INDONESIA: Citarum River cleanup
The project started in 2021 with the site’s designation at Saguling Cihampelas, within the operational area of the local NGO Bening Saguling Foundation (BSF).
RiverRecycle is responsible for the installation of their solar-powered river cleaning technology. The community outreach is organized by Greeneration Foundation with education on responsible waste management at household and village levels and awareness of environmental protection. Waste4Change supplies complete waste sorting and processing operations in the frame of the 3R (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle).
BSF became the local site partner to the project, supporting the waste collection site and the local workforce needed for RR, GF, and W4C operations. The project currently employs 15 people as operational personnel and provides income for more than 30 locals involved in activities related to the project.
