Who needs garbage bins when you have the ground?


Not only was someone on Soi Kophai too lazy to put garbage in the provided bins, Pattaya trash collectors didn’t bother to pick it up.

A large number of smelly, leaking black plastic garbage bags sat next to half-full bins Sept. 24, making putrid puddles and irritating neighbors.

A local taxi driver said the problem is a chronic one, fueled by an influx of new residents. They toss garbage around with little care for who will pick it up, he said.
