The official 3RI Pilot Projects have been selected by the Corporate Members to test and implement the 3RI solutions. Other pilots will be selected through an open call for external projects.

PROJECT STOP, Muncar, Indonesia

Muncar is coastal fishing community in Banyuwangi, Indonesia. With minimal waste services in place, the majority of citizens are forced to dump their waste directly into the environment. Muncar was chosen as the first PROJECT STOP location due to the seriousness of the challenge, coupled with strong leadership and environmental commitment at national, regency and local levels.

According to a recent community survey, households here generate roughly 40 tons of waste per day, while 90% of the community is without waste services. Through Project STOP, an increasing number of Muncar households and business are receiving waste collection and recycling processing, some for the first time.

Impact:

  • More than 30,000 people served with waste management collection (most for the first time)

  • 60 full time jobs created

  • 1,800 tons of waste (of which 300 tons of plastic) collected

Our Goal: Zero leakage of waste into the environment, grow local employment and provide replicable solutions and innovations for other cities.

PROJECT RECICLAR EN CAJA

Medellin, Colombia

The project aims to increase the collection of UBC in Medellin and surrounding areas. Apart from its tangible environmental impact the project also seeks to raise awareness about recyclability locally and support the waste pickers in improving their livelihoods. The project works with two waste pickers’ associations: Corpoccidente and COCJAN

Main Goals:

  • To develop local sustainable recycling value chain.

  • To design and develop local collection value chain.

  • To provide the participating waste picker associations with new equipment.

  • To raise awareness about recycling among consumers and boost the effectiveness of waste collection (via mobile app connecting local consumers with waste pickers to facilitate collection of waste).
