Nine illegal trash trucks caught using City Hall’s incinerator

Bangkok governor Aswin Kwanmuang led city officials and police to prevent nine garbage trucks from Samut Sakhon province illegally dumping trash at the Nong Khaem incinerator on Thursday.

 

The governor said that city officials had been quietly keeping a close watch on the activities of the trucks at the garbage disposal facility for about a week before the raid yesterday.

 

He said that the City’s auditors had become suspicious of an unusual increase in the costs of trash disposal amounting to about 100,000 baht a day at the incinerator, which normally burns about 3,500 tonnes of garbage daily.

Doesn’t every province have a state of the art and properly regulated landfill?

 

what’s the fuss about?

You just have to cycle along the ditches of all the main and secondary roads of Thailand to see it:
Thailand is an open-air bin

Which they certainly do in many provinces;
in any case what is done at Sawang Daen Din ( Sakon Nakhon province ) because the two incinerators have been down for many years

Dump it there, but pay for it above board.

There are trucks everywhere everyday dumping all over the provinces and don’t care who’s property it is. 

 

We we have a large building near our home that someone has realised it’s empty and now trucks are coming in at night. Got my worker to chain the main door to stop them.

     If Thailand is to incinerate its rubbish, should they have proper industrial incinerator sites, and not submarines.

     If they did use their subs, they could dispose of it out of the torpedo tubes, then blame someone else for the sea pollution, Thai logic ????

If ! As in any civilized Country, there were adequate provisions made for the collection and safe disposal of all the trash ( not just in Bangkok, but Nation Wide ) there would be no issues.

Also the regulation and Policing of the Secondary recycle Industry would benefit Society greatly

A good friend of mine has a Primary Recycle Business, and pays 50K + Per Annum in Tax to the Government, yet 100 Meters down the road from his business is a Secondary recycle Business in a tin sheet yard that pays nothing, and they are continually polluting the area with waste and fires.

Shouldn't the incinerators be generating electricity and then paying people to bring cheap fuel (i.e. waste/trash/garbage/rubbish)? They should be profit centres, not cost centres.

The Bangkok Post version added this nice little detail not given in the ThaiPBS report:

 

The illegal dumping has been going on for five years and had cost the city about 40 million baht a year.

 

Well, it ONLY took the BMA FIVE YEARS to figure out they had been paying the costs of disposing of a different province's garbage!!!

What a clown! All over Thailand, and I mean ALL OVER THAILAND, it is more than evident, that garbage is disposed wherever nobody is watching. 

Illegal use of incinerators, paid for by taxpayers? What nonsense. If this is not permitted, the dump trucks will decorate the surroundings of the incinerator location with the content of their lorries.
