Book Title:Scavengers, Recyclers, and Solutions for Solid Waste Management in Indonesia
Author(s):Sicular, Daniel T
Publisher Name:Center for Southeast Asian Studies, University of California
Place of Publication:Berkeley, Calif.
Date of Publication:1992
Annotation:Based on research conducted in Bandung between 1984–1985, Sicular discusses the function and implications of urban scavenging as an efficient and undervalued form of solid waste management that might well be incorporated into the formal waste management system of the Indonesian state. By collecting, sorting, and selling refuse to industries, scavengers produce valuable industrial materials without harming the environment, a service which could become the basis for a new, decentralized system of waste recovery and recycling.
