'Over 600 hotels, bungalows' cause a stink in Khao Kho National Park

More than 600 hotels have dumped garbage from New Year celebrations in many areas of Khao Kho National Park, said the Anti-Global Warming Association president, adding that the association will soon lodge a complaint against illegal establishments.

 

Activist and president Srisuwan Janya said the association is investigating and recording hotels without a licence under the Hotel Act 2004 in the protected area of Khao Kho National Park.

 

The more than 600 hotels have carried out the garbage dumping without any storage or disposal measures in accordance with sanitary landfill methods, Srisuwan said.

 

This also shows local government organisations have neglected their duties. And to top it all, there has been “smuggling” of garbage, leading to dust spreading widely, the president said.

 

The main reason for this is probably due to a large number of illegal hotels, resorts and bungalows without adequate control and management measures, Srisuwan added. The garbage came from tourists who flocked to the park and reserved forest areas, until the amount of rubbish exceeded the capacity of these areas to support it.

 

The association will lodge a complaint against all illegal facilities with the chiefs of the Royal Forest Department and the National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation Department next week, Srisuwan added.

Many years ago in Samui I made the proposal to charge hotels / resorts a waste tax according to the number of rooms they have, which have not lynched me, it was a stroke of luck, but as you can see, those who earn a lot with tourism, they are also the biggest environmental criminals!

a proper disposal center

 

Yes....here is the problem. Not enough ( if any ) of these that cater for the public. Just big tips that the rubbish collecters use. So unorganized that the public can't use them. 

Who can you blame other than successive governments who talk but do nothing. Really disgraceful and getting worse.
