Taksu Green Warriors

Upon commencing operations, representatives from all departments formed the Green Warriors to minimize environmental impacts through controlled monitoring and goal setting to reduce the consumption of electricity and water. In cooperation with a professional waste management firm, the volume is continuously being reduced. They work closely with NGOs, particularly Plastic Free Bali and Bali Recycling, as well as Putra Bangsa School of Tourism to keep rivers healthy.

Green Warrior Excursion to Bali Recycling

Taksu’s eco-focused team of dedicated warriors visited the Bali Recycling waste management site on Wednesday, July 25 to better understand how the waste collected from Taksu is measured, stored and safely handled. Bali Recycling provides a monthly report detailing the amount of rubbish by category collected, so that all departments can identify ways to reduce the amount of garbage created. They also learned more about hazardous wastes such as light bulbs, paints and solvents, plus electronic waste like hand phones, computers, printers, TVs, etc which contain dangerous metals and materials. These have to be dismantled and divided into categories for safe recycling and processing.
