Recently the Koh Samui City department stated that it has no available budget to take care of the two hundred thousand tons of trash on Koh Samui that has affected both tourism on the island and has become a public health issue.

samui rubbish 4In a recent TV interview the mayor of Koh Samui City, Mr.Ramnet Jaikwang said that the city municipality budget could only cover taking care of trash on a daily basis, with nothing in reserve to deal with the two hundred thousand tons of banked up trash left on Koh Samui. However, the mayor now requested the national government to allow a supplementary budget to fix the problem for the people of Koh Samui. Meanwhile, the city municipality will take care of health implications of residents in the garbage dump area in the south of the island close to the provincial prison.

In April, Surat Thani Governor Mr.Chatpong Chatraphuti, along with the government sectors went to inspect the area after Gen. Prayuth Chan-ocha commanded the governor to take care of the problem.
