The Jakarta Environment Agency deployed 300 city workers on Tuesday to clean the Gelora Bung Karno (GBK) Sports Complex in Senayan, Central Jakarta, to welcome the upcoming Asian Para Games that will take place from Oct. 6 to 13.
Over two days, all venues used for the Para Games will be cleaned.
Six tipper trucks, 16 pickup trucks, four street sweepers and a shovel loader will be used.
The agency's head Isnawa Adji said that to maintain cleanliness during the event, the agency would deploy workers and provide facilities such as toilet buses, street sweepers and waste trucks.
Besides the cleanup at GBK, the workers will also be on standby at other venues like the athletes village in Kemayoran, the Tanjung Priok Youth Arena, the Jaya Ancol Bowling Center, the Kelapa Gading Club, the Cempaka Putih Youth Arena, JI Expo, the Jakarta International Velodrome, Balai Sudirman and the POPKI Sport Building in Cibubur.
Isnawa asked Para Games spectators to help keep the venues clean by, for example, picking up trash left at the venues, as Asian Games spectators had done.
“Let’s prove once more that we are civilized people,” Isnawa said in his statement on Tuesday. (cal)
