  • R E G U L AT I O N Law No 18 Year 2008 On Solid Waste ManagementS ince 2003, community that long for clean and healthy environment is waiting for law on solid waste. The long wait is finally over. On April, 9th 2008, Draft Law(Rancangan Undang-undang- RUU) regarding Solid WasteManagement is approved by Plenary Meeting of DewanPerwakilan Rakyat (DPR) of Republic of Indonesia. The law that was academic paper of Environmental Ministryteam is Law No 18 Year 2008 on Solid Waste Management. TheLaw represents government effort in providing guarantee ofhealthy and clean life for the Indonesian.Background of Solid Waste Management Law Along with the growing population, solid waste is also con-tinues to increase. However, solid waste increment is not mere-ly on volume but also in type and quality. Meanwhile, currentsolid waste management method is still using the old final dis-posal (Tempat Pembuangan Akhir - TPA). Various problems present not just in matter of cleanlinessand environmental pollution, but also in social aspect of frictionamong community surrounding the TPA. Coarsely, almost allcities in Indonesia, no matter big or small, do not have goodsolid waste management. Most treatment is with the same management of collect-transport-dispose; a classic arrangement that should be endedbecause it was proven to have flaws and tends to have negativeeffect. Not just for the environment, but also for the people livingsurrounding TPA.

As known, so far, in managing solid waste, most communityis still using the approach method of collect-transport-dispose.The new paradigm sees solid waste as resources with economi-cally value, for example to be used as energy, compos, fertilizer,or industrial raw material.Solid Waste Management Responsibility In this Law, government is not the only one who responsibleon the solid waste problems. Community (household) and pri-vate sector (solid waste producer) are also obliged to managesolid waste accordingly with the Law. This arrangement can be found in Section 12 verse (1) saying"Everyone in managing solid waste of household and household-alike are obliged to reduce and manage solid waste in environ-mental-oriented method." While Section 13 says "Managers of housing area, commer-cial area, industrial area, special area, public facility, social faci-lity, and other facility are obliged to provide solid waste separa-tion facility." In other words, the Law forces community to recycle in solidwaste management. Those who do not manage their solid wastewill be sanctioned accordingly with the regulation. Other interesting thing regarding the Law is regarding regu-lations for producers, such as Section 14 and 15. As obligation forthe community, producers also obliged to manage packing of theproduct that cannot or difficult to be disintegrated. Governmentwill apply punishment and reward mechanism to the companiesthat violated and do not manage their solid waste. No exceptionto the community, both as individual or as community.

From the writers experience in conducting research, test, and analysis of the underground water, either physically, chemi- cally, or bacteriologic, underground water is very similar with the surface water in term of water capacity and quality. Well water capacity decreased quickly during the dry season, and cu- rrent quality is relatively polluted. In the picture we can see that well water is physically clear during sampling, however, after chemical test, the sample contains relatively high Iron (Fe) and Manganese (Mn), and not qualified as clean water/drinking water. Pollution indication, as far as the writer knows, especially from bacteriologic analysis, is always show numbers of Coli and Eschericia Coli bacteria. The same with chemical parameters that always show content of Iron (Fe) and Manganese (Mn), with different concentration depends on sampling locations. Absence of Iron and Manganese components in the water is usually followed by content of other chemical components that still in compliance with the standard of clean/drinking water, which means that the raw water is relatively not polluted in term of chemical.

Most of family waste, especially from inor-ganic type, is food plastic wrap that is consumed daily. As known by public, plastic is a substance that hard to dis-solve. While each family cannot be separated from plastic useeach day. Therefore, a solution is needed, not only for the con-sumer, but also for the producer to avoid or reduce the use ofplastic materials as wrapping for certain products.
