Taking Out the Trash

Bali News: Taking Out the Trash

(9/9/2011)

It’s just become more difficult for the citizens of Bali’s capital city of Denpasar to litter or throw trash away in an unregulated manner. Newly appointed “Jumali” or “Environment Marshals” are now on patrol prepared to impose penalties on those who carelessly abandon trash in local neighborhoods.

The Jumali are under the command of Denpasar’s Hygiene and Parks Department.

According to Beritabali.com, the environmental marshals went on patrol on Jalan Nangka Selatan on Monday, September 5, 2011, under the direct supervision of Ida Bagus Alit Indra, the official coordinator for Jumali in Denpasar.

A team of 35 marshals covered the areas surrounding Jalan Nangka Selatan seeking to catch people in the act of throwing their trash onto local roads. Describing the moment when caught in the act of throwing trash away on the streets, “Gus” Indra said, “when we tell them they are making a mess by throwing their trash away on the streets, the guilty party can only grin.”

The environment marshals issue letters of warnings and the take the names and identities of the offending local citizens while also confiscating  the offending party’s identity card or driver’s license.

When the Jumali caught Jaman Dardiri who lives on Jalan Noja, the officials seized his KTP (identity card) in front of a large group of local bystanders. His case and ID will now be forwarded to the local community chief (Kelian banjar).

“This is done so the Kelian will also know that they still have citizens in their locale who are carelessly discarding trash, thereby opening the way for education of wrongdoers by their neighbors, who may impose even stiffer community sanctions, as necessary,” explained Gus Indra.

One day earlier, the environmental marshals visited the Jalan Hayam Wuruk area of Denpasar where tens of residents were caught in the act of throwing their trash on the side of the road, in total disregard for local rules.

The chief of the Hygiene and Parks Department for Denpasar, Dewa Anom Sayoga, said the Jumali program is aimed at educating the public; making people aware of the importance of keeping their natural environment clean.

Explained Sayoga: “Bearing in mind our limitations, hopefully this efforts will accelerate the creations of a cleaner, healthier and greener Denpasar. What's even more important, is the public’s participation in increasing awareness helping the government achieve its programs of a ‘Clean and Green Denpasar.’”
