Waste Volume Up 30 Percent After Galungan in Denpasar
jpnn.com, DENPASAR - The recent celebration of Galungan in Bali has led to an increasing volume of organic waste in Denpasar city.
Usually, on a normal day, the waste production in Denpasar is around 800-950 tons spread over dozens of temporary disposal sites (TPS).
The day after Galungan Day, Thursday (11/11), the Denpasar Environment and Cleanliness Agency (DLHK) said that the volume of waste increased by 20-30 percent.
The agency's head, Ida Bagus Putra Wibawa, said that the volume of waste often increased during religious holidays.
"We remain on standby at any time to ensure the cleanliness of Denpasar," said Ida.
There are at least 13 polling stations and 1,420 cleaning staff on duty with 40 trucks, as well as three-wheeled motorcycles, in each sub-district and village to handle the waste surge.
Ida emphasized that the waste surge was dominated by organic waste, which was mostly left over from janur arrangements.
He appealed to the public to take part in minimizing the amount of waste during the holidays.
