PHUKET: Chalong Municipal workers moved and cleared mounds of garbage piling up on along Chalong Pier today (Oct 15) after Phuket Governor Phakaphong Tavipatana gave a clear order for the trash to be removed from the busy tourism facility immediately.

 

Chalong Pier is a major departure point for thousands of tourists boarding day-trips to nearby islands each day.

 

Although located within the Chalong Municipality area, Chalong Pier is operated by the Phuket Provincial Administration Organisation (PPAO or OrBorJor), which collects fees from all operators using the pier for garbage collection and maintenance.

Since the setup was changed and the marine department has been made directly responsible for trash collection it has improved a lot there. All trash is now put in the bins and it is collected daily. However a collection reservoir underneath the two big bins would be appreciated, quite often there are fluids leaking out onto the pier where people walk to and from the boats.

But collection has to be done at least on a daily basis, and with a long weekend like we just had without collection it will pile up.

Ah, so that's the main function of a governor then - glorified rubbish removal coordinator.

Good point, what should happen is the governor step in because the work is not being done then publicly shame the office which is errant.

Amazing Thailand! 

 

It takes the provincial governor to get garbage removed. Worthless idiots in public service abound.
