East Pattaya public housing project drowning in trash

East Pattaya public housing project drowning in trash


PATTAYA:--An East Pattaya housing project is generating so much garbage, no matter where it’s put, it annoys people.


Boontem Yikeng, director of the Nernplabwan Government Housing Project in Nong Maikaen said Jan. 29 that he is now awaiting approval from the Chonburi Housing Department to construct a garbage-storage shed in front of the project by a pond.


The shed is necessary because no matter where trash bins have been placed, residents complain about the smell and flies, plus the bins overflow, giving the project a bad image.


At first, five bins were placed around the perimeter of the development. But lazy people continued to dump garbage behind the main administration building.


So all five bins were moved to behind the administration building. That solved the illegal dumping, but overpowered nearby homes with its smell.


Boontem said the problem has been going on for years and, barring an amazing turnaround in residents’ refusal to separate trash and recycle, will continue until a larger storage area farther from the apartments is approved.
