Bangkok to crack down on littering in the city

BANGKOK, 3 December 2012 (NNT) – The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) will begin enforcing its use of fines for litterers in an effort to crack down on pollution in the city.

Deputy Permanent Secretary for BMA Manit Techa-Apichoke, said there has been an exponential increase of rubbish in and around the capital’s canals. In a bid to strictly enforce the anti-littering law, the BMA will now fine offenders 200 to 2,000 baht for each offence without warning. Those who dispose of garbage in canals will be fined 10-thousand baht.

An additional punishment for littering has been outlined as performing community service by collecting garbage in public places.
