The Problem: In Phuket, roughly 70% of rubbish arriving at the Waste Management Plant can be incinerated. The remaining 30% ends up in our landfills that are rapidly filling up every day!
Rubbish from landfills are contaminating our underground water supply and polluting the soil. Wind and rain carry plastics from landfills to waterways and back to the ocean.
If we want to keep our oceans clean and our marine creatures healthy, we need to ensure that only the non-recyclables end up in the incinerator and landfill. As for the non-recyclables we need to reduce our over-consumption so that everything we send ends ups being incinerated rather than dumped in a landfill.
