Thirty-four local administrative organisations have agreed to the Nakhon Ratchasima Municipality Council’s proposal to hike the fee for garbage disposal from Bt300 per tonne to be Bt400 per tonne.

The council meeting on Friday was told that all local administrative organisations in Muang district, as well as some from Chokchai, Chalerm Phrakiat and Non Sung districts, sent a total of 420 tonnes of garbage daily basis to the 3rd Garbage Disposal Centre. As the facility’s capacity of disposing garbage was only 230 tonnes, it led to the 440,000 tonnes of cumulative garbage, sending a foul smell to disturb nearby communities, said Mayor Surawuth Cherdchai.

Having implemented various other measures to reduce garbage, such as a campaign to separate trash before disposal, or even temporarily suspending the centre from being allowed to accept garbage, the municipality which runs this facility asked for help from the Second Army Region, he said.

The Second Army Region thus allowed the municipality to use its 50-rai (8 hectares) plot of land as a temporary garbage-burial site and its 153-rai plot to build a Bt2 billion garbage-fuelled power plant as a public-private joint project with a 20-year concession period, he said.

The council meeting was told that it was necessary that the garbage disposal fee be hiked to Bt400 per tonne and would move up in parallel with the inflation rate to help cover garbage management expenses and fund the planned garbage-fuelled power plant. The council attendees then voted to approve the fee hike.
