BANDUNG - The West Java Provincial Government has begun to auction back the construction of the Legoknangka Waste Processing and Sorting Site (TPPAS) located in Cicalengka, Bandung Regency. The TPPAS was built to accommodate waste from six surrounding areas namely Bandung, Cimahi, Bandung Regency, West Bandung, Garut, and Sumedang.
West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil (Emil) said that his party together with five regions had agreed on the amount of the levy that would be imposed when the TPPAS was operating. This agreement is needed before a technology auction is conducted.
"We re-agree on the cooperation of five regions, related to the preparation of the Legoknangka TPPAS to be auctioned. It takes an understanding of commitment between the districts / cities," Emil said in Bandung, Wednesday (09/10/2019).
He explained, this agreement resulted in the amount of fees that would be imposed on five regions. Later, each regency / city will receive a 30% subsidy from the West Java Provincial Government.
According to him, a fee had been agreed for each ton of garbage to reach Rp386 thousand. "It will be divided. 30% from the province, around Rp.115,800. The rest will come from cities / regencies," he said.
In addition to providing subsidies, according to Emil, his party will also prepare waste pickup centers from each region. This is believed to make it easier and reduce the burden of transporting waste from each district / city.
"There is a transitional station between (SPA). So those transporting directly to Legoknangka, there are no regional trucks, such as there is a rest area. So that the cost of the city / regency budget which has been (to transport from) end to end, can be reduced by half," he said.
Emil further said, the reduction in costs related to waste management is in accordance with Presidential Regulation No. 35 of 2018. In addition, he will also issue a governor regulation related to providing incentives to the regions.
"Regions that have succeeded in reducing waste will be given incentives. In the form of financial support from the province," he said.
He added, Sarimukti TPPAS, which has been used for a lifetime, will end until 2023. A similar thing happened in TPPAS Legoknangka if it did not use technology.
"Legoknangka also if conventional, for only at least four years. Then there is no other choice, management of waste management must immediately switch to technology," he said.
In the same place, West Java Provincial Environment Agency Head Bambang Rianto said, the TPPAS Legoknangka capacity reached 1,800-2,100 tons per day.
"Bandung City 1,200-1300, City of Cimahi 150-250, Bandung Regency 300-345, KBB 75-86, Sumedang 28-32, Garut 100-115 tons. This does not include industrial and medical waste," he said.
According to Bambang, later the waste will be processed into electricity so that it will be physically discharged in the Legoknangka TPPAS. Touched on the SPA system, according to him at the transitional place will also be packaging waste that will be taken to the Legoknangka TPPAS.
"It will be sorted, especially in the press. So the transportation will be smaller," he said while mentioning that he would build a SPA. (Even)
