At 9am on Wed nesday (Jan 10) in Cherng Talay, Governor Norraphat Plodthong along with Thalang District Chief Kongtho-adul Chutong and Chief of the Cherng Talay Tambon Administration Organisation (OrBorTor) MaAnn Samran led a clean-up at Surin, Bang Tao and Layan Beaches.

At the same time, various Keep Phuket Clean by our Hands and Hearts projects were held in different areas around Phuket including Chalong and Patong.

Gov Norraphat said, “Phuket’s income comes from tourism. Phuket is one of the top ten cities in the world that tourists want to visit. This is what we are proud of, but we have to manage tourism with natural resources conservation, and I want people to pay attention to conserving our island. Phuket island will be cleaner by sight in 2018.

“We have ordered government offices and the private sector to hold cleaning activities at least twice a month. Cherng Talay OrBorTor has continued pushed forward with rubbish management, and I would like to thank them for for all their cooperation in reducing rubbish in the area,Gov Norraphat said.

“We request cooperation from hotels to separate rubbish especially wet rubbish such as food, fruit and vegetables. This kind rubbish is a source of germs. In addition, hazardous waste must also be separated,” Gov Norraphat noted.


Mr Kongtho-adul added, “To follow this campaign, we have to make sure that people are concerned with cleanliness. We have cooperated with more than 20 operators to solve the rubbish problem in our area.”

While in Chalong, Phuket Vice Governor Prakob Wongmaneerung along with Chalong Mayor Samran Jindaphol led a cleaning activity at Soi Anusorn. Joining them were other government officials and volunteers.

The expats are not polluting, They look around and are surprised that the thai local officials not provide sufficient amount of rubbish bins where it is very needed.
And when there are here or there a few rubbish bins, than they are always full.
No authority schedule to empty, and no officials to check on that.

When start thai OrBor Tor officials to handle trash properly?
Yes, we know such c...

Maybe the PN could inform all reader about upcoming events like this.Given the comments made on here about the polluted environment on Phuket,i am sure many of those expats would be glad to join such clean ups.Working hand in hand with the environment unaware locals will give them also a chance to teach them all they know about handling trash etc.The western superiority could be shown.
