Nobody cares-they burn every single thing with no penalty at all-does the government really care about anything at all but money?

People start to care more and mote.

Thailand terribly needs nation-wide garbage collecting system, waste recycling/reusing in order to get rid of those practices.

B S, they burn everything it's a part of the culture. The burning of the fields for example will continue until the rainy season. The authorities will do absolutely nothing and the locals are either totally ignorant or afraid to complain.

I know what burning plastic smells like. If you have lived in Thailand, you probably know that as well.

I  hope they get more interaction from their Local Authority than I did.

Thai's don't want to pay for a collection service though. In my Moo ban we have roughly 200 homes. The Pu Yai finally was able to get a service up and running. Unfortunately only 40 homes signed up. Apparently the other 160 did not want to pay the 60 baht monthly fee!!! So, guess what those 160 are doing? Same as usual dump and burn!!!! 😏

In every civilized country the moo baan would forbid the burning and enforce it with high fines. After the people pay a 1,000 Baht fine and know the next one will come if they burn again, they will find out that 60 Baht per month is much cheaper. In civilized countries...

They care, but will real solutions be activated?  No proof of that, in fact, it’s getting worse

The problem is that ordinary Thai people have little idea how to make things happen - yes, use the media but you need NUMBERS  - not just 5 or 10 people, 500 or 1000. Then the local police & governor start to take notice.

 

Then you need PERSISTENCE so they start to actually DO something - like arrest fire burners and fine them with REAL money ...

 

Any trade unions in this benighted country? I've never heard of one ...

THERE are none as far as I know

Submarines rate higher than a garbage collection and disposal program.
