Executives from 50 administrative bodies in Nakhon Ratchasima province yesterday discussed how to dispose of 638,060 tonnes of accumulated garbage.
A report on "proper and practical methods" for disposal of the rubbish must be sent to the Office of Natural Resources and Environmental Policy and Planning by Thursday.

The Comptroller-General's Department has calculated that the province will need Bt216 million in the 2016 fiscal year to dispose of the accumulated trash. Ranongrak Suwanchawee, president of the Nakhon Ratchasima Provincial Administrative Organisation, said officials had agreed to transport and dispose of the garbage at a TPI Polene cement-manufacturing facility in Saraburi province.

This meant 29,000 trips to carry the trash in trucks plus the digging and levelling of a tip. So they estimated the province would need a budget of about Bt255.96 million - slightly more than the department calculated, she said.
