SINGARAJA, BALI EXPRESS – The waste problem is indeed quite complicated and seems to have no end. To help with waste management in rural areas, the government provides assistance in the form of TPS3R construction. In Buleleng, 24 TPS3Rs have been built. 10 units were built from APBN funds and 14 units from APBD. And this year Buleleng received a share for the construction of 3 TPS3R units from the RI Ministry of PUPR through the Bali Provincial Settlement Infrastructure Center. Each is located in Pejarakan Village, Patas Village and Temukus Village.

The remaining land is made into plots to function as urban farming.
Buleleng Regent Putu Agus Suradnyana during the handover of the Temukus Village TPS3R, Wednesday (11/8) said the village government and the village community must work together to take steps to socialize the waste issue. He hopes that this TPS3R can be utilized optimally to overcome the waste problem in Temukus Village. “Mr. Mekel, please make maximum use of this TPS3R in terms of waste processing. And for the management of KUSADARI this is a big responsibility. Behind that word, there is an implied meaning. So giving the name must be accompanied by a similar movement. Which is in line. Those who comply with regulations. Don’t do this because there is an appeal,” he said.
The head of Temukus Village Headquarters, I Made Karuna said that the use of TPS3R will later be followed by other innovations to support the existence of TPS3R.

This will also make village regulations or Perdes to strengthen the source-based waste sorting program. “After this function, we will make more innovations. To ensure that the community wants to sort out the waste, we have only done a few things. I have just formed a waste bank in each hamlet to sort their waste. .
Meanwhile, Nyoman Dedi Arimbawa said that the urban farming section will be filled with vegetable crops which can later be sold to the public with the concept of social benefits. “For the remaining land, urban farming will be made. Not only for planting, but also for compost testing. Is it worth it later to be sold. There is also a green zone where vegetables will be planted which can be sold to the community with the concept of social benefits. So does not benefit only one party.
For urban farming, we will fill with land kale, green vegetables, chilies and live pharmacies,” he said.
