PHUKET:-- Disaster officials responding to an illegal trash site on fire north of Phuket Town earlier today (Aug 11) have voiced their concerns about trash being illegally dumped across the island.

 

Fire teams were called to the site, on Soi Rungrawee just north of Wat Kosit Wihan on Thepkrasattri Rd (see map below), at about 1:50pm.

 

Firefighters were concerned that the fire could spread out of control, said Watthana Patangtaro, an officer at the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation office at Phuket City Municipality (DDPM-Phuket City).

Always concerned after the event... never concerned before !

This standard practise where I live. No bin collections here. Just plastic (bottles mostly) and glass (also bottles)removed. Everything else has to be burned, including plastic packaging, garden detritus, old shoes, kitchen waste, after the dogs and chickens have had a go at it. Rubble, just dumped on the side of the road...
