All provinces to go ahead with Garbage-Free Thailand campaign

The Ministry of Interior (MOI) has instructed all provincial authorities to go ahead with a Garbage-Free Thailand campaign. 

The Ministry of Interior’s Permanent-Secretary Grisada Boonrach said all provinces had been informed by the Department of Local Administration to carry out the waste management campaign in bid to reduce the total quantity of garbage by five percent in a year.

He said the MOI had established a command center for Garbage-Free Thailand. It will evaluate the outcomes of the campaign and reported to the cabinet on monthly basis.

The one-year campaign calls for the promotion of waste management knowledge among local people using the Reduce, Reuse, Recycle principles, the encouragement for government offices, schools, offices, and religious places to conduct garbage sorting, the promotion of garbage sorting and waste management at markets, and the promotion of communities which excellent result as models for other communities.

A contest will be held to award clean villages and communities by three villages per district and three clean districts per one province, according to the criteria drafted by the MOI. The regional contest will be held in June-July, while a national contest will be held in August-September 2017.
