Waste management in Indonesia is still a problem that can not be handled properly. Waste reduction activities both in the community as waste producers and at the level of the area is still small, so the waste is disposed to the final processing place (TPA) while the landfill is very limited. Plastic waste is a waste that needs to be handled properly, because plastic waste is a waste that can not be broken down by microorganisms. Plastic waste can last for years causing environmental pollution. The design of a portable plastic waste counter machine aims to create a waste recycling tool, so that waste can be recycled into useful items and and create an environmental balance. To focus the manufacture of this crusher, the manufacture is limited to making non-organic waste composting machine design that is plastic waste. The design results are expected to be applied properly and can destroy the waste into granules so it can be reprocessed. The hope of this recycling process is to reduce the amount of plastic waste and make it an item that has economic value.
