Abstract

Kampung Nambo is one of the densest kampung in South Tangerang, Banten Province, Indonesia. This kampung has direct boundary to the state-owned Landfill, the Cipeucang Landfill. Apart of the mountainous waste panoramas and the continuous odours that can be seen and smelled all day from the kampung, this kampung has beautiful landscape scenery and many potential to develop further towards a livable kampung.
