Tangerang (ANTARA News) - A Singaporean investor will soon invest Rp400 billion in the construction of a dump site at Cipeucang, Serpong subdistrict, South Tangerang municipality, Banten province, an official said.
Head of the South Tangerang Municipal Cleanliness, Park and Funeral Services Didi S Wijaya said the local authorities had prepared 2.4 hectares of land for the construction of the dump site.
The Singaporean investor and the local authorities were expected to sign a Memorandum of Understanding next week, he said.
He said the Singaporean investor would build the dump site using zero waste modern technology capable of processing 700 tons of garbage per day.
It would take four months to build the dump site, he said.
One of the benefits the Singaporean investor would gain from the dump site would be electrical power resulting from garbage processing, he said.(*)
