CIRCULAR SOLUTION FOR SUSTAINABILITY CHALLENGES
Assist villages in tackling the waste crisis by implementing circular economic practices.
Conventional waste management systems only move the waste but do not solve the problem
- Centralized waste management is not efficient in returning material economic value.
- The collect-and-dispose practice shortens the life of the TPA.
- Mix waste accumulation, waste burning, and illegal waste disposal.
- Waste management workers have no legal status and receive minimum wages.
- Local Governments cannot sustain high-cost technology operations .
- Enforcement of Waste Management regulations that are inconsistent with the Law .
We guide villages to be independent in enforcing rules and managing the finances of the waste management system.
- Separation of material from its source is the key to effective and efficient waste management.
- As much as 90% of household leftovers materials can be recycled and included in the circular economy scheme.
- Participatory waste management system that involves all levels of society, including ownership of facilities by the community.
- Growing and empowering women’s leadership.
- Creating productive economic sustainability for villagers.
- Developing capital turnover within the village to improve community welfare.
What We Do
To solve the waste crisis on the island of Bali, we have a mission to reduce the waste that goes to landfill by 90%. To achieve this goal, we assisted the village by conducting the following three activities:
We assist villages in practicing source based waste management by implementing #SeparationIsTheKey principle.
We educate the communities by building a leading team to support sustainable waste management system.
We create connectivity between the waste management system and the productive economic activities of the communities.
MPH contribution to SDGs
During 2019-2022, MPH managed to reduce carbon emissions by 26,452 tons
Currently, more than 200 people work at the waste management facility under the MPH program.
Currently, there are more than 160 women involved in all MPH-assisted village facilities.
Until 2022, 17 villages have committed to implementing the Merah Putih Hijau program.
A total of 26,494 tons of material can be reused and not disposed to landfill.
Previously, waste in Pejeng was still mixed. We collected up to 3 trucks a day and disposed them in illegal landfills. After collaborating with MPH, we can produce compost that has a composition like coffee, very smooth. We are still disposing the residual waste to the landfill. We used to go to Temesi three times a week, but now we only go once.
