DAY 1: VISIT TO DINAS LINGKUNGAN HIDUP & TEMPAT PEMBUANGAN SAMPAH SEMENTARA (TPS 3R)
Location 1: Department of Environment (Dinas Lingkungan Hidup), South Tangerang (Tangsel)
Our arrival at the Department of Environment, Tangerang Selatan at 10.15 a.m was warmly welcomed by the staff in charge and the programme was followed by a meeting with the Head of Division, Bapak Wisman. We were briefed that the department was responsible for waste management in the Tangerang Selatan with a population of 1.5 million where the household wastes were collected 3 times a week while market wastes were collected every day.
Bapak Wisman also enlightened us on the challenges faced by the department, especially the increasing amount of waste disposed to the landfill. Several initiatives were taken by the department to solve this problem including offering the community-based waste management facilities, promoting awareness campaign and applying new waste treatment technology.
One of the initiatives that had been highlighted by them is by creating TPS3R (Temporary waste disposal center). To date, there are 51 TPS3R which were supervised by the department and has been managed by the respective local community, with 10 of them have successfully complied with the 3R concept. They added, the success of TPS3R in reducing the amount of waste disposed to the landfill mainly depends on the commitment and effort of the community members.
We also had the privilege to learn how they promoted the awareness campaign in collaboration with SociopreneurID, a registered NGO led by Dr. Dessy Aliandara via education for young generation. They co-organized international innovation challenge with the theme of superhero characters as a symbol to find a solution for waste management problems. The winning models then were exhibited at the building entrance. Another program with the aim to raise awareness among the people was the ‘Waste Minimization Lifestyle’ campaign. They claimed that this campaign was very successful when they recorded that the amount of waste reduced tremendously within the campaign period. This proved that with effort and cooperation from the public, waste minimization is something doable.
In this visit, we also learnt that Tangerang Selatan has a small incinerator (rotary dry system) in place to cater 2 tonnes of waste every day. Apart from that, there was also an agreement between the department with RDF facilities (involve in cement industry) in Bogor for them to receive 500 tonnes of waste from Tangerang Selatan. The discussion ended with souvenir giving ceremony and photography session.

Location 2: TPS3R Griya Resik
TPS3R Griya Resik is situated in RW06 Griya Serpong residential area. They began their operation since 23rd October 2010. The center is fully managed by the community of KSM Griya Resik with starting fund from the Department of Environment, Tangerang Selatan worth of IDR534,987,180. During the visit, Ibu Nur Aini, TPS3R Griya Resik manager, briefed us on waste segregation activities. She later explained that the main objective of the TPS3R is to segregate the non-organic waste from the organic waste for recycling and latter for conversion to compost and biogas.
Apart from the government fund, she added that TPS3R operating budget comes from monthly fees of 300 families living around the area which worth IDR17,000. It is surprising to know that they actually received some profit from the sales of the recyclable wastes and compost, and this definitely motivates them to engage more in this programme.
We also learnt that the segregated organic wastes were grounded and later was added into the bio digester for the production of biogas. The remaining was left on the compost plot for a month for composting before being sieved and ready to be traded. The discussion ended with souvenir giving ceremony and photography session.

DAY 2: VISIT SociopreneurID TO KAMPUNG KONSERVASI RIMBUN AND NAKNIK CANTIK
KAMPUNG KONSERVASI RIMBUN
Kampung Konservasi Rimbun, Banten (Conservation Village) founded by Gusri Effendi, Alfan (Gusti Effendi’s son) and friends is one of the insightful tourism spots in Banten, Indonesia which prioritize on nature conservation (land, water and air) and the empowerment of social, culture, economic, society and education. This place is initially a personal property which was then transformed by the owner into a tourist spot for education purposes through various fun activities. In addition, The Kampung Konservasi Rimbun is Mr. Gusri’s commitment as one of his Corporate Social Responsibility initiative, which aimed to be served as an educational platform for the local community and public not only for them to learn but also to appreciate biodiversity.
We were invited to have a first-hand experience to connect with nature at the Eco Centre area. Apart from being a nature education centre, the ‘kampung’ also holds a great potential in developing its social role to reach out local community and tourists by offering a unique concept of recreational activities, knowledge, understanding, enjoyment, conservation effort and appreciation of natural environment. The Centre also served as a platform to boost eco-tourism activities in Banten, and at the same time contributing to local socio-economic benefit.
