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 third Clean Up Jakarta Day took place on Sunday October 18th 2015, and 10,000+ 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 37 locations around the city, collecting a total of over 100 tonnes of rubbish in the space of two hours.
Our campaign is carried out by volunteers (you!), and without your support and action Clean Up Jakarta Day would not be possible.
