Facebook garbage activists insert selves into Koh Larn trash crisis

PATTAYA:--A group of Facebook garbage activists visited Koh Larn to see the island’s trash crisis, offering to see if they could help.

 

Administrators of the Rubbish Communication page, Supada Wongsim and Kitatipat Kuawijit, visited the dump at Khao Nom, Samae Beach Aug. 23. They said they were collecting data to analyze with the goal of helping reduce odor and discomfort for residents and tourists.

 

The visit followed a meeting between the group of housewives and Scandinavian expats and the Pattaya Business & Tourism Association three days earlier. There Supada and Kitatipat volunteered to have members spray the 50 tons of rotting garbage with effective microorganism spray to reduce the odor.

 

PBTA officials responded positively to the idea, but said another meeting was needed.

 

So the Facebook campaigners spent the day chatting with a local baht bus driver who told them that Koh Larn’s trash crisis has been going on for years, and Koh Larn Community Secretary Sorasak Thongbongpetch, who educated them on the initiatives taken by Pattaya City Hall to resolve the problem, including a contract now out for bids to remove the garbage backlog.

I hate to say this but...after living here for 15 years the unnamed “government officials” will contract some friend of a friend to load the tons of trash on barges and at night time, the barges will dump the old garbage into the sea.A few days later, it will wash ashore. This periodically happens now at sea.

Classic lesson on what "whitewash the problem" means.
