A LOCAL, SCALEABLE SOLUTION TO WASTE MANAGEMENT

Indonesia is the second biggest plastic marine polluter in the world.
MPH recycles 90% of waste and creates revenue for the local communities

RECYCLED MATERIAL

90%

MPH has proven that we can reduce waste to landfill by over 90% if we enforce separation

MATERIALS MANAGED PER DAY

29tons

That is 4 elephants, that we manage per day

AVOIDED CO2 EMISSIONS IN 2019

6365tons

Equivalent to 105,247 tree seedlings grown for 10 years

WASTE OR MATERIAL?

Plastics, papers, metals and other valuable materials become waste when they get mixed with organic residues, they quickly attract pest and become a problem to manage.

WASTE 👎
Mixing organics and non organics lets our materials become waste and then we cannot reuse or recycle. The waste becomes too hard to manage.

MATERIAL 👍
Separating organic and inorganic materials for management ensures we can recycle, compost, and reuse them locally and avoid extra waste.

The problems of materials and waste management in Indonesia

Collection teams have no authority to enforce separation at source, village and district level authorities are not enforcing the Indonesian law to sort, separate and manage materials on a community level.

Over 90% of the materials are getting wasted in landfills

Long waiting lines and overcapacity is a result of no effective separation at source

Landfills create methane emissions and leach poison into the air and water table

The old waste management system doesn’t work

Why waste management doesn’t work in RURAL villages?

Responsibility is not clear

Collection teams and community managers do not have enough authority to make hotels, restaurants, and households separate and sort their materials at source. If everything gets mixed into one container. Nobody can manage it.

Waste is a cost to our economy

Valuable materials are getting wasted in landfills, methane emissions from landfills contribute to global warming, illegal dumping is leaking plastic into our rivers and environment, burning waste is a cause of cancer and air pollution.

Collection Fees and Infrastructure Funds are still being mismanaged

A lack of transparency and financial reporting and monitoring of material flows is leading to very large amounts of funds being abused and mismanaged. Community owned material/ waste management has not been considered as an opportunity to reduce complexity and increase transparency and collective partnership.

How MPH solves the problem

We build local movements that empower a set group of dedicated villagers, to take charge of their material and waste with low-tech community owned facilities.

Decentralized and community-owned

BUMDES and KSM groups take charge of building a sustainable movement

Generations of change

Local facilities provide educational showcases and develop the understanding of why separation is key

Creating revenue from collection fees and materials

Revenues can be as high as 10,000$ per month and provide an incentive to participate

Who We Are

MPH started as a pilot in the little village of Pererenan in 2016

Soils in Indonesia are depleted in Indonesia and need compost and organic materials to be restored for future agriculture. Plastics, Metals an Papers can be recycled if they stay clean. MPH doesn´t just try to reduce plastics in our environment, MPH offers a holistic approach to materials and waste management by looking at the entire lifecycle of all material within every community and by bringing back an understanding of the true value of what are calling waste.
