Develop sustainable waste management with a circular economy approach.
Through Mulung project, Parahita encourages scavengers to develop more through capital fund and assistance such as; standardize the sorting of recycled materials, business management and finance into MSMEs so that in the future they can become independent and be recognized as business legalities. Mulung develops technology-based platform and systems for stakeholders in waste management.
69% of waste in Indonesia is mounted in the landfills. 24% is abandoned in the lands, waterways, ocean, or burned. Only 7% has been recycled. According to Statistics Indonesia, Indonesia produces 64 million tons of waste every year of which 85,000 tons are dumped into rivers which then end up in the sea. Mountains of garbage in landfills due to unhandled waste cannot be avoided, almost all landfills in Indonesia have almost run out of land for waste. Don’t let the leuwigajah tragedy “catastrophic waste avalanche” happen again. Help Indonesia to be better, it starts with you!
