Less trash during Songkran festival this year




Bangkok generated 10 percent less garbage during the April 13-15 Songkran festival averaging 8,000 tonnes a day instead of 10,000 tonnes partly because of increased public awareness with environment problem, said City Clerk Pattharut Tattranont on Monday.


On Khao Sarn road, a popular destination for Songkran revellers of both Thais and foreign tourists, he said that only 34 tonnes of garbage were collected during April 13-15 compared to 73.5 tonnes during the same period last year with most of the trash being drinking water bottles, water bowls and plastic cans.


On Silom road, another favourite spot for Songkran revelers, only 33.13 tonnes of garbage were generated compared to 73.19 tonnes during the same period last year.
