2. 21-2-12: Waste Care Day Activities
February 21st is an important date in the history of solid waste in Indonesia. On February 21, 2005, a disaster occurred in Leuwigajah, Bandung, West Java which killed more than 150 people and injured hundreds of others. The victims were villagers living close to the TPA who were buried alive by thousands of tons of trash in the TPA incident at midnight. This incident was a very concerning experience due to the lack of attention paid to TPA operations and waste management in general.
The Ministry of Environment then declared February 21 as the day to care for waste in Indonesia. This is done to remind everyone how important waste management is in life. On February 21, 2012, InSWA with partners and volunteers carried out community service in three densely populated residential areas in Jakarta, namely Penjaringan, Petojo Utara, and Rawasari.
