PATTAYA:--Despite years of effort, the city has been unable to make a dent in the wave of illegal dumping of garbage, large items and construction waste on roadsides, public land and private lots.Pattaya has removed all restrictions on what can be disposed of in city trash cans in an attempt to end the plague of illegal dumping.

 

Despite years of effort, the city has been unable to make a dent in the wave of illegal dumping of garbage, large items and construction waste on roadsides, public land and private lots.

 

So in last-ditch effort, Deputy Mayor Manote Nongyai announced that old furniture, tree branches, rubble and construction debris can now be disposed of in individual and public garbage cans that will be collected on a regular schedule.

Oh. I don't live in Pattaya, but our dustbin men/garbage collectors have been taking our dead palm tree branches away for years.

Right! That´s the way to go. Now nothing is going to be possible to recycle.

I bet the contractor who recently was awarded the contract after a long trial feels shafted with this decision.😟

Good point, heaving up bins full of broken rubble and concrete was not in the original bid!

Good ! Now maybe, just Maybe this will reduce the dumping in my Corner of the Woods.

But I seriously doubt it.

Even the rats must be thinking this is a mess in our world class paradise 🤔

Yeah, but they're the ones making the new rules, aren't they? 🙄

That's actually quite an enlightened policy - back in the UK most councils have started charging for bulk waste pickups or even to use the council dump. Flytipping has increased dramatically as a result and then they just have to divert resources to sort that out. Apparently under a previous management at our condo they hadn't paid the city garbage bill for over 2 years but they still continued to take it away. There's a lot to criticise Pattaya Council for but from where I'm viewing it they seem to have got this right.

He'll probably refuse the contract without more cash, that'll take 6 months of arguing during which time nothing will be collected at all. TIT

I agree with the above poster, enlightened. He's right about the UK. Instances of flytipping have increased dramatically since the changes he mentions.
