PATTAYA – July 24, 2012 [Pattaya Daily News]; Mr. Farook Wongborisut, the Member of Parliament of Muang Pattaya, revealed that in the last Pattaya council meeting he had proposed a resolution to consider increasing the garbage management budget in the Pattaya area from 10 million to 50 million THB.

More than 10 million tourists are visiting Pattaya annually, he said, and the trend clearly points toward continuing tourism growth. Efficiently managing garbage and waste for cleanliness is a critical factor in a world-renowned tourist resort like Pattaya, Mr. Farook said. If there is no plan to manage waste in the future, it may cause harmful impacts to the environment, as well as the economic and the well-being of the community.

Mr. Farook said the local government should be planning more systematically about future garbage management. He said the city should increase the number of officers in sanitation and garbage units. Training programs should also be set up to increase the quality of consistent work, as well as management techniques in using and maintaining equipment.

The Pattaya council members accepted the resolution and will meet further to consult and analyze information about Pattaya garbage management in greater detail. At a later date, council members will present options and discuss solutions.
