BerichtOnderwerp: Workers urged to collect garbage on Fridays   za 15 nov 2014 - 22:13

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta, Saturday November 15 2014,

Inspired by Bandung, the Jakarta administration plans to launch a new movement in which all workers, including employees in the city administration, will be encouraged to collect garbage in their local areas every Friday.

Acting governor Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama said after meeting with the Sanitation Agency on Friday that the program would be launched on Nov 22.

“We have many civil servants, students, city-owned enterprises staff and private employees. Besides doing exercise, we want people to collect garbage around their neighborhoods every Friday,” he said.

Ahok said the activity would last for 30 minutes. “When you walk and see garbage, you must pick it up,” he said.

He said the so-called Bersih Nyok movement, concerned about cleanliness in the capital, would also actively promote the program.

Ahok said he wanted to take stern action against residents caught littering. “We have to install CCTV and impose severe sanctions,” he said, adding that subdistrict and district heads should also actively call on their residents to routinely collect garbage in their own areas.

The Sanitation Agency has said it will add more public trash bins.

(Excellent idea bung Ahok, now come up with something similar to clean up the waterways and rivers and you have put your stamp for the betterment of Jakarta on Jakarta! May I suggest for you to utilize the klojohs from the FPI for that job? With all due respect that is!)
