River Cleanup Citarum

Together for clean rivers!

The Citarum River is the longest and largest river in West Java, Indonesia. It is the third longest river in Java, after Bengawan Solo and Brantas. It has an important role in the life of the people of West Java, as it supports agriculture, water supply, fishery, industry, sewerage, and electricity. It is listed as one of the most polluted rivers in the world.

That's why we join forces with local action groups and support the cleanup of the river.

Join us and become part of the solution!

Plastic Fischer

PLASTIC FISCHER is a German company that develops cost-effective technologies with a focus on simplicity and effectiveness and implements them in polluted rivers in Indonesia, India and Vietnam.

The company opts for locally built and low-tech solutions, rather than high-tech imports. In this way, they stimulate local employment in the active areas. Their mission aligns very well with River Cleanup’s mission to clean locally and celebrate globally.
