    Koh Tao Another Smelly Koh Samui And It's Not Smelly Socks.

    Koh Tao garbage problem – could this be the new Samui


    As if the garbage problem in Koh Samui was not enough it seems now that neighbouring Koh Tao is suffering similar problems after the island’s incinerator broke down three weeks ago. Since then it has been reported that tourists are leaving the island in their droves, unable to tolerate the putrid stench.

    garbage koh TaoKoh Tao produces between 30 and 40 tons of rubbish a day. As the rains fall on the island the accumulated filth is washing down onto the streets filling the air with the smell of rotting garbage.
    Koh Tao Municipality Chief Administrative Officer revealed on Friday that the contract between the municipality and Success Environment Management Co Ltd (SEM), the operators of the incinerator, ended on August 15. Due to the contractors not fulfilling their contractual obligations the contract has not been renewed. It is believed that plans for a solution are in hand at a cost of six million baht. However Mr Yee, a Myanmar national employed by SEM said the company employed to deal with the trash had not been paid, neither had the workers he said.
    The ever increasing pile of rubbish is having a disastrous impact on local business, people are getting itchy rashes are worried about catching diseases and it has had a noticeable impact on tourism.

    The incinerator in Koh Samui has now been out of action for approximately 9 years, the pile of rubbish is now estimated to be over 300,000 tons and shows now sign of being dealt with despite heavy army presence on the island.

    The place should've been quarantined long ago.

    As a metaphor for Thailand the island is perhaps unsurpassed. The stench of rotting filth is of course the fragrance of rank hypocrisy and utter corruption permeated by an odour concocted from greed mixed with the lingering smell of slothful incompetence.

    It is unmistakable and particularly Asian.

    Nothing to do with a numerous population.
    Except in this case?

    Yeah, in the twenty first century, on an island making a small fortune out of tourism, the people making that money cannot be considered responsible for dealing with garbage.

    Good. They shouldn't have been there in the first place. It's not polite to break a boycott, and if there isn't one, there should be.

    Garbage incinerator in London produces enough heat to generate electricity. Samui should look into that.

    The mafia scum running KT spent all their money on bribing bent judges and now can't afford to fix the incinerator.

    Number of fucks given = 0
