Sugeng, 42, pointed to some sacks of trash piled on a wooden cart parked on a bridge in Rawajati subdistrict in Pancoran, South Jakarta.
The piles of trash, he said, were carried by a tricycle dump truck everyday.
“We used to throw trash in the river or burn it on the riverbank, but we don’t do that anymore after a massive flood hit the area earlier this year,” he told The Jakarta Post on Wednesday.
Sugeng was referring to the Ciliwung River. His neighborhood was among the most severely affected during a flood that hit the capital in the middle of January.
