Waste Identification in Tenganan Pegringsingan Customary Village
Friday morning, August 13, 2021 at the parking lot east of Tenganan.
When we arrived around 07.40, the activity had already started. There were about 30 Tenganan youths who gathered with PPLH Bali. Not only young people from the Tenganan Pegringsingan Customary Village (Banjar Kauh, Tengah, and Kangin) but also from Seked and Abianbada. They were accompanied by representatives from Kelian Desa Adat (Head of Customary Village) and Kelian Dinas (Head of Local Government Representative).
That morning they conducted WABA, a Waste Analysis Brand Audit was conducted to find out the most products used or consumed by the people of Tenganan Village. There are about 50 bags inorganic waste collected. Garbage was collected for eight days from 100 households, about 30% of the total households in Tenganan Village. A total of 60 households are in the village and 40 households are spread out in the garden.
Previously, data collection activities have been carried out to compile village profiles and measure awareness/care and waste management practices that have been carried out. The brand audit itself is carried out in conjunction with the study of waste characteristics. Later, from all the data that has been collected and analyzed, it will be used to design a village waste management system.
Sunday, September 26, 2021 at Wantilan, Tenganan Village.
Waste Identification Activities are part of the Conservation Area Management Program towards be Autonomous Village. Apart from Tenganan Pegringsingan, the program will also be conducted in Banjar Dukuh Sibetan. The program is aimed at making the conservation areas of the Tenganan Pegringsingan and Dukuh Sibetan areas an independent and sustainable community productive management area and functioning as a learning space.
The results of the identification of waste and the results of the study were then presented on September 26, 2021 at the community hall of Tenganan Village. The amount of waste produced by each family ranges from 1-5 kg and usually the waste produced is disposed of in the morning. The most types of waste produced are plastic, leaves from ceremonies, and food waste. Most of the food waste is used for animal feed, and inorganic waste is still disposed of carelessly, some is dumped into gardens, rivers, or vacant land and burned.
This is partly because the facilities and infrastructure for waste management are still lacking. So then, the respondents hope that the village has a waste management site with management staff. In addition, based on the results of the brand audit, it was found that out of 100 respondents from Tenganan residents, the most waste generated was packaging from PT Wings Indonesia, Danone, and PT Unilever, especially for food and hygiene products.
Based on this audit, conclusions and recommendations that can be given for the Tenganan Pegringsingan Customary Village are:
• Waste management related to awareness, perception and participation needs to be improved
• The amount of waste generated by residents is estimated at 657 kg/person/year
• The types of products produced are dominated by products from PT Wings Indonesia
• Need to issue regulations on waste management policies, waste banks, facilities and infrastructure
• The behavior of family waste management is still very dominant: collect, throwing it into the garden, riverbank, forest, burning and stockpiling.
• There were 13 locations of illegal trash found, many on riverbanks and important forests
