 Baktiseraga Village, Buleleng, received the Bhakti Pertiwi Bali Nugraha award from the Governor of Bali Wayan Koster. Baktiseraga Village together with 3 other official villages and one traditional village in Bali which also received the same award was considered successful in implementing source-based waste management.

The three other official villages are Taro Village (Tegallalang District, Gianyar), Paksebali Village (Dawan District, Klungkung), Punggul Village (Abiansemal District, Badung), and one traditional village is Padang Tegal Traditional Village (Ubud/Ubud District, Gianyar). .

By Governor Koster, Baktiseraga Village and these villages have taken the initiative to independently carry out source-based waste management, under Bali Governor Regulation Number 47 of 2019.

The award was handed over by the Governor of Bali at the same time as the launching of Governor's Decree No. 381/03P/HK/2021 concerning Guidelines for Source-Based Waste Management in Villages/Kelurahan and Traditional Villages, Friday, April 9, 2021, at the Wantilan Temple Gunung Raung, Taro Village, Tegallalang District. , Gianyar.

With this award, Baktiseraga Village along with three other agencies and one traditional village that received the award deserved to be considered an "example problem" by other villages in source-based waste management, meaning that waste management was carried out in the village itself so that no more shipments were made. to the Final Disposal Site (TPA). If that happens, the government's troubles, in this case, the Environment Agency, will slowly be reduced.

How is the story that Baktiseraga Village can manage its  waste

The head of the Baktiseraga village headmaster, Gusti Putu Armada, also told a story. In 2019, the Governor of Bali issued Pergub Bali Number 47 of 2019. The substance of the Pergub, is to solve the waste problem in Bali.

Moreover, recently TPA has now caused new problems. The landfill is unable to accommodate the flow of waste brought in from villages and cities. For this reason, waste matters must be resolved at the source, namely in the village. This effort is of course carried out on intensive cooperation between the official village and the traditional village as well as with other parties in the village or urban areas.

How to solve the problem of waste at the source?

The pattern is easy. Starting from sources of waste, such as households, plastic, organic and residual waste are separated. "If the household has done the sorting. The garbage team just takes it, then processes it. Organic waste becomes organic fertilizer, recycled plastic waste, and residual waste can technically be removed by using a non-polluting combustion process. There is the equipment for that,” said Armada.

Well, since the beginning, since serving as a repairman, Gusti Putu Armada has thought of such patterns, techniques, and strategies. With the Governor's Regulation, this intention becomes even stronger to solve the waste problem in his village so that shipments to the TPA can be reduced.

However, the concept without infrastructure is certainly difficult to realize. Need machines, need tools, need human resources. And, what is urgently needed? Of course TPS3R, namely the Waste Management Site – Reuse Reuse Recycle. How to get it?

Since 2018, the Fleet Perbekel has coordinated with the central and regional governments to be able to build TPS3R in Baktiseraga. After Two years of struggle, in 2020 finally got access and were given the assistance of machines and equipment to operate TPS3R  to be able to process waste into fertilizer. "So, the only one in Buleleng, TPS3R is in Baktiseraga Village," he said.

From there,  better waste management began The waste management team consisting of 13 officers intensively educates residents to sort waste directly in the household. The officers just take the garbage in front of the residents' houses and then carry the garbage according to its type.

Plastic waste is taken to the waste bank, organic waste is taken to TPS3R to be processed into fertilizer. Well, what is taken to the transitional landfill and only residual waste? And then only the residual waste is transported by the Environmental Service (DLH) officers to the TPA.

The burden faced by the government, the waste team is much lighter, and of course also the burden for nature and the environment.

Before there was TPS3R, waste was piled up in a transition area in the Baktiseraga LC area. From the transition point, all waste is transported to the TPA. The transition site smells like garbage piles, and DLH trucks also have a heavy burden due to the large volume of waste that has to be transported to the landfill.

"Now everything is lighter. What is sent to the TPA is the oily residue, while plastic waste and organic waste have been completed at Baktiseraga, "said Armada.

Urban Farming

After producing a large amount of organic fertilizer, Fleet Perbekel then thought about its use. If Baktiseraga is located in a rural area that has a large area of ​​gardens and rice fields, it will certainly be easy to distribute organic fertilizer to residents. But, Body Service is ake advantage of vacant lands in the Baktiseraga area, especially in the LC area. In LC there is still a lot of vacant lands that have not been built by the owner. The land, with the permission of the owner, planted various types of vegetables which were fertilized using organic fertilizers.

style="font-family: arial; font-size: medium;">Urban farming takes the concept of a raised bed or a plant tub. For land boundaries using used bricks. The planting medium is made in the form of a rectangle with a size of about 1.5 meters x 4 meters each. The planting media is filled with several food plant seeds and family medicinal plants. Some residents are involved in plant care and are currently still in the seedling stage.

For land work to garden maintenance, his party involved villagers. The harvested food crops are distributed to villagers and sold by involving the PKK in Baktiseraga Village. Currently, Perbekel Fleet continues to approach owners of unproductive land to be used as food gardens using urban farming techniques, even with a rental system. “It means that we plan to rent it but the landowner doesn't allow it. As long as the land is not used, we are welcome to use it. Every harvest, we will share the harvest," said Armada.

an, how happy Perbekel Fleet and his team are because urban farming has had its first harvest, Friday, March 5, 2021. The harvest was even attended by Mrs. Buleleng Regent, Aries Sujati.

Governor's Concept

Regarding the Governor's Decree No. 381/03P/HK/2021 concerning Guidelines for Source-Based Waste Management in Villages/Kelurahan and Traditional Villages which was launched in Taro, Gianyar, the Fleet Perbekel sees the Governor's concept and desire as good. “Waste is handled at the source, in the village, sub-district , or traditional village. That is good. Baktiseraga has proven it," said Armada.

However, to make this management work across Bali, a strong network is needed. There are more than 600 official villages and 1,4000 traditional villages, so the implementation of the Pergub will vary and vary. Moreover, village conditions in Bali are very diverse. There are villages in urban areas such as Baktiseraga, there are villages that are actually in rural areas, so the problems are different.

 "If it's not serious, it's not based on management, without good political will, it's just a dream. If it is made clear it will take time, yes, it can be achieved for Bali, "said Armada.
