Pattaya sanitation workers know that heavy rainstorms will mean a busy day of work the next day, as was the case Sept. 29 when they again had to scoop up all the garbage left behind by another big flood.

Public Health workers from Pattaya City Hall collect rubbish along Pattaya Beach in the aftermath of a recent storm.

A massive amount of rubbish washed onto the beaches following the big storm that left many streets under nearly a meter of water.

A crew of 10 hit Pattaya Beach early, collecting leaves, plastic bags, wood and even dead animals carried there by the runoff.

It was a scene sure to be repeated often until the end of the month when rainy season subsides.
