Piles of wood and plastic waste were scattered along Berawa Beach, North Kuta District, Badung Regency, Bali. From Saturday (11/12) to Monday (13/12), the cleaning staff collected about 400 tons of garbage.

“We have almost handled 400 tons, from early Saturday morning,” said Putu Suantara as Head of the Sanitation, Hazardous and Toxic Waste Management Division in Badung, Bali, on Monday (13/12).

Suantara said that the garbage had been stranded since last Friday (10/12) night. Then, it was handled by 350 workers assisted by the surrounding community and volunteers.

However, even though the beach has been cleaned up, the garbage still comes and there is still a lot of garbage floating around in the middle of the sea.

“Cleaning is still ongoing. So, we prioritize handling it because the volume is quite large. This handling has been going on since Saturday morning until now, is still ongoing and the garbage is still coming,” said Suantara.

Around 90 percent of the waste on the beach is wood.

Suantara said that based on previous experience, the garbage continues to arrive until March depending on the western wind.
