There's no limit on how much plastic waste a person can bring in, though organizers encourage people to collect trash from their neighborhoods.
After spreading via word of mouth, the initiative had helped support about 40,000 families in 200 villages, while recycling nearly 600 tons (544 tonnes) of plastic waste, said Yasa.
"This program has been very well received by community members," said Yasa, who hopes to expand it to other provinces in Indonesia.
