We usually get trash from the garbage collector. The trash is sold expensive enough so our profit is not very significant. The trash chain is as follow: Society dump the trash, then it is collected by official cleaning service then moved to final dumping site. In the site, scavenger collects the valuable trash to be sold to trash bank then the trash bank sell it to big collector. So, if we break this chain, by taking directly from people, we will get more margin because we get cheaper price.Through the mobile application that works with waste management we absorb organic trash and transform it to biogass and non organic trash recycled to be trading commodity. The garbage is piling up because society didn't separate the waste in their home. They don't realize the benefit of trash if they sell to us as waste management. By massive campaign, We want to trigger society's collective awareness to separate the waste, join our movement to utilise trash and get money from it. This movement will uplift the life of scavengers that now living in poverty also the live of marginalised people in Pontianak. We want people can make money from selling trash
Our pilot project is in Pontianak that inhabited by 651.598 population. All of them are trash producer. Everyday they dump organic and non organic trash so, if only 20% access our web application then contribute the waste to us, only one kg/person. We will have 130 tons trash from 130.319 people. It is seen from people. Pontianak has many restaurants, hotels, schools, and hospitals as the big source of trash, we can propose our application integrated with their system so they will get benefit from the application and we will pick up their trash then give benefits in return
People of Pontianak get used to dump the waste to river while the river is the source of city water. Most of people live in poverty. The government only transfer the trash from society home to end trash reservoir. As the citizen, we are triggered by those facts. We want to save environment yet give benefit to pontianak people. We have been dealing with recycling operation for 6 years and we get a lot of benefit from our business now we are very enthusiastic of having all people of pontianak on board to utilize web based application. Though it is maybe troublesome for some uneducated people who don't know internet but it is time for the educated to help uneducated people, that's why we encourage campaign as massive awakening towards garbage problem.
