Pattaya approved 95 million baht to tow away Koh Larn’s trash

image.png

PATTAYA:--The Pattaya City Council has approved spending 95 million baht for new barges to bring Koh Larn’s garbage surplus to a mainland landfill.

 

The city has requested the budget from the central government and still needs to meet to discuss specifics of the vessels to be purchased and the process behind eliminating the resort island’s 50,000-ton backlog.

 

Towing the rubbish to the mainland was one of five options being considered by the city to solve Koh Larn’s trash crisis, along with burying and burning the garbage, composting it or using it as fuel for a new waste-to-energy incinerator.

 

Currently 12 rai of land near Samae Beach is overflowing and causing a problem for both the environment and tourism. Residents said they want the trash removed and not burned or buried on the island due to the environmental impacts.

 

Officials said they plan to have the relocated garbage sorted for plastic and metal scrap that can be recycled.

So the solution to this issue is to transport the trash to the mainland, and then bury it in landfill.

 

OK ! dont pollute the Golden Goose that the officials think in Koh Larn, just pollute some area inland instead.

 

Pollution is pollution, it matters not where the crime takes place.

 

And with China now refusing to take a large amount of Plastic waste, does anybody really believe that there will be an effective recycling program for all this accumulated trash ? Certainly not me

They need a proper incinerator on site or transfer the wast to sealed containers for shipping...

 

I am assuming that it will be done the Thai way, using a grab bucket to load a lorry that will take it to a pier where another grab bucket will transfer what has not been blown or fallen from the lorry to a barge.

Then the barge will transfer what did not fall into sea at the pier to a pier somewhere near Pattaya where it will be off loaded using another grab bucket transfer the barges loads to awaiting lorries.

Be lucky if 50% of the wast gets to it's intended destination with a lot of it ending up in the sea.

So now no one wants the garbage from Pattaya anymore which they ship out. Now the garbage from Koh Larn has to come to Pattaya. I see there is a big garbage problem. Money to be made by someone in the government.

Hahaha one of my last comment on the other koh larn thread was surely they could add another barge to take up the shortfall of 10 tonnes per day.

 

I think the junta have spies here.

 

Great news though and for the newbies they have been shipping trash to the mainland for decades already but the damned tourists keep multiplying!

I can't find the news topic, but I'm sure our resident archivist can, about the Thai invention that could make fuel from plastic bags.

 

If they can make it from bags they sure an from plastic bottles as well.

Yes and pay dozens and dozens of workers instead some efficient mass moving operation with D8s or D9s, efficient loading onto the barges at the dock or pier, etc.

There are plenty of "garbage/salvage" folks roaming (with canine helpers) our wonderful city daily who could do the job far cheaper than 95 mill figure quoted I,m sure....:thumbsup:
