 Jakarta. The city on Wednesday said it would install 210 closed-circuit television cameras at garbage dumps in a bid to better manage waste levels at sites around the capital.
“We are building a system to overcome the possibility of increasing garbage volume in Jakarta,” sanitation agency headSaptastri Ediningtyas Kusumadewi said.
Many Jakarta residents have poor access to public waste management and burn or dump their own trash. Garbage that the city does manage to collect gets held in over a thousand staging areas before trucks cart it out of the city.
These dumps tend to fill up quickly, and the new cameras would help the city decide where to send its trucks first, ensuring that fewer sites exceeded their capacities.
