According to Dian, the Bersemi Village program has had an economic, social and environmental impact that is felt directly by the community. Departing from the chronic waste handling problem in their environment, Shell Indonesia together with several residents took the initiative to process waste to become a source of additional income for the villagers.
“Through various coaching and training, slowly the 3R (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) behavior or reduce, reuse, and recycle waste slowly becomes a culture among residents of Segara Makmur, Pantai Makmur, and Samudera Jaya Villages who participate in this program. , “He added.
The Bersemi Village Program trains and fosters residents in managing organic waste into fertilizer, utilizing land for agriculture, making and selling snacks from processed food plants on their land, and utilizing plastic waste to start handicraft micro businesses and produce fuel oil.

Currently, added Dian, more than 10 micro enterprises have been born from the waste management program and more than 200 families who benefit socially, economically and environmentally.
