When heavy rains left large swaths of Jakarta inundated in filthy brown water, a large portion of the blame went to the sheer amount of trash clogging up the city’s waterways and drains, leaving the nation’s capital powerless to channel away rainwater quickly enough to prevent flooding.
A resident of Cawang in East Jakarta, one of the worst-hit areas, says he frequently sees residents dumping their trash in the river next to their homes.
“I always try to tell them that it’s not good for the environment, but they don’t listen,” he says, asking not to be identified.
“Most of my neighbors do the same. They do things without thinking of the consequences.”
