Koh Tao’s mountain of garbage to be cleared away


SURAT THANI: The mountain of garbage, 45,000 tonnes of it, that is polluting Koh Tao island is to finally be removed with the signing of a contract with a new firm that has promised to properly dispose of it all.

“We’ll certainly clear it up and make Koh Tao a perfect, pollution-free tourist attraction,” Surat Thani governor Witchawut Chinto said on Wednesday during a visit to inspect the mess on the island.
