Trash dump at Bantar Gebang

Jakarta’s biggest trash dump site …. Before being established in 1989, Bantar Gebang (Bekasi) was an area that was predominantly forest land. Over the years, an entire industry has been created around unwanted refuse. Around 4000 scavengers have found a daily job and a home at this trash dump site. They sell the recyclable trash to middle men and recycling companies. The garbage heaps at Bantar Gebang were used as an inspiration for our Ffrash logo.
