Price of Products Recycle More Expensive, Plastic Recycler: Not only in Indonesia, but also in Europe
Reporting from the Plastic Recycling Update in 2020, “Indonesia's economic viability is still limited, leaving companies with little incentive to make a meaningful contribution to the plastic recycling supply chain”.
In addition, Willy hopes that the government will provide support for the industrial sector by lowering the VAT price charged to plastic recyclers. Because the price of VAT is high and uneven, causing an imbalance with the cost benefits obtained, it can kill this industry. “The government should not apply enforcement unevenly. The imposition of VAT is applied from the bottom (read: collectors/grinders) but conditions do not allow paying taxes so it is thrown to the top actors (read: processors/producers)” explained Willy ending the sharing session with the ADUPI Institution.
