The MOI Waste Bank Week event held at Wat Chong Lom Temple Community in Pattaya signals the establishment of waste banks by local government bodies.

This eco-friendly drive, spurred by directives from the Chon Buri Provincial Administration, mandated the simultaneous launch of recyclable waste banks on January 1. Spearheaded by Pattaya’s Natural Resources and Environment Office on March 25, the event aimed to ensure strict adherence to waste management guidelines set forth by the Ministry of Interior.

Gathered at the event were an assembly of officials, waste bank managers, and conscientious residents. It served not only as a celebration but also as a heartfelt acknowledgement of the collaborative efforts poured into the implementation of waste banks across Pattaya.

With a united resolve to combat waste pollution, Pattaya stands as an example of proactive environmental stewardship, reported Pattaya Mail.
