Laem Tukkae is home to one of the three main sea gypsy villages in Phuket, with the chao lay living along the beachfront on Koh Siray's southern peninsular

Leading the cleanup were Phuket Vice Governor Snith Sriwihok and Watcharin Thintalang, Director of the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR) office in Phuket.

Vice Governor Snith reminded the residents that Thailand is among the top 10 worst nations in the world for garbage in the sea.

“But beaches in Phuket must be kept clean,” he added.

Mr Watcharin noted, “The big problem is how can we manage all the garbage as part of everyday life.”

As an excercise to highlight how this could be accomplished, local residents were called on to separate the rubbish collected today to learn which refuse could be recycled, reused or disposed of appropriately.

“I want to advise people to dispose of rubbish properly in future. If we all throw all our rubbish in the water or by the side of the road, it will eventually accumulate,” V/Gov Sanit said.

“This will not only affect our environment but also our future, so please dispose of your rubbish in the correct manner,” he added.

me and a lot of farangs would really like to know what to do with all kind of old battery's. if i ask farangs the answer is, we collect them and store them since ever. some have like me bucket's full.   at Big C phuket they have a collecting point for discharged cell-ipones and chargers  O N L Y!!! I did ask a BigC manager years ago about a collecting box for old battery's. his answer, we will see in to it. years later, no box, they still see in to it. try'd to trow my bucket with battery's in to that box for discharged cellphone's at BigC but this box is full to the top since age's never got empty'd.  I dit ask a few Thai's how to get rid of old battery's, they all said refusebin. at least non of them told me to feed them to corralfish at PiPi
