Samui’s garbage problem is getting out of control

By Thai PBS

SAMUI: -- Garbage disposal problem in Samui Island is getting out of control as local authorities warn that within the next eight months, it’s 30-rai landfill now holding more than 200,000 tons of accumulated garbage will be full and is unable to handle any more daily garbage of 150-200 tons.

 

The warning came from Samui mayor Ramnate Jaikwang earlier this week as the garbage problem is getting worse.

 

Mayor Ramnate said at present the island’s 30-rai landfill already holds mountains of garbage of over 200,000 tons, while 150-200 tons keep coming in daily for disposal.

From the linked article:

 

He said that the main reason to remove the garbage out of Samui for disposal in mainland disposal plants because of growing protest by local residents.

 

Speaks volumes, eh?

Perhaps look at how bad garbage pollution is around UK, Europe and the rest of the world

That would have been a nice, and relevant idea for a post on a  THAI forum, don't you think?

In this case the corruption literally stinks and is rubbish.

But I am sure the almighty guys in green have a poem or fortuneteller to get this fixed.

The problem is getting worse all over Thailand.  My local dump has taken to burning rubbish almost daily, sending a foul smelling aroma throughout the neighbourhood.  Imagine how much more rubbish would be generated if the Thais started using the rubbish bins outside the 7/11s, instead of throwing it on the ground.

It's an island, so start by banning all plastic bags everywhere on the island.

...all the heavy handed taxes on hotels and anything "tourist" related is going.............  (apparently not to implement infrastructure, to accommodate the hordes holidaying on islands)
