Establishing a Wasteless Homeland: IoT’s Contribution in Indonesia’s Waste Management Industry

Indonesia‘s waste management issue has been going on for years. The nation's Ministry of Environment and Forestry has stated that Indonesia generates roughly 175.000 tonnes of trash each day, or equivalent to 64 million tonnes of trash each year. In Bandung, the waste problem got so bad the army had to help clean things up. Fortunately, the government has started a number of efforts to resolve the country’s waste issue, aiming to have 70% decrease in 2025. How can IoT and businesses help and be a crucial part of it?

In the form of organic and non-organic, tons of waste is generated on a daily basis. However, waste management companies are able to utilize tons of waste and transform them into profit, helping the environment as well as their own business operation. Having successfully penetrated many business sectors, this is where IoT comes in.

Data-driven Recycling Products

IoT-supported devices have the ability to send and receive data accurately in real-time. With multiple connected devices and applications, each company and institution in the waste management industry is now able to establish an interaction. This collaboration opens up new possibilities of creating waste problem-solving solutions, like smart bins and data-driven trash collection events for waste/recycling vendors.

Sensors and Route Optimization

IoT can increase the effectiveness of garbage collection trips. By combining data obtained from sensors and route optimization, waste management companies can reduce travel times, costs and fuel expenditures. In Indonesia, Telkomsel IoT’s FleetSight solution offers said benefits. FleetSight enables waste management companies to get insights, better productivity and efficiency, anywhere, anytime.

Robust Monitoring System

Manually keeping track of vehicles and routes is expensive and time-consuming. By acquiring an information-sharing monitoring system, waste management companies can watch over the whole operation. Through the use of sensors and devices the system provides, they can now get asset visibility, monitor truck fullness and reduce operational cost.

The finish line of IoT in the waste management industry is producing more efficient operation and giving bigger benefits to both businesses and citizens. Moreover, IoT solutions will provide valuable insights on waste generation and how to fully manage that issue. Supported by IoT’s involvement and benefits, this is a huge opportunity for those who plan to start a waste management company in 2019.
