Asep Kuswanto (Head of the Jakarta Environment Office), stated that the orange troops can be deployed quickly to the field if necessary.
Kuswanto observed that the number of staff needed to be dispatched was lower than in the year before the COVID-19 epidemic, which affected around seven thousand people. This was due to the restrictions placed on New Year parties and celebrations by the government.
Because it could attract large crowds, they placed restrictions on parties and celebrations in public areas.

The 1,260 officers are comprised of garbage truck drivers, crews, as well as teams that picked up trash.
“In every sub-district we send at least 30 officers to be ready. Kuswanto said that in addition to personnel from City Administration Sub-Department, and the Sub-district Acting Units of Environment, we also deploy officers and staff from the Water Agency’s Cleaning Unit to aid and cooperate with Village Public Facility Handler.”
His administration also provides a way for people to complain about trash handling. Other than the Jaki Application, the public may also report to the Environment Office and the Jakarta Provincial Government.
