i laugh every time i go shopping. wow, they know how to use a lot of plastic bags.
Thailand complains about all the waste. unfortunately they are a third world country with no concept of recycling.
in the us every grocery store has barrels to recycle plastics, bags,bottles and Styrofoam
housing garbage collection has 2 garbage barrels, one garbage and one recycle.
there is a total lack of trash barrels all over Bangkok, so what do they do, throw it on the ground or in the water.
the government blames the Styrofoam, the issue is they have no concept of recycling or an adequate amount of trash cans or barrels. the Styrofoam is not a problem it is the PEOPLE who do not care.
on the upper deck of every sky train station there is not one garbage bin, so people throw it and the same goes for the bts. the only trash receptacles are at the change window.
it is such a shame Bangkok is such a dirty, filthy city.
the government needs to get it together to teach and have facilities for recycling and trash.
instead they waste the peoples money on defunct items, buses, radar guns, explosive detectors, blimp, fire engines, air craft carrier, judges housing and many other items.
i live here and i call Bangkok my home but i am disappointed to see the lack of thought that goes on.
