Metrobali.com reports that 1,700 cleaners will be dispatched to deal with the large amount of trash generated by “ogoh-ogoh” parades on the eve before Hari Nyepi, March 31, 2014.

The head of the cleaning and parks department, I Ketut Wisada, said on Monday, March 17. 2014, “Beginning from sweepers and up to including local environmental leaders, we will all be involved in cleaning up the trash after the parades.”

For the clean up after the parades Wisada said his teams would swing into action at 9:00 pm on March 30, 2013 and dump trucks would be mobilized starting at 11:00 pm.

“We will limit the clean up until 3:00 am to prevent cleaners from being rounded up by local enforcement teams (pecalang) who are deployed on Hari Raya Nyepi,” explained Wisada.

The Denpasar Cleaning and Parks
department will be working to make sure the streets are clean on the official day of silence. Officials are also asking the public to help clean up the refused generated by their participation in the ogoh-ogoh festivities.

Wisada has asked that members of the community burning the left over ogoh-ogoh do so in local cemeteries in order to keep the main streets clean and avoid traffic jams.

The public is reminded that streetlights will be turned off starting at 1:00 am on March 31, 2014 in anticipation of the “Day of Silence.”

53 staff will be deployed to shut down a total of 643 electrical panels in Denpasar, only to be turned on again on the morning of April 1, 2014.
