Recycling Program for University Waste


In the recycling program, we initiated an action campaign that aims to educate and change the habit of classifying waste into several parts. #PilahSelectSampah is the campaign activity that we chose to increase brand awareness of the Academic Community of the IT Telkom Jakarta Campus. In this Campaign program we distribute four categories of waste, namely #PlasticWaste, #PaperWaste, MetalWaste, and #GlassWaste, in addition, this program allows all types of recycled goods (plastic, paper, glass, aluminum) to be placed in the same container, so that makes it easier for users. We get this distribution from the problems that exist in the campus environment, where there is still a lack of information regarding the proper sorting of waste in its place. The #PilahSelectSampah program will also make it easier for the Waste Station program that is held to be directly weighed into the Waste Bank and processed again into a work or can be recycled again.

Program to Reduce the Use of Paper and Plastic on Campus


  1. Telkom Institute of Technology Jakarta supports no plastic day to reduce plastic in the campus environment. No Plastic Days is the event where the campus community in Telkom Institute of Technology Jakarta is not allowed to use single-use plastics such as plastic baskets, transparent plastics, or others on the appointed day. If there is a violation, it will be subject to sanctions in the form of a fine of Rp. 5000,-. The event needs to be held 2 days a week, on Monday and Friday. With this program, Telkom Institute of Technology Jakarta can reduce CO2 emissions and save the world.
  2. Telkom Institute of Technology Jakarta has policies to reduce plastic where the campus community is required to use tumbler and cutlery sets in every occasion, such as in the meeting room, office, or in class. To support the policies, a water dispenser is provided so the campus community can refill the tumbler.
  3. Every event that organizes the distribution of souvenirs, is encouraged to provide souvenirs that can support the reduction of the use of plastic and paper, such as tumblers, shopping bags, cutlery sets, lunch boxes or other souvenirs that can be used repeatedly.
  4. Telkom Institute of Technology Jakarta has a policy of “Reduce paper in Final Project where writing the Final Project / Thesis uses alternating pages and for guidance final project via online use paperless, while offline guidance final project uses used paper.

Organic Waste Treatment


Organic waste in Telkom Institute of Technology Jakarta is mostly coming from leftovers and/or foliage/twigs. In the previous work, this waste is drained and then burned in the open space. This method has been causing other problems, i.e., air pollution. Furthermore, the remainder of the combustion can make the environment dirty and unhealthy. And it is also breaking the government rules.

For that reason, last year we cooperated with Telkom University to develop an incinerator for organic waste treatment in Telkom Institute of Technology Jakarta through the PEKERTI YPT program (No. KWR.0100/PNLT3/PPM-LIT/2020). This program involves lecturers and students from both parties. This year, we have already implemented an Incinerator to treat organic waste, and we hope this machine will have a good impact on our environment while treating waste.

The Incinerator has two main stages, centrifuge and spraying water. Those stages are to minimize the smoke so it becomes smokeless. Water filtration is equipped to the system. It will make the water from the spraying process reusable, so it saves water usage. For monitoring air quality before and after treatment, we deployed an air quality monitoring system to evaluate the air quality in indoor and outdoor due to waste burning.

Inorganic Waste Treatment

  1. Inorganic Waste treatment in Politecnico di Milano developed with AMSA (Milan Environmental Services Company) together with others companies, had foreseen the installation of an inorganic waste collector in which WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) could be gathered. The main scope of the project was to optimize, and generally improve, the recycle process of small WEEEs in order to recover valuable precious metals and rare earth elements, through a low impact pilot-project.
  2. pengolahan sampah anorganik di Institut Teknologi Telkom Jakarta (ITTJ) dikembangkan melalui program pengadaan Waste Station berkolaborasi dengan Bank Sampah Induk (BSI) Satu Hati Jakarta Barat. Cakupan utama pada Waste Station, untuk mengurangi dan melakukan daur ulang sampah. Sampah-sampah daur ulang dikumpulkan setiap hari senin bersama seluruh civitas akademi ITTJ. Sampah-sampah daur ulang tersebut diangkut oleh BSI untuk kemudian didaur ulang oleh vendor-vendor yang bekerjasama dengan BSI.
  3. Battery Project: the project, starts from the collaboration between the University, the Municipality of Milan and AMSA, has the aim to raise users and citizen awareness on WEEEs collection and recycling.

Toxic Waste Treatment

Electronic waste (e-waste) is classified into hazardous and toxic waste (B3) and refers to Indonesia Government Regulation number 101 of 2014 concerning Management of Toxic and Hazardous Waste due to the content in it.


Electronic waste management is included in the category of B3 waste management which must comply with standardized management methods of applicable laws, liquid waste is not directly discharged above the ground surface or is disposed of directly into drainage channels because it causes changes in soil fertility conditions and contamination of shallow groundwater (phreatic). ) which most of the people still consume ground water.

 Electronic waste management consists of several stages, including literature study, data collection, e-waste collection and storage, equipment preparation, and e-waste recycling.

  1. We did research to find out how to recycle e-waste
  2. We provide containers to store e-waste and collect existing e-waste
  3. we have prepared tools and materials to recycle e-waste
  4. we recycle e-waste into decorative items

Sewage Disposal


Wastewater from hand washing facilities in IT Telkom Jakarta are not channeled into ditches or rivers, but are downcycling so it could be used to water plants. Sewage disposal is treated by filtering the wastewater from the sink and then storing it in the big bucket. In that bucket, we accommodate wastewater and use palm fiber and active carbon to filter the waste water. There is a water tower to store the filtered clean water. Water from the big bucket that is already filtered is supplied to the water tower using an electric water pump. Clean water is ready to be used for watering flowers, grass and plants on the Institut Teknologi Telkom jakarta campus.
