• A Seasonal Tide of Unsightly Trash

    Badung Regency Park Officials Working Overtime to Remove Seasonal Onslaught of Trash and Debris along Kuta Beach


    In what is an annual inundation of trash, Bali’s famous beachfront at Kuta receive a daily wash up of flotsam and jetsam brought to the Island’s shores by prevailing westerly winds.

    As reported by Beritabali.com, public workers daily haul away tons of trash that have washed ashore, only to start all over again the following day removing a new onslaught of trash that has accumulated over the preceding night.

    A large group of beach cleaners from the Public Hygiene and Parks Division (DKP) for Badung Regency, aided by front-end loaders and dump trucks, work non-stop to move trash away from the beach.

    Eager to keep the beachfront looking clean and tidy, local small business owners and tourist volunteers pitch in to help clear away the accumulated trash.

    Tourists, particularly domestic tourists, are undeterred by the seasonal wash up of trash and debris. One domestic tourist, Yusuf, said on December 26, 2017: “Bothered (by the trash)? Of course, we are bothered. But we still come to Kuta because if you don’t visit Kuta you can’t really say you’ve been to Bali.”

    Meanwhile, local officials are installing banners explaining to the public that the accumulation of trash and debris on Kuta beach is seasonal phenomenon that occurs each year between the months of October and April.
