The satisfaction of seeing a mess thoroughly cleaned up is undeniable.
The footage condenses five clean-ups that took a total of 14 hours into a clip lasting just one minute.
And it has left social media users spellbound in their hundreds of thousands.
Sungai Watch posted the clip to its Instagram page, where it has garnered over 768,000 views at the time of writing.
The first, third and fifth clips were filmed on the Indonesian island of Java and the second and fourth clips on the island of Bali.
Sungai Watch co-founder Kelly Bencheghib revealed to MailOnline Travel that the clean-ups the timelapse shows removed 7,682kg (7.6 tonnes) of non-organic waste from the waterways.
Kelly runs Sungai Watch with her siblings Gary, 29, and Sam, 24.
