Kuta Beach Clean-up Underway

Heavy Equipment Deployed to Remove Accumulated Trash Covering Bali's Kuta Bali Beachfront.

(1/25/2010) The Badung Regency government is working to remove the garbage and waste accumulating along Kuta beach over the past two weeks through the deployment of three pieces of heavy equipment along the popular seaside.

The head of the Hygiene and Public Parks Division (DKP) for Badung, Wayan Suteja, was quoted by the National News Agency Antara, saying: "Through the addition of heavy equipment we hope to remove the garbage that has gathered along the famous tourist beach of Kuta. Hopefully in two days the garbage will be a thing of the past."

He also praised the assistance to clean the beach being extended by local traders and security officials who are helping to gather the garbage into large piles for eventual removal to the public dump of Bali.

The head of the DKP was certain the beach would soon be clean, but warned: "Because the westerly winds are still blowing the possibility still exists that more garbage will wash ashore on this beach. But, if the sun shines and there's no strong wind, we can continue to clean the beach.

The garbage washed ashore in recent weeks has caused many vacationers to abandon their plans for a day on the sandy beach.
