REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- The Jakarta provincial government has continued to clear garbage piling up on the north coast of Jakarta. The Jakarta Environment Agency has provided two heavy equipment --- excavator and spider types --- to move garbage in the mangrove conversation area of the Kali Adem River, Muara Angke, North Jakarta.

"An excavator is used to transport garbage from the mangrove conservation area, while trash at the Kali Adem Pier is transported by a heavy spider equipment," Deputy Head of the Jakarta Environment Agency Ali Maulana Hakim stated here on Tuesday.

Hakim further noted that garbage in the area had been cleared since Saturday, Mar 17. On Saturday, 19 tons of garbage was transported; 15 tons on Sunday, Mar 18; and 20 tons on Monday, Mar 19. "We have cleaned and transported a total of 54 tons of garbage from the area," he revealed.

Moreover, the heap of garbage was caused by the amount of trash carried by the waves from some maritime areas around Jakarta Bay, including 12 river mouths in Jakarta and its buffer city.

"Most of the household garbage was carried by the flowing water and reached the mangrove sea due to the blowing winds that caused huge waves," he stated.
