was carried out as part of Delterra’s ‘Rethinking Recycling’ programme.

Delterra implemented this two-year-long programme in Kesiman Kertalangu in collaboration with the Indonesia Packaging Recovery Organisation (IPRO) and the Department of Environment and Hygiene of Denpasar City (DLHK).

The scheme has now ‘effectively transformed’ the waste management system in Kesiman Kertalangu, demonstrating the village’s commitment and ability to run the programme independently.

This milestone was marked by an official ceremony that was attended by various local and village officials, the waste management team from village-owned enterprise BUMDes, as well as the Environmental Education and Training Centre Bali.

Delterra Asia regional director Lalit Matai said: “Over the past two years, Delterra has collaborated with the local community of Kesiman Kertalangu to drive source separation at source and divert waste from landfill.

“The continuous support from the DLHK and IPRO has greatly facilitated our challenging journey. Changing people’s behaviour is undoubtedly challenging, but our commitment to waste management transformation is abundantly clear.”

As part of this effort, Delterra worked with the associated organisations to facilitate five crucial factors that would change the recycling behaviour of the more than 30,000 residents in the village.

These factors included community engagement, behaviour change, operation optimisation, material sales, and digital enablement.

Kesiman Kertalangu’s head, I Made Suena, said: “The technical support and knowledge in source-based waste management have empowered us to sustain this programme independently.”

The Rethinking Recycling effort was first launched in 2019 in Desa Kedas Sanur Kauh village in Denpasar, Indonesia.

Delterra and its associated team will now continue to monitor and track the system’s progress in the village. The company is available to consult with the villagers during this period.

The company’s next target is to implement this same programme in the Badung region of Bali over the next three to five years.
