Gov. Senee Jittakasem organized the June 14 World Environment Day event to remove garbage from the Tapong District beachfront. Much of that garbage, he said, flows down from Bangkok and other areas, wrecking Rayong’s public image and hurting the local beachfront-restaurant business.
The governor also called on citizens to report illegal dumping.
