Throw garbage into activities that we do every day. So often done, sometimes we do not realize that the garbage has been heavily piled up. Whereas the waste management system has not been addressed. No wonder that last year Indonesia became the 2nd largest donor contributor in the world! This seems to be supported by the same number of people who are also abundant. When viewed from the data of the Ministry of Life and Forestry, 2016 yesterday the production of plastic waste generated retail stores reached 10 million plastics you know! That's just plastic waste at retail stores, not yet another kind of waste from factories, food stalls, or houses.
This garbage problem is quite complicated. In addition to its inadequate management, Indonesian citizens themselves are still a lot of blind about waste. The proof is that many of them are still throwing garbage into the sea or river. Although still far from the good word, at least the behavior of some of these parties can be used as a solute example of garbage overhaul ya. Hipwee News & Feature already summarizes some things or objects that can be bought using garbage! Come on, see ~

They see there is potential because the location is far from a food stall whereas many scavengers who often scavenging garbage there. Uniquely, they accept waste as a means of exchange if they want to eat at the shop.
Twenty kilograms of garbage equal to 1 meal complete with drinking. One kilo valued Rp400. Kata Suratmin, the garbage that he will sell to the collectors for Rp500. In addition to profit, the decision also helps the government to tackle garbage.

Every month trash bin built by PLN can manage garbage up to 377 tons you know!
By involving 50 thousand more customers, the procedure of paying electricity there is fairly easy. Customers just need to bring garbage to it, later the officer will sort and weigh the garbage. Then the value will be converted to rupiah and recorded in the savings book.
4. The government of Batam does not want to lose innovation about waste. Last year hundreds of Batam residents traded their garbage with raskin riceBeginning in 2016, the Batam government made a new innovation, which serves the sale of waste that can be exchanged for poor rice (raskin). Convertible rubbish can be plastic, paper, cardboard, aluminum, or cans. If it turns out the value of excess garbage, the rest can be saved or taken. The purpose of this program is to reduce the amount of waste, as well as to help the less fortunate. Interesting yes!
5. In Semarang there is also a library that implements the garbage exchange system. Just bring used plastic bottles, you can borrow books there

On the slopes of Mount Ungaran, precisely in the village of Kalisidi, West Ungaran, Semarang regency, there is a simple library that allows visitors to borrow books just by swapping plastic waste. Each visitor must carry 1 plastic bottle or 3 plastic cups. On average, children borrow two to three books per day.
The existence of the program from the manager of this library was born from the lack of awareness of the community will be waste, especially plastic. In addition, with this system of borrowing and borrowing, the interest of reading community is increasing.

Trash in Depok can also be used to pay tuition. A PAUD there allows parents of students to pay for inorganic garbage.

Kelurahan Pekojan, Tambora Sub-district, West Jakarta, has a complicated problem in the provision of clean drinking water. The river is dirty and not worth it. No wonder the water quality is bad. But the two problems that can be slowly resolved with the local government program that provides a tool to change the river water so the water is ready to drink and can be repaid using the garbage. The price is quite affordable, ie Rp275.000. But not all garbage can be accepted, only the form of mineral water bottles that drift in the river, or plastic waste of coffee packaging and similar types are accepted.
If in Denmark, this garbage solution is one step ahead. There is a supermarket that specializes in selling leftover food. Because of that innovation, the remaining food waste in Denmark can be reduced by 25%. In addition to Denmark, there are also other countries that implement residual food supermarkets, such as the US and UK. Well, in the UK was also the application of the remaining food providers you know. Anyone who has leftover food can upload it to the app, so others can know.

In addition, many are still put negative sentiments of same used goods or waste food. And that could cut the amount of waste that you waste!
