Innovation

Satu Hati Trash Bank is the center of the buying and selling of waste material for money. The company pushes society to reduce waste from its source, particularly the household. Specifically, the company encourages people to sort waste by type. It is then collected and deposited to the Trash Bank at the village level. From there, the sorted waste is traded at the Satu Hati Trash Bank.

Waste received by Satu Hati Trash Bank has a very large variety, including plastic cups, plastic bottles, sachet packaging, paper, used buckets, copper, and aluminum. Each type of waste is also valued differently. For example, a glass of bottled water, can be valued at Rp. 7,700 per kilogram ($0.56 USD per kilogram) in clean conditions but that price is cut in half if it's dirty

Inspiration

Satu Hati Trash Bank wanted to become a business center that can help increase the economic value of the community. Specifically, Edy Mulyanto was inspired by believing that the existence of a Trash Bank would be very important to reduce the volume of waste dumped in Bantar Gebang's latest landfill, Bekasi. He then inspired the community through sorting the inorganic waste that is still economically valuable for resale to the Trash Bank, which has allowed the company to be able to contribute to environment cleanliness.

Overall impact

From the results of sorting the waste, the Trash Banks is able to handle 820 tons/day and up to the total volume of 1,500 tons/day. The society is now increasing awareness around the community of sorting out inorganic waste, and the volume of waste dumped in Bantar Gebang's latest landfill, Bekasi continues to decrease.
