Small Thepprasit soi filled with garbage


A little unnamed soi situated between Thepprasit Sois 6 and 8 is apparently being ignored by the city’s sanitation department.

The Thepprasit Road neighborhood is now home to an 80-meter-long pile of garbage, construction materials and rocks. Some resident don’t seem too concerned, as they’ve now taken to using it as the local dump. But responsible neighbors want Pattaya’s sanitation department to do its job and clean up the mess.

Withoon Saetang, 53, said the problem has been going on for a long time and the people responsible for the area, rather than prohibiting the dumping, have actually been rummaging through the waste looking for recyclable items to resell.
