The processing and management of waste is an on-going program within Indonesia. Currently there are only 11 cities which have sewage treatment plants – Batam, Balikpapan, Banjarmasin, Bandung, Cirebon, Jakarta, Medan, Prapat, Surakarta, Tangerang, and Yogyakarta. Development of further plants is on-going throughout the country. In Indonesia, waste management is carried out by both commercial and government owned companies. Primarily, waste is collected locally by individuals, then taken to a staging area where it is loaded onto a truck. From this point it is then taken to a Tempat Pembuangan Akhir (TPA) or landfill where it is dumped.

INDONESIAN REGULATION ON B3 CLASS WASTE DISPOSAL & MANAGEMENT
As Indonesia is close to finalizing their revised chemicals regulation, we would like to give you a brief introduction to how industrial chemicals are currently regulated in Indonesia and what expected changes are to be included in revised government regulation for hazardous and toxic substances (B3).
In Indonesia as defined in Law 32 in 2009 on the Protection and Management of the Environment, hazardous and toxic waste (B3) is a substance, energy, and / or other components due to the nature, concentration and / or amount, either directly or indirectly, can pollute, damage the environment, and / or can harm the environment, health, survival of humans and other living organisms.
The next Dangerous and Toxic Material abbreviated as B3 is a substance, energy, and/or component others which due to the nature, concentration, and/or amount, either directly or indirectly directly, can pollute and/or damage environment, and/or endanger the environment life, health, and human survival and other living things.
Batteries and the contained accumulators must not be disposed of with regular household waste, as they may contain pollutants or heavy metals that can damage the environment and health if disposed of improperly. Most batteries and accumulators are therefore marked with a crossed-out wheeled bin and the chemical name of the pollutant they contain. In order to dispose of used batteries and accumulators in an environmentally friendly manner, they must be taken to a so-called recycling center (public waste disposal service provider) or to the local trade for professional recycling.
|Cd – battery contains cadmium|
Pb – battery contains lead
Hg – battery contains mercury
WHAT YOU CAN DO
Since 1984 until now, battery manufacturers have reduced levels of mercury and in batteries. You should opt for batteries that have a low mercury content, even if you can choose one that contains no mercury at all.
Second, use rechargeable batteries as it can be used many times, and that means less battery waste. But remember, although more efficient, these rechargeable batteries are generally made of nickel-cadmium. Well, because it is made of nickel-cadmium, battery waste must still be disposed of in a special place.
Third, find a special place to dispose of batteries, especially those containing cadmium, lithium and mercury. Although some other batteries are allowed to be disposed of in the trash, it is better if they are disposed of in a special container. By disposing of batteries in their proper place, we also save the earth’s resources because battery packs can be reused by factories to make new batteries
