Bali governor Made Mangku Pastika is calling on hotels and restaurants located along Bali’s Kuta Beach to demonstrate greater concern in dealing with with the trash and debris currently washing ashore in great quantities that has made the iconic beachfront an eyesore and negatively impacted the visitor experience of tourists traveling to Bali.

Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, the Governor said on Sunday, December 29, 2013, while joining a clean up of Kuta beach, said: “Please help the cleaning crews, don’t just sit back and take profits, pick up some trash.”

The governor does not see trash along Kuta beach as the fault of any specific individual or party, but as a natural cycle of nature that happens in Bali every December until February.

“Because of this, all parties must participate (in the clean up), especially hotels and restaurants along Kuta Beach,” the Governor added.

Meanwhile, the head of Hygiene and Parks Department (DKP-Badung) for the Badung regency, I Putu Eka Mathawan, says his office has deployed “Fast Reaction Units" to deal with the removal of the trash washing up on Bali’s shores.

The Units assigned to clean Kuta Beach comprises 36 personnel, 11 rubbish trucks, 5 loaders and 2 barber surf rake.

The clean up units will stay on the beach until the season ends and the condition of the beach returns to normal.

Joining the paid civil servants in the beach clean up are local environmental activists, local village members and visiting tourists.
