Waste has become a major problem. Even the flood was one of the causes is carelessly discarded trash. In fact, even from your own home we can help manage waste.

"If the household level, the easiest is rubbish sorted (separated between organic waste, inorganic and plastic)," said Hendra Aquan, from Green Transformation environmentalist community, when met on the sidelines of a discussion on 'Being Part of the Next Generation the Joy of Managing Trash to Keep the Earth 'in GOR Bulungan, Jl Bulungan, Jakarta, Monday (02/04/2013).

Once sorted, you can submit it to the junk that manage and recycle waste, such as plastic or garbage collectors Garbage Bank. Because according to Hendra, not easy to process plastic waste for the home, except for recycled creations.

The opinion was also shared by Gabriel Andari Kristanto, Lecturer Environmental Engineering from the University of Indonesia. According to him, the separated waste will be more beneficial because of the waste into a cleaner, better quality, as well as processing and recycling will become easier.

"When the garbage is mixed with a bottle of Aqua diapers, bottle will be dirty. With sort them, we will facilitate the scavengers. Trash becomes cleaner, scavengers may eat better, live in a better place. So there is a sense of humanity," said a woman who is familiar Andari is addressed.

For organic waste, Hendra advised to recycle it into compost, which can be done by making a hole infiltration biopori when you still have the land at home or by Takakura, the composting process in the home.

Hole biopori infiltration was made into a cylindrical hole in the ground with a diameter of 10 cm and a depth of about 100 cm or no more than the depth of groundwater.

Later these holes filled by organic waste to encourage the formation of biopori, the small tunnel-shaped pores formed by soil fauna activity or plant roots. In addition to process organic waste, leach pit biopori can also prevent flooding.

While Takakura can be done in the house. How to make it, obviously Hendra, to include organic waste into the trash-covered husk. The organic waste is then mixed with compost and covered with cardboard.

Rice husk is used to absorb odors from garbage decomposes. Compost serves as a starter, because in the finished compost decomposing bacteria are used as starter for a new waste processing. While cardboard is used to maintain temperature and keep warm.

According to Hendra, it takes about 2 to 3 weeks to make organic waste into compost, depending on environmental conditions and waste.

"The technology is simple and can be applied," Hendra closed.
