Samui’s garbage problem is getting out of control

Recommended Posts

Come on, guys.  "It's getting worse". Official says they have 8 months before a catastrophy. Why worry now. We have 8 months to think about it. Maybe have a meeting.

They need to form a committee first.

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

 

So where were you Mr Mayor...when it was "getting bad". then got......"bad".....then went to "really bad"......did you not realise that garbage is produced everyday...so the situation was obviously going to go from "really bad" to "worse"

 

The question is will you do anything before it becomes "worser" ?

The critical thing with landfills is conpaction.  All the disposal sites I've seen in Thailand have no plan to maximise the compaction ratio and yet air space in a disposal site is the most valuable asset.

Check the Samui government officials' family bank accounts and the answer is there!

I don't think it's a "disposal" site - more of a "collection" site!

I can see no way this could mess up, Hmm shipping large amounts of trash across the beautiful waters around the island. Just ship the trash out of sight instead of fixing the problem for the future. I would love to show the mayor and the Junta how we can turn the trash into clean energy without burning it and improve the economy at the same time. I am willing to invest $200 Million US in Koh Samui and its people.

The garbage problem in Koh Samui is directly related to the breakdown of the incinerator in 2012.

 

What exactly happened to the money for the incinerator for the last several years? This cries out for investigation.

 

There has been much discussion recently in Thailand over the issue of "criminal negligence" (which I dislike), If ever there was a legitimate case to be made for criminal negligence, it is here in Samui.

 

It is WAAAAYYYYY past time that this problem gets fixed.

Under-sight and lack of respect for beauty. or perhaps their I don't care, I'm rich? What a shame! Yuck!  But his is almost all of Thailand at Present. Kill the street food vendors, but crap on the beauty outside = OK for now.

 

Would not Bangkok airways and Thai airways play a role in the destruction of this prior wonderland gone to literal waste? It is criminal to say the least. I was there almost 25 yrs ago and it was a WOW WOW!. Now you could only pay me to go there. No dime of mine is going to be spent on that Island of crap. Or most of them now.

In the modern/western world the garbage is no longer a problem, it's a resource and recyclable to 95%. 

But who am I to tell Thai people about this;)
