PONTIANAK. (13/05). Waste bank program is initiated by RZ to promote clean and healthy lifestyle and create a comfortable environment. One of the waste banks established in Kalimantan is Borneo Waste Bank that is located in Tanjung Harapan, Banjar Serasan, Pontianak.
Nowadays, the cadres of Borneo Waste Bank have successfully produced several profitable products and earned additional income from waste such as fertilizer and handicraft. Its journey until today was not easy; the cadres of Borneo Waste Bank often get problems and obstacles such as lack of response from the community.
At the moment of National Mutual Cooperation Day, Borneo Waste Bank was appreciated by the local government of Pontianak due to it development and contribution toward environmental preservation and economical improvement.
The appreciation was delivered through the submission of 25 units of organic and inorganic trash can. Currently, Borneo Waste Bank has 71 customers or members who regularly deposit valuable waste. ***
