Three months after neighbors reported illegal garbage dumping on Sukhumvit Soi 12, Pattaya City Hall has done nothing to stop it, even as the trash piles up.

Residents reported in November that people had begun dumping refuse on open land on Soi Susankhao and demanded it be cleaned up and the land fenced off. Neither has happened.

Instead, the garbage has piled up to the point where it is now overflowing on to the public road and its strong odors are affecting the health of nearby children and senior citizens.

Resident Sirinan Noomak, 59, said the area used to be pleasant and tidy. People could come out and walk around and enjoy the scenery.

However, that has changed after careless people started dumping rubbish overnight and now they have to wake up to unpleasant smells.

The contaminated air is heavily affecting the health of the children, the ill and the elderly residents.

The rubbish concerned was a mixture of waste and scrap, with lots of rotten raw materials, food and more.
