ขยะกว่า 400 ตันต่อวัน กระทบท่องเที่ยวพัทยา
More than 400 tons of rubbish per day: that is a major problem affecting tourism in Pattaya, Chonburi. Pattaya city administrators spend more than 92 million baht to hire private companies to help collecting the garbage for 5 months.
Every rainy season have often floods situations in Pattaya. One reason may be because of the problem of garbage clogs in the sewage and drains. Just like in the sea, both North and Central Pattaya beach where often found floating rubbish. The impact on tourism is negative.
The garbage pit on Soi Sukhumvit 3 Pattaya is used as a pre-loading facility to be then disposed of by landfill. At the Rayong Provincial Administration Organization Today, the staff has to work hard because there are more than 400 tons of waste. Both garbage trucks from Pattaya and private employers that were hired to collect with 50 trucks are dumping here. But that does not mean there is no residue in the area.
Over the past five years, the waste in Pattaya has more than doubled from 200 tons per day as the number of tourists grown. Each year, there are more than 8,000,000 Thai and foreigners visiting the city. Of these numbers, not more than 500,000 are employed. As a result, the amount of household waste and businesses is increasing. And the waste management of Pattaya has to face the problem because the waste pits are not big enough to handle this amount of trash!
Pattaya has approved a waste budget of 92 million baht, hired a private company to help to collect the waste in the area for 5 months, and is in the process of preparing a new long-term waste collection plan. The auction will be open to resume work after the contract ends.
This April. Pattaya City is sure to make the system more efficient.
