KOH LARN:--Koh Larn’s trash problems are being handled with hopes that the island’s massive garbage backlog could be eliminated by 2020, Pattaya business leaders were told.

 

The Pattaya Business & Tourism Association moved its monthly meeting to Koh Larn on Aug. 17 to see for itself the extent of the resort island’s trash crisis and what is being done to resolve it. Island sanitation chief Itthiphol Nethiyakub Sing­kornkaew glossed over the severity of the problem, telling members not to worry, it’s all being handled.

 

Itthiphol acknowledged Koh Larn has been overrun with both garbage and sewage-management problems, but claimed measures approved in recent months by the Pattaya City Council are inching toward enactment and will work to solve the problem.

 

Itthiphol said some projects are in the procurement phase while some are at the contract-signing point. In the case of hauling away Koh Larn’s garbage backlog, the terms and prices for a contractor have been set and are moving toward the bidding stage.

...at least we are well informed, what the priorities are.

Inching is evidently the operative word.

Classic , classic indifference .. Thailand needs to wake up to the damage that these images can inflict on their reputation as a world class holiday destination courtesy of sosh' media .. They got in a tizz earlier this week 'bout some dude putting up a clip featuring swimming pool petting .. The Koh Larn images I suggest would have a greater negative effect on the rep' ..

Another (unsolvable ) problem..there are as many dogs in that photo as there are people.

another thread today says its now illegal to dump them at temples.so I suppose the rubbish dump will see even more dogs.
