REJECTED PLASTICS WASTE

There is several plastic waste that is considered " REJECTED" and sent straight to landfills or polluting the environment.
Rebriks is here to help create better environment.
We are here to create recycled building materials from rejected waste and a solution to Indonesia's plastic waste problem by transforming this plastic waste intorecycled building materials.

WHAT
  • MULTILAYARED PLASTICS (SACHET)
  • PLASTICS BAG
  • BUBLE WRAP
  • SOFT PLASTIC / PACKAGING

  • LOW RECYCLABILITY RATE
  • NO DEMAND
  • NO ECONOMIC VALUE
  • HIGHLY CONTRIBUTING LANDFILL AND OCEAN

1. Rarely recycled

There are a few projects to upscale sachet waste; they turned it into fashion products such as bags, wallets, pouches. We estimate that one fashion product usually uses up to 30 sachets. The next question would be, how many people use it?

2. Waste from Waste

The sachets are typically made up of laminated plastic and aluminum film. It’s a challenging waste to be recycled because it needs a chemical process to separate the plastic and aluminum. People in the plastic waste industry consider it as waste from waste. Hence, they usually burn it, throw it to landfill, or worse, end up in nature.

3. No economical value

On the contrary to other plastic wastes such as plastic bottles, PET bottles, HDPE, and LDPE plastics which have an economic value, there is no economic incentive for collecting sachets; not many companies recycle it, so no demand. Our discussion with the staff from a national waste bank in East Jakarta and Central Jakarta confirmed it. We found out that even the official waste management in Jakarta, doesn’t buy or sell sachets waste.

4. Polluting environment

For this reason, no one collects sachets waste. Left unmanaged, these sachets wastes contribute to flooding problems and pollute the ocean.
