Jokowi: Other Cities Need to Copy Bali's Integrated Waste Plants


President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo and Bali Governor Wayan Koster inaugurated the Kesiman Kertalangu Integrated Waste Management Site (TPST) operation in Denpasar, Bali, on Monday.

Jokowi praised the facility for its simplicity and real output. "I hope this integrated waste management site can be copied in other cities and regencies throughout the country. It is also very neat and good," the president said.

Jokowi admitted that all this time, he had been looking for the correct ways to manage waste and produce recycled products that were truly useful. He was impressed with the facility's waste processing system, from sorting to manufacturing recycled products.

"The system can be anything. It can be an integrated system like here which can produce recycled pellets, compost, fuels, and maggots. It is already running here. The tipping fee is also low. Maybe there will also be an incinerator system later, but the important thing is that there must be an example first," he said.
