Abstract

Industrialization of the Recycling Industry in Indonesia via a Government-Industry Partnership Andrew Waite Northern Illinois University Abstract Indonesia lacks a unified and effective Solid Waste Management (SWM) system which has perpetuated a massive problem with plastic pollution. A recycling industry is developing to process the plastic but lacks government support, necessitates a cultural relationship change towards waste, and an underutilized Informal Recycling Sector (IRS). This paper argues that Indonesia must integrate the recycling industry with the public SWM in order to overcome its massive plastic pollution crisis. The IRS needs to be organized, provided with capital, and integrated into the SWM for the industry to become industrialized. Through this public-private partnership involving the IRS the recycling collection rates will increase, overall SWM system costs will decrease, and the welfare of the IRS workers will improve.
