TEMPO.CO, JakartaThe city government of Pariaman, West Sumatra is developing a waste recycling center in Tungkal Utara Village with a total fund of Rp3.4 billion. This facility has a capacity of up to 10 tons of waste a day.

As quoted from langgam.id, Pariaman Mayor Genius Umar said there are only four similar waste recycling centers in the archipelago. Apart from Pariaman, the facility also exists in Kota Metro of Lampung, Merangin Jambi Regency, and Kudus Regency of Central Java.

The funding for the construction of this waste management system came from the Directorate General of Waste and Hazardous Toxic Waste Management (Ditjen PSLB3) of the Environment and Forestry Ministry.

All stages of waste management will be carried out in the recycling center. Genius also said that there will be a very little amount of residue that will be disposed of at the final disposal site.

It is hoped that the waste processing at the PDU will help maintain the cleanliness of the city and support the city as a tourist destination that will apply the green tourism concept.

Genius also said that Environment and Forestry Deputy Minister Alue Dohong planned to inspect the waste recycling center in the near future. Thus, the facility and its infrastructures must be completed and start operating soon.
