City workers cleaned out an illegal dumpsite that had appeared in central Pattaya.

Sanitation officer Thapida Suikamhai led the crew that fanned out on Soi Arunothai near Niran Condo May 4. They were joined by Chumsai Community President and local volunteers.

City workers used heavy equipment and garbage trucks to remove the waste while joining volunteers in tidying up the landscape. City workers also cut back shrubs and trees where people had been dumping trash illegally.

Pattaya urged neighbors to keep an eye out for illicit dumpers and immediately call police if they see anyone disposing of waste there. Wrongdoers will face a maximum fine according to the law.
