Waste is a big problem in Indonesia as we are facing big plastic pollution in the ocean. Indonesia is known as the 2nd largest plastic waste contributor to the ocean. The question and core issue is how to manage waste on land so that it will not even reach the ocean.


We create 3 apps (individual, waste bank, buyer). The apps integrate actors from “individual”, “waste bank” and “buyer”. We empower waste banks as the solution for waste management so that their businesses will sustain. The apps will record all recyclable waste collected and distribute it to the recycling manufacturer.


We target each individual (at least 2,6 million or 1% of total population) to deposit waste and earn money. We also aim that all current waste banks (around 8000 across Indonesia) will use our apps. We also connect with around 500 recycling manufacturers across Indonesia.
