About 100 Pattaya workers collected more than 20 tons of garbage and natural debris after a Sept. 14 storm.

Environment Department staffers spread out along the entirety of Pattaya Beach Sept. 15, using machinery and hand tools to collect the rubbish that both washed ashore and down from higher elevations, along with weeds, wood and hyacinth flushed to the sea from drainage canals.

Head cleaner Sanya Tubtimsir said the crews worked as quickly as possible to preserve the image of the beach for tourists.

With Typhoon Mungkhut expected to move inland from China and Vietnam by Thursday, more rain was expected in Pattaya.
