Hundreds of local residents are expected to take part in the major “Big Cleaning Week” scheduled to start on Monday and continue throughout the first week of May. Conducted under the slogan “Keep Phuket Clean by Our Hands and Hearts”, the campaign will be officially launched at 8am, May 1.

The island-wide campaign will start at Saphan Hin public park which has been chosen as the first place to tidy up. From there cleaning teams will move to other designated areas step by step cleaning roads, street markets, canals, etc.

According to Phuket Provincial Administration Organization (OrBorJor), every district will take part in the campaign. Phuket's main highway Thepkrasattri Rd and areas adjacent to the entrance to Phuket International Airport are also included in the big clean up plan.

The Chalong Pier area is a mess.
Why Chalong Harbor Master not steps into this? Is he blind?
And if he feels that rubbish/dirt/oil spill is to 'low' to concern about as a harbor master ( thai face), why then he not contact/order other government officials to handle this?

Fact is: The Chalong Harbor area is filthy.
Just as a citizen only that should be the concern of a Chalong harbor master.
Not yet talking about his official duties.

Chalong Harbor area needs a more active environmental conscious harbor master.
A Chalong harbor master with less heavy eye lids.

And a dustbin near the ramp at Chalong where the wooden hut and Thai security guys stay as they seen to think the beach is their dustbin! Walked down there the other day, piles of cans and plastic drink containers just strewn next to their hut!!

Completely useless effort and Thai-thypically,[sic] just for show without changing the mindset it's OK to throw garbage where it lands.

Fantastic, Where the Phuket government officials fail, us , the volunteers jump in!
Who in Phuket Government actually are paid and responsible for a clean Phuket?
Earning a salary, benefits and later a pension for that?
And just not doing the job as this volunteer clean up need proves.

A fantastic initiative, i hope this spreads through all areas as suggested and becomes common practice for all residents, Thai and foreigners alike.
