Flooding is one of the natural phenomenon that often occurs in the capital Jakarta. Every rainy season, the state capital of Indonesia, Jakarta is often flooded and it happens repeatedly. The government has sought many ways, but the flood still occurs when the rains come and flood can not be resolved until now. It is common and difficult to overcome because there are many causes. The lack of awareness of Jakarta people abide by the rules should not be littering is one cause: many Jakarta people throw garbage in the river, there is also a dump in irrigation channels and there are still some people who throw garbage in an environment free of plastic waste.
A lack of awareness people in Jakarta to obey ban on throwing garbage into the river is one of the factors that make the flood often occur.

Although often be told and taped commercials do not litter, they still do that. This is what makes the city government to prevent flooding hardship in every rainy season.
Finally, the there is still people Jakarta person who carelessly discard plastic waste. They throw their food garbage wherever they are, such as in parks, on the highway. Maybe throw garbage culture in place that should not be ignored for those likely to cause the flood, although it slightly, it is still dangerous if it continues to happen in a long time range.
All of them are causes of the flood carried out because of lack of awareness of people in Jakarta for littering and if the flood occurs will cause lots of damage and losses due to the effects of the flood very much.
