TEMPO.CO, Denpasar - Bali has earned acclaim as the only province that greatly contributes to waste reduction from the Environment and Forestry Ministry. The award was given at the commemoration event of the 2021 National Waste Awareness Day.

“The Ministry of Environment and Forestry presented 14 awards to 14 regions at the provincial and district/city level. Remarkably, Bali is the only one winning the award at the provincial level,” said the Provincial Forestry and Environment Agency Head, I Made Teja, in Denpasar, Tuesday, February 23.

The award was handed out during the hybrid commemoration of the national day on Monday, February 22. For this achievement, the Provincial Government was also entitled to receive the Regional Incentive Funds (DID) specifically for the waste management totaling Rp5.65 billion.
