Waste Management Solutions from Bali, Indonesia “The garbage problem affects everybody, rich and poor, and if you can't deal with that basic problem—pollution from your waste—then how are you going to deal with these large, more complex problems, like deforestation, destruction of the coral reef, and climate change?” —Olivier Poullion, Bali Recycling, Bali, Indonesia In Bali, garbage is increasingly becoming a concern for locals and tourists alike, detracting from the island’s natural beauty. Illegal dumping, burning garbage, and a lack of access to waste management facilities means that Bali’s air, land, and water - and all those who live, work, and play in it - battle pollution daily. Emerging directly out of community concern, this project highlights the best practices and sustainable solutions being implemented to address Bali’s garbage crisis, with contributions from diverse sectors of Bali’s community from local banjars to non-profit organizations to tourism professionals and waste management experts. For the health of the local population, the environment, and the tourism economy, taking positive and proactive action is key to the sustainability of Bali on all levels.
