why do they want to burn everything

Recommended Posts

i see every year the still want to burn the rice waste after harvest 

my father grew wheat 50yrs ago  and were all told to stop burning waste 

the soil benefited more if you plow the waste back into the soil which has been proven over the years

the people still want to burn there rubbish and plastic around my area

maybe a belief about burning

The damage they are doing to people's health is incalculable. 

What out in the countryside? No trash collection services.

More covncerned by vehicle emissions, plent of the rural vehicles are horrendously polluting.

I bought a black, blue and red bin for my house. 12 people in the house by the way including kids.

I told them green for plastic, red for metal and black for general waste. I came back from offshore all bins full and mixed.

We have the local scrap man who takes metal, plastic and cardboard.

Family happy to go thru the trash and separate it by hand.

Given up. Haha.

Fire, burning things, gives people the illusion of power. Everybody likes that feeling of power, so burn your rubbish and what not and feel good about life. :stoner:

Burning all ypur plastic waste legal. Having a smoke on the beach illegal and enforceable by three different agencies. Hmm makes sense. 


Burning of plastic is illegal....but who enforces the law?

They will however enforce the smoking law right into the hip pocket.

 Legal and unenforced is the same thing.

i live 130 ks from udon thani on my farm, 15 ks  out of si that, we have a regular garbage truck come every 10 days to our village of 83 houses, bins supplied  and  thengoes to all the surrounding villages, three recycelers come to take all the plastic, bottles and everything else that does not go in the bin supplied by the si that council, no body burns here anymore, we have just ploughed the waste back in from the rice harvest and the waste from the rice machine this year is going to grow mushrooms, we stripped the cane one month ago and it is now ready to cut without burning, no cane burning at all  around here yet, the stars  this morning were as  bright and clear as anything that i have seen in the middle of aus, i live in paradise, thais are learning!

That's wonderful.

 

I'm really encouraged to read this.

 

Can I ask some details please?

 

Are the bins provided by the Council free?

Do you mean the local OrBorTor or other 'council'?

Is the garbage truck also a supplied by the local government, or a private firm?

Are the recyclers government or private?

 

Your answers may help me to have another go at the authorities in my area too.
