Since 2012, the village of Padangtegal in Bali Indonesia has instructed its residents to sort out their garbage before disposal.
Wati does this every day.
"When I was little, trees were everywhere.We used to burn our garbage but no longer."
"Now we live in modern era."
"We are advised to sort out our garbage based on organic and non-organic category."
Padangtegal village is situated at the heart of the popular tourist destination of Ubud
with only 607 families living there.
The village may be small but it produces a great amount of waste.
So local authorities built this 4,000 square meter compost house owned by the village.
The compost center only manages waste in Padangtegal village.
Only families with their waste sorted out into organic and unorganic groups get collected.
Then we process the organic waste in the compost.
Its not the law everywhere and it is a bit of a chore.
Villages not only spend time and energy sorting out their waste but they also pay a six-dollar fee each month for garbage collection.
So why do they participate, well simply because the villa chief tells them to.
"My name is Imadigandra, the chief of Padangtegal village.
"In Bali, the village chief is the highest ranked leader in the village elected democratically by its people."
"Whatever decided by the chief is a decision that the people must comply to."
"This is the eminence of our custom."
Balinese generally reside in traditional villages which have their very own regulations known locally as Pararem and Aoigaway.
Whatever the villa chief says is the law of land.
"If they dont sort the waste out, their garbage wont be picked up."
Local officials say that well over half of all the garbage the island produces is organic.
So most of it can be composted.
Practically that means that every day, this village transforms organic waste into one cubic meter of compost.
The compost is then sold to local farmers and businesses.
