PHUKET: Some 30 volunteers organised by the Cherng Talay Tambon Administration Organisation (OrBorTor) set out this morning (May 28) and cleared a mass of trash and marine debris strewn along Surin Beach.

Teams of volunteers set out at 8.30am to clear the 800-metre beach, Cherng Talay OrBorTor Chief MaAnn Samran explained.

In just three hours the teams had filled some 30 large rubbish bags with the trash, he added.

“While the volunteers were clearing the beach, we strong maintained that they kept a good social distance from each other, that they all wore face masks and tried to maintain the health regulations set out by the Ministry of Public Health [to help prevent the spread of COVID-19],” he said

“Now Surin Beach is clean,” said Mr MaAnn, but noted that more seaborne trash and marine debris was expected to be pushed ashore by wind and waves during the annual southwest monsoon.

“Every year during the rainy season, there is always a lot of debris and rubbish, such as pieces of wood, plastic bottles and other things, that is washed ashore by the waves,” he said.

Despite the mass cleanup held this morning, Mr MaAnn issued a reminder that all beaches remain closed by provincial order.

“The beach is still closed and people are still not allowed to visit there. If you find that the beach is dirty again, please inform the Cherng Talay OrBorTor,” Mr MaAnn said.

Was there the other day, and saw that the bull dozers were busy shaving off the land behind the beach road, likely another budget burning project of Mr. Samran being conduucted while locals cannot see what is happening and can't protest. I'd guess Mr. Samran has let vendors know that they will be able to return to their illegal businesses soon, even though there will be few people around.

Very irresponsible behaviour. We all know that setting foot on a beach automatically increases the risk of Covid 19 being transmitted.

Funny mr MaAnn: quote' beach still closed, people not allowed there. If you find the beach is dirty, please inform OrBorTor' unquote.  A contradictory mouth full. hahaha.  Mr MaAnn is specialised in using volunteers for what be his job, and I am sure he has the budgets for it. Where all that money goes?  Undergo OrBorTor's  bookkeeping checks by 'Bangkok'?
