Waste Reduction Potential in SAMTAMA Program Implementation (Study Case: RT 10/RW 03 Cempaka Putih Timur)

Yemima Marnalita Hasibuan, Filson Maratur Sidjabat

Abstract: Waste is one of the big problems often faced by metropolitan cities like DKI Jakarta. The Jakarta Environment Agency's research stated that DKI Jakarta produces 7500-tons of waste per day with 60.5% coming from residential. Therefore, the DKI Jakarta government initiated the Sampah Tanggung Jawab Bersama (SAMTAMA) to mobilize residential people to manage waste from its source at certain locations as a pilot, one of locations is RT 10 / RW 03 Cempaka Putih Timur. RT 10 / RW 03 Cempaka Putih Timur is the RT that is considered optimal in implement the SAMTAMA program. Based on this, the objectives of this study are: (1) to find the existing condition of SAMTAMA program; (2) to measure the waste generation, composition, and reduction potential in the implementation of SAMTAMA program. The method implemented in measuring using SNI 19-3964-1994 which is carried out for 8 consecutive days. Waste composition is classified based on SNI 19-3964-1995, supplemented with components of B3 waste and diapers. The results of the analysis show that the average of waste generation is 14.99 kg/day where the treated waste is 11.36 kg/day and the untreated or residual waste is 3.63 kg/day with the largest composition is food waste with 10.66 kg/day (71%). With SAMTAMA Program implementation, the waste potential reduction can reach 0.019 kg/day/person.
