Thirty tons of trash were removed from Kuta beach today, as the wet season begins to bring large quantities of waste to the beaches in Bali. 

“Today we deployed about 350 personnel […] to clean up the western beaches along Badung area,” Putu Suantara, an official from the Environment Agency (DHLK) in Badung regency, said today. 

The large volumes of waste have been washing up since Saturday night, with pile-ups consisting of twigs, logs, and plastic, according to the agency. 

Today’s trash removal reportedly required about 10 trucks, with these clean-ups expected to continue as waste proceeds to wash up on the beaches amid the rainy season. Since last weekend, around 50 tons of trash have so far been removed from the beaches in Kuta, Jimbaran, Legian, and Seminyak.
