Clean Up Jakarta Day is an annual event that brings together communities and volunteers through gotong royong in the spirit of a cleaner Jakarta.
The aim of Clean Up Jakarta Day is to raise awareness of the problem of rubbish and littering in Jakarta, as well as the need for recycling – starting with us as individuals, at home and at the office. Our vision is that every day will be Clean Up Jakarta Day, as we shape conscious and responsible citizens for a better Jakarta.
The fifth annual Clean Up Jakarta Day took place on Sunday October 8th 2017, and nearly 30,000 volunteers turned up, bright and early, to pick up rubbish and clean up Jakarta together. Volunteers separated recyclable from non-recyclable waste as they cleaned at 72 locations around the city.
Our campaign is carried out by volunteers (you!), and without your support and action Clean Up Jakarta Day would not be possible.
Clean Up Jakarta Day 2018 will be held on the same day as the first World Cleanup Day on Saturday September 15, 2018!
