Alarm as Toxic Chemical Waste is Dumped in Bang Lamung

Recommended Posts

I think they should check the drum numbers against the company numbers in Rayong that makes the chemical.

But I forgot its Thailand ?????

Interesting twenty four post and few of them clicking the Like this button what happen to all these farang on this forum

The 3-monkeys on Post 25 says it perfectly well but the fourth monkey is missing the one with its hands holding its crotch.

Anyhow this is not a Thailand ONLY problem the west is riddled with similar problems. For a starter Michigan water supply poisoned comes to mind and now they're are in the process of discovering a slew of other cities in Exceptionalistan.  It all fits in with  fascist capitalist Planet Earth overpopulation reduction.

I will give the like to you because you have exposed similar problems in the world and the disaster in Michigan is just the tip of the iceberg of the same problem throughout the whole country and the world. We have been taking Mother Earth for granted to long and used her as a waste receptacle and she has had enough of our nonsense.

I appreciate that flytipping is a worldwide problem, when I lived in the UK I drove to work through lovely countryside and actually passed the local recycling plant, you could guarantee that either on may way to work or going home I would see bags of household or builders waste on the side of the road, within minutes of the recycling plant.

 

Same here in Thailand, we went out yesterday and took a shortcut through the back roads to avoid some roadworks, what did we see ? literally tons of rubbish just thrown onto the side of the road, and again we were within minutes of the local landfill site.

 

Why do people want to deface their beautiful country in such a way is beyond me. :(

I don't read anything about removing these drums yet, or if they are going to place them on plastic to stop leaching into the ground.  I suppose they want to find out who is going to cover the cost first !

Yes shocking,  aren't we the lucky one's though that they would never dream of doing such a thing in the West?

Nice try but its not the dumping, because there are irresponsible scumbags everywhere who do that

Its the action taken by the relevant authorities after the event that counts

This of course involves a bit more than just looking the other way while inserting one / two fingers up their anus

Years ago you could give the "dustman"  just about anything and they would gladly take it  if not the
"rag and bone man" would...now you're lucky if he council will provide a yearly skip to throw your waste away

but not TV/computer screens,  fridges, batteries,tyres,oil,lpg canisters and a ever growing list

so you try and take that stuff to the council approved tip...they wont let you in in a van and as a resident you can only bring 2 car loads per month...ohh and they wont except TV/computer screens,  fridges, batteries,tyres,oil,lpg canisters !!!

 

If they want to stop people dumping why do they make it so difficult to dispose of waste properly ?

 

As for Thailand /Pattaya  a lot of stuff is  unofficially recycled  collected by the "garbage pickers"  and sold to various  middlemen recyclers around the area...

I asked before and don't think anyone  did answer   where is the official waste disposal/ rubbish dump for the Pattaya area ?   google map would be lovely thanks.

Google The Birdcage, if you keep the Birdcage on your right the landfill is on the left hand side, maybe 300 meters or so.

There may have been a hint of self-deprecating sarcasm in what they said.  Sarcasm seems to fly over the heads of many TV posters who take everything in print literally.

A very subtle hint I would suggest

I like to answer your posts on occasion only because they do amuse me although I do realize I should ignore them

"dumped near a water source in Tamon Ban Pong, Banglamung."

Curious to know how this water source is used.

Is it pumped and/or trucked into Pattaya for consumption?

Is it used by local companies to make bottled water?

If it is hazardous isn't more information warranted?

Should be easy to find where the drums came from,  i.e. imported drums usually have markings on showing origin.  Then check at customs to find out which company imported them.  I guess that will be a wholesaler.  Then check which factories bought large quantities of the chemical.  Check the companies' (probably several) disposal records.  Worldwide in such matters  it's the company paid to dispose of the wastes that's "taken a short- cut" and simply dumped the waste after charging the producer for proper treatment and disposal.  Not difficult to investigate if the right people are used and the authorities have the determination to solve this "environmental crime". ?

(I guess) Here just like in the west they use legit companies that take care of chemical waste. These companies are almost always related to criminal organizations, and change name often. so the company that hand's over there chemical waist to those companies always washes it's hands in innocence !!!!

In the EU you are supposed to give all those hazardous things to the retailer where you bought the replacement, the only issue should be if you did not buy a new one.

well google map doesn't seem to have the birdcage  I'm assuming you mean the birdcage on Soi Khoa talo  and not the gay bar in South Pattaya.. the nearest bar marked on google would seem to  be Full moon bar  dont see anything like a dump site on the satellite view.

"A crack team of Pattaya One scientists, co-ordinating with US researchers at Google, can confirm." - so they googled it.

 

 

Yeah..  had to laugh at that. 

 

I would like to see their credentials 555...  probably more in line with crack than science.

There seems to be labels on the drums there will be serial no's and batch no's go to the company who sold the product and trace what company bought them and fine them a good few millions. More than likely some ass wipe was given the job of disposing of these drums and dumped there. Hope they find the culprits
