Nongprue Sub-district workers hit Chaiyapornvitee Road to remove garbage and large pieces of rubbish while educating residents on ways to keep their neighborhood clean.
Deputy Mayor Teerawit Thongnok led health department staffers and community committee members to the busy street Nov. 5. The clean up is part of a four-phase program to beautify the sub-district.
Nongprue Sub-district workers remove garbage and large pieces of rubbish from Chaiyapornvitee Road.
The project focuses on adjusting the behavior of residents regarding waste disposal, keeping roads clean and yards tidy, reducing the amount of unrecycled garbage, and periodic cleanups.
In addition to normal litter and trash, workers also hauled away furniture and large, damaged household items dumped on the roadside following flooding from September’s tropical depression.
Nongprue officials told residents they cannot just throw out items they don’t want but need to haul it away to a proper dump site.
