Santa’s Little Helpers are Balinese

Beritabali.com Reports a New Twist on an Old Tale Told Each December in Bali


(1/4/2014)

As reported by Balidiscovery.com [Wretched Refuse of Our Teaming Shores], the iconic Kuta beachside is being covered by unwanted debris in large quantities brought to the beach from distant parts of Indonesian by westerly winds.

Despite a daily delivery of tons of new trash on each morning’s tide, workers from the Badung Parks Division (DKP) are working overtime to keep the beachside relatively clean. Quick Response Units (URC) and land movers are on continual duty on the beach gathering the refuse to be hauled away to local rubbish dumps.

The chief of the DKP for Badung, Putu Eka Merthawan, speaking while giving instruction to clean up crews on Christmas Day, said: “This (the trash) is cyclical and a yearly part of our work agenda. Based on the experience of the last two years, we are ready to face this natural phenomenon.”

Santa Lends a Hand

In keeping with the Festive Season, the Quick Response Teams from the Park’s Division adorned themselves in Santa Claus costumes, pausing in their work to distribute candy to children drawn to watch the clean up

At present five loaders, one super-loader and two sweeping units are busily cleaning the beach and moving trash to 11 dump trucks deployed to carry the debris away from the beach.

36 workers from the Park Division work each day from 7:00 am until 7:00 pm, pausing only when high wave conditions momentarily prevent clean up activities.

Eka Marthawan said conditions on the beach this year are not as severe as two years ago when an estimated 125 tons washed ashore each day. The rubbish count to date this year has averaged only 6 tons a day.

The DKP has also place communication specialists on the beach to communicate to tourists in English and Indonesian regarding the natural cycle of trash washing ashore on Kuta Beach and the efforts underway to alleviate the problem.

And while they’re explaining the problem to visiting tourist, DKP officials are donning Santa outfits, distributing candies and wishing a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2014.
