Nongprue Sub-district is making a push for recycling to reduce the Pattaya area’s garbage-disposal problems and beautify the community.

Deputy clerk Pramote Tabtim led a delegate of officials out to clean up and spread knowledge on waste management from Soi Pattanakarn 6 to Soi Khao Talo 24 and Soi Pattanakarn 5, March 5. Residents were asked to recycle most of their rubbish before throwing it away.

Their goal is to beautify the community, eliminate breeding and nesting sites for pests, raise awareness about waste disposal and help prevent outsiders from disposing rubbish in the area to reduce the amount of accumulated garbage in the community.

Pramote asked people to cooperate by cleaning and discarding rubbish properly to achieve the sub-district’s goal of a “Livable Nongprue”.

Furthermore, the municipality has instructed community committees to inform people about the Rubbish-Free Road program imposed on Marb Yai Lia, Chaiyapornwithee, Pornprapanimit, Khao Talo, Khao Noi, Tungklom, Tanman, and Nong Mai Kaen roads.

People living on these roads are prohibited from disposing garbage on public roads or lands and must put trash in rubbish bags, tightly tied, and pile them in front of their house from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m. They are also prohibited from putting rubbish bins in front of their houses.

The road program also seeks to beautify the area by banning trash disposal on property in view of the public, advertising signs on public land and prohibiting selling food on the side of the road.

Nongprue will collect trash every day from 3-7 a.m., but will not collect large items like old sofas, mattresses or furniture.
