SAMARINDA. As a form of awareness toward environmental cleanliness and preservation, RZ established waste bank in many ICD throughout Indonesia. One of them is located in Sidodadi ICD, Samarinda, named Sidodadi Waste Bank.
To run the bank, RZ invites local residents to get involved and contribute by depositing inorganic waste and actively managing the bank. In addition, RZ also introduce waste management procedures namely Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle (3R) to them.
