PT Repal International Indonesia turns waste to pallets. Nonetheless, not all waste are eligible to be processed to become pallets. Only some types of plastics are best to be turned into pallets. If only all the waste are already sorted, and separated between the organics, plastic types, and other materials, it will be much easier to start a recycling process. Therefore, waste management is a key to a more sustainable waste solution.
