Beritabali.com reports that the change of year has brought large piles of trash to Kuta’s beaches, washed ashore by seasonal wind patterns.

Large piles of flotsam, jetsam and general trash washing onto Kuta’s beaches have compelled officers from the Hygiene and Parks Department in cooperation with beach workers, lifeguards and beach traders to join forces clean the long stretch of beach in Kuta.

“During the season of westerly winds rubbish is blown ashore, we have deployed 12 cleaning staff who continually gather the accumulating debris. We are concentrating our efforts beginning from the border bewtween Legian and Kuta down to the Bali Garden Hotel,” explained the chief of the Quick Response Team from the Hygiene and Park Service Department of Badung, Gusti Keut Atawa on December 30, 2011.

Observations of the beach conducted in front of the Hard Rock Hotel revealed two green garbage trucks and two front-loaders permanently assigned to collect and remove beach debris. The clean up activities has also caught the attention of foreign tourists walking along the beach.

“The piles of trash along the beach are removed to an accumulation point near the Chinese Cemetery in Tuban. From there, another fleet of trucks brings the rubbish to the Suwung rubbish dump,” explained Astawa,

In a single day, the trash, largely comprised of wooden debris mixed with plastic, fills 20 trucks.

“The fast response team’s main goal is to accumulate and remove the debris washing ashore; we do not want piles of rubbish to become a source of complaints from Bali’s tourist visitors,” said Astawa.

Separately, the Chairman of the Local Security Force of Kuta Beach, I Gusti Ngurah Tresna said: “The trash that has washed ashore was brought to Bali by westerly winds. This is a yearly phenomenon. We always experience this invasion of debris.”

He added: “Tourists are certainly upset, moreover, several tourists have actually joined in to help collect the rubbish. Because this is a natural occurrence, we worked together with all components of the community. What’s important is the handling (of the rubbish) by us in our capacity as the joint management of the Hygeine and Park Services for Badung. If there’s no rain or westerly winds, the beach will be clean tomorrow."
