Rubbish Donation in Rawai

Feb 3rd, 2010, Orapin Wongchumpit, the Director – General of the Department of Environmental Quality Promotion, presided over the “Recyclable Rubbish Donation” at Nong Harn Lake near Nai Harn Beach, Rawai.

The event was arranged under the cooperation between local administrative organization plus government and private network in order to enhance the standard of rubbish management in the Rawai since the economic development and community expand because the amount of rubbish seems to be much more everyday. The total amount of rubbish in Rawai municipality area is 20 tons per days.

This donation project will surely help to reduce the trash amount in Rawai; it’s also helps the residences, restaurant, hotel or any businesses in the area reduce their expense managing the rubbish from their homes and offices.

    item–1 Phuket's less plastic bags campaign is to kick off on Valentine’s Day.

    item-2- Rawai Municipality is campaigning for waste separation from households.
    The campaign was put into action when Director–General for Environmental Quality Promotion Department Mrs. Orapin Wongchumpis presided over the campaign by getting used material donations. People bring recycled material such as glass bottles to donate or contribute to the Rawai Municipality’s Environment Fund. The Rawai Mayor Arun Soros admits that his area faces large increases in waste amounts due to tourism growth. His office is therefore urging residents and tourists to separate waste from their premises. They include paper, plastic bottles, & glass bottles to send for recycling procedures. On the first day, the organizer received 6.5 tons of recyclable waste which was worth 21,700 baht in cash. [youtube bPMKRj24X7A
