Trash burner ?


Recommended Posts

Our village do not collect trash, so I need to build an trash burner. Anyone have pics or ideas? 

 

I know tabu, but thats how it is here. Everyone burn their trash, or they dump it somewhere else around their neighbourhood. I just do not want to put fire to the national park or the fields around me, even the locals fine manage that on their own.

Time to move into civilization and stop playing "me Tarzan you Jane"...we have trash pickup in the civilized world...and running water too

95 percent of household  rubbish can be recycled . Plastic bags and  plastic wrappings is all you should be left with . That can be stored in bags until you can dispose of it without burning .  G

Then, I can tell you one thing, or first ask you, what do you think thos you pay to take away your garbage do to it? Anyone know where their garbage goes after it is taken away from you by the village

Better move back home then? 

 

What do you think they do to all the garbage? Landfillings? Or burn it?

Landfills are a problem...but currently Thailand and SE Asia have a serious air quality issue...if you and your cohorts continue to burn....the air will be like Delhi , India...where you can't see a meter in front of your face on bad days.

Sorry, but burning trash is a horrible idea.  It just makes our air worse. 

 

There are alternatives.  They cost more and take more time, but in the end, they are much better for our plant and those of us who live here.

 

Don't contribute to our air quality problem.

And as said we try to minimize our footprint, planted over 200 trees, and trust I do not like it as well, and I understand your concerns, but,,,,,,,,,,, just give me a break and open your eyes, 

It's taken to a landfill.  I've been there.  Several are here around Pattaya.  A bit one near the Sports Stadium.  They for sure don't burn it.  Guaranteed.

 

I've got a friend who lives on the 20th floor.  From his balcony, we can see many fires burning across the area.  And the air quality is 100% impacted.  You can see the smoke lay low across the area, infecting all of us.

 

Don't do it!  Plus, it's illegal.  Look it up.  Someone could turn you in and make money off it.

Why not dump at night?!  CIP At the start of my condo drive, kinda brushy. People pull off the main road and dump. It is not condo land, over 150 meters away from buildings so no one sees & management does nothing.

Popular, cost effective, a long term 'composting' solution, more importantly no burning so no air pollution. You too, can be an environmentalist. :thumbsup:

You should turn these people in.  Seriously.

Yep, and the landfills infest the groundwater. Just passed one landfill on Koh Larn, and the slope canyon ending down to one of the nicest beaches they have. Very long term well thought out. 

 

The idea of having a proper burner, you manage to burn it propely with high enough heat, and then minimize the impact, but it is a far shot when you do not live in the country side, and see for your self. We are surrounded of rice fields, and guess what? They burn everything they can burn, but as said minimizing our foot print as much we can. And we do not have anything elses to do. It is considering evil against evil. 

Agreed!  No easy answers, but burning is illegal.  Though many still do it.  A few try near us, we just call the police and they show up and it's put out.  Luckily, a few have never tried again.

 

Pattaya does have an incinerator. Which burns more efficiently than open fires.  But, it's only working at 50% of capacity.  And yes, the trash is piling up.

 

I hear what you are saying, but it's illegal.  In the end, we're doing a terrible job here of managing trash and the environment.  Terrible.
